Ahhhh what great weather we have been getting the past few days. Yesterday and today the temperature has been around 55 to 60 degrees with the sun shinning bright over the mountain tops. I was even able to open some windows around the house to let the fresh air push out all that stale air from the long winter we are having here in Colorado.

It has been even nice enough to get out in the yard and start doing some preparation for the spring and summer gardening months to come. My wife and I are starting to plan our seed and plant orders and cleaning up all of the debrie in the yard that accumulates during the winter months. Even though it still is the month of February you still can get things done for your garden and landscape to get the jump on the spring and summer months. Here is a regional gardening guide for things you can do around your garden during the month of February….Read More

I now you must be thinking what the heck do I need a greenhouse for ? When most people think of greenhouses . They think of getting in there car and taking a moderate drive to a well established garden nursury in there town or surrounding community. At these garden nurseries you have your choice of a wide variety of plants,flowers and trees that you can browse through and decide what fits your garden landscape the best.

With winter slowly getting closer and tempatures starting to drop gradually every day. You may have plants and flowers that you might want to protect from the cold winter months but there is not enouph room in your home to keep your plants and flowers safe from the winter elements.

There are many types of greenhouses that are made for the average homeowner. These [greenhouses] come in a variety of sizes. From fitting on your back yard patio to having a complete walk in  greenhouse that fits in your backyard. And What suprised me the most is it is not very expensive to do. take a look at our recent article on how you can pick the right greenhouse to fit your gardening needs.

Enjoying the simple life

Being away from my 9-5 job a couple of years now. I really have started to enjoy the pleasures of the simple life. When i was working that 9-5 for all those years. I use to have a commute of 27 miles to work and back every Monday through Friday. I use to picture myself in one of those time elapsed videos driving my car to work for twenty five years going up and down that same highway road trying to impress my bosses for promotions and raises that where far an few between.

This is when I decided that there had to be a better simpler way to live my life. I always had a knack for the outdoors and getting my hands dirty with simple [landscaping projects], gardening and growing all types of vegetables in my garden. These are the things that truly made me happy so why not enjoy them more and forget about how I could qualify for that next promotion that might not come my way. :)

If you are longing for the simple life. I have found someone who has turned it into a science. Her name is Laura Shepherd and she definately practices what she preaches. Laura lives simply, frugally and respectfully in a society dominated by extravagance, excess and disregard. Which is something we all should strive to do more of instead of keeping up with the Joneses.  Take a look at the simple life through the eyes of laura Shepherd. You just might like what you see. :)
