We are building and I'm intrigues by using rock salt to add texture/visual interest to our driveways, patio & pool deck. Perhaps accented with brick edging and expansion joints. SO many options make it really hard to choose!

These crops sprout best when soil temperatures stay below 70F, but if you wait until the soil cools to plant them they may not have enough time to mature. Instead, start seeds indoors or in a shady place outside and set out the seedlings as soon as they show their first true leaf.
Try growing:
Chinese cabbage such as Bok Choy
Endive and escarole
Radicchio
Lettuce
Parsley
Spinach

Signs of autumn are often apparent by the time the soil cools enough to grow the leafy greens that define many fall vegetable gardens. Cool temperatures tame flavors, so many gardeners wait until a frost or two have passed to harvest some of the crops in this group.
Arugula
Cilantro
Lettuce varieties which are suitable for winter
Mache (also known as lamb’s lettuce or corn salad)
Mizuna
Turnips (for both greens and crunchy roots

Three Magic Words for a Clean Home and a Better Life

Not a natural tidying and organizing whiz? Take hope in one short phrase that can change your life forever Full Story

I'm a naturally organized person. My husband not so much. You can walk into our bedroom and immediately tell whose half of the room is whose. I admit I'm a tad compulsive about tidiness, but I find visual clutter to be mentally stressful. It drives me crazy when hubby comes home and just drops everything at the front door. When I make mention of an item out of place (which has been there for a while) he tells me he was going to put it away but I know that unless I tidy it, it will stay there forever. Somehow it doesn't bug him. The kids are good about picking up after themselves when I remind them, but it needs to be commented on before they'll do it. They aren't naturally organized either. The thing is though, out of all of us, I spend the most time physically in the house. The kids go to school and hubby goes to the office. If the house is cluttered, they don't have to see it all day. Sigh, some days I wish I could just crawl into a magazine page and live in there lol. Most of those photos are a bit too sterile though I will admit. I know the key is balance and I try not to drive my family crazy with my obsessiveness.

I have found one thing that helps in tidying up. As you pick up someone's sock, instead of sighing about the person's thoughtlessness, think about how much you love him or her and how blessed you are to live with him or her. Life is short, and things change.

Some of the structures and fences in the photos look pretty close and immovable. Please remember that someone, someday is going to have to work on that air conditioner! They are going to need room for their toolbox, room for their bodies, room to remove A/C covers without having to contort their bodies into unsafe, pretzel shaped and injury inducing postions and room to swing their elbows with an 14-18" handled tool in thier hands!
Don't plant bushes, vines and perennials or install fences too closely!

This goes for gas meters as well...says the woman who changes gas meters for a living. ;-)

Pyrus calleryana is a terrible tree! This species has become a scourge on the landscape with an overly dense habit combined with extraordinary weak wood. If you like cleaning up branches or even whole trees that have snapped off after a summer storm, go ahead and plant them. Otherwise, there are PLENTY of other choices that will provide seasonal interest and shade where you want it that are far superior to this ill-conceived cultivar.

Jennifer, my folks in Fresno County, have beautiful, but quite large Ginkos. Their fall color is incredible. I make sure I make a trip at the right time just to stand on their golden carpet. You might consider a chitalpa, a cross between a dessert willow and a katalpa. They bloom all summer long, but as they are sterile there is no pod drop. Crepe Myrtle love the heat and aridity and come in shade tree sized versions, Just not sure how fast they grow. Good luck.
