Planting Update Early June

We are not as far along as I would hope for with our planting this year, but we have managed to get most of our containers planted and going. I plan to keep adding to the garden over the next few weeks with plants that do well late in the season. We also lost a hydrangea bed that was on the north side of the house – not sure what happened to the plants, but we are going to transplant the survivors to other areas and transform that bed to a salad/shade herb garden. It will be an interesting shade garden experiment and I will post back with what does well.  Meanwhile, our tomatoes that were planted from seedlings are doing excellent.  We lost most everything else we tried to start from seed, I think next year I will try to plant them in the pots they will eventually be in.  Sneak peek of our deck renovation is also included – more pictures of the finished product to come soon!

Nutrition for Teeth

Taking a look at eating better again and came across this video.  While I don’t agree with skipping out on the dentist if you have a problem, I do like the idea of eating better to help keep your teeth healthy from the inside out.
