TDelonix%20Regia%201he Royal Poinciana tree (Delonix Regia)
Voted one of the most colorful flowering trees in the world!
This tree can get 30-40 feet tall, but it’s wide spreading umbrella-like canopy can be wider than it’s height, a big bonsai. It can tolerate hard prunning & can be kept small to even grow in a greenhouse.
Very fast growing, about 5 feet a year until maturity. Full sun, drought tolerant, though it does like water during the growing season. Should not be exposed to temps below 30 degrees F.
Bright scarlet red flowers bloom for weeks into Spring & Summer!

WORX GT 24V Lith-ion Trimmer/Edger

  Ok, y’all, how do you feel about yard work? I enjoy working outdoors and having a beautiful yard. When it comes to edging and grass trimming I get tired out easily. Trouble was I had to either be really careful not to accidentally trim through the electric cord or tire myself out hauling around the heavy gas trimmer. Thank God for WORX. The WORX GT 24V Lith-ion Trimmer/Edger is lightweight, super well balanced and really easy to use. I don’t get worn out with WORX. It’s lithium battery operated so no cord either.

The really comfortable  handle is padded so you don’t get blisters. It is also adjustable for many gripping options and the ability to get into places other trimmers can’t.  This trimmer is a whole lot more powerful than I thought it would be. Works way better than our old electric trimmer and I don’t have to fight with a cord. Woohoo. Not heavy and bad for the environment like a gas trimmer. Did you know gas trimmers release hydrocarbons into the atmosphere? No worries about that with the WORX GT 24V Lith-ion Trimmer/Edger. The adjustable and articulating shaft can be set at 90 degrees, which enables you to get into hard-to reach areas such as beneath decks and shrubs.

I also love that this trimmer is also an edger with wheels for ease of keeping lines straight and level. Even makes those curvy sidewalks a breeze to edge.

I know y’all want to see it in action?

WORX GT 24V Lith-ion Trimmer/Edger

  • 24 volts for up to 25% more energy compared to 18V models
  • Lithium-ion battery technology: long life, no self-discharge
  • Converts from trimmer to wheeled edger in seconds
  • 100% automatic single line feed
  • Adjustable handle for maximum control and comfort

Designed for Higher Performance

Now you’ll get the same great WORX performance-with 25% more available energy! It’s all thanks to the Lithium-Ion battery technology. The new WORX GT WG165 features a compact, 24V Lithium-Ion battery pack that lasts 3 times longer than typical cordless weed trimmer edger.
And unlike other cordless electric weed trimmers that start losing power from the minute you turn them on, The new WORX GT Trimmer/Edger provides 100% power throughout the life of the charge. Better yet, there’s absolutely no battery memory, so you can charge your WORX GT Trimmer/Edger at any point during the charge cycle.

Angela’s Garden Waist Apron

  Angela’s Garden sent us over one of their Waist Aprons for review. I think this apron is so cool. What a great helper in the garden. I have had trouble in the past losing things in the garden when putting down my mini weeding tools and seed packs. No more worrying about laying down your seed packets and wondering if they will blow away. With this apron you have so many pockets you can hold all you need out in the garden. There are pockets for seeds, tools, gloves, your cellphone and anything else you might need. I even have enough space to sort my seeds into categories in these generous pockets. The Waist Apron’s material is super strong, Stitching is dang near perfect. It is even double stitched where it needs to be extra sturdy. Six pockets of varying size adorn the front. Looks pretty good too, don’t ya think? Love the pattern. Would work beautifully in the kitchen too.

Waist Apron, Indigo Berries

No. 7401
Our aprons are made of printed cotton with contrast ties and binding. Washable and one size fits most. Makes a great apron for the kitchen too. Practical gift for the gardener.

Sun Joe Aardvark 2.5 AMP Electric Cultivator Giveaway

  We try to plant a garden every year. I really love the flavors of home grown way more than store bought.I think the grocery store farmers pick their produce to early so they have time to ship it safely. Trouble with this is they sacrifice  the delicious flavors in the still maturing fruits and veggies. This, knowing my food is organic and the exercise I get while gardening are the reasons I garden. There is one thing I absolutely hate about gardening…WEEDS…more

Earth Box

I was sent an Earth Box to check out. I have been wanting one of these for awhile so I was really excited to get a chance to review one. I got to pick what color I wanted and I went with Terracotta. Earth Box is a wonderful way to container garden. I love that the Earth Box is so simple to set up. No weeding, no tilling. Earth Box waters from underneath so there is no worrying about fungus that can be brought on by watering from above. This is particularly a problem with melons and squash. We are fixing to move to town and I dreaded the prospect of not having a garden anymore.n. With Earth Box it’s possible to have fresh vegetable, herbs and berries in town. You can even use Earth Box on the balcony or roof of your apartment building. I am really looking forward to being able to  garden in a whole new way.

I think Earth Box is great for those who are getting a little older and not able to til, weed and do the digging it takes for traditional gardening.  Earth Box is a great gift idea for everyone. You can teach your kids about growing food. You can grow your own herbs for those who enjoy the culinary arts. Fresh foods are so much higher in nutrients than store bought fruits and veggies. And the flavor, don’t get me started on the flavor. With Earth Box you can be sure what is in your food. If you want to grow organic you can without wondering if your food is truly organic.
