Summer Gardening
Gardening in South Florida can be a challenge whether you are a long time resident or new resident.  The soil is more sand than nutritious soil.  The subtropical climate may mean some plants may grow nearly year round.  Select plants carefully.

To live in harmony with our South Florida environment it is best to be aware of how plants, animals, insects exist and how we intersect with them and affect them.  Florida has more than eighty distinct ecosystems, which are home to many different plant and animal species.  Please DO NOT introduce invasive species into your home garden.  Invasive species cause harm to the environment, the economy and/or human health.  

Start preparing your garden site in the spring when it is still nice and cool outside.  Build

The home-improvement shows you see on TV make it look so easy. Buy a fixer- upper of a house with "good bones," and presto change-o, turn it into your dream home.

The reality, however, is that buying a fixer-upper is some serious work. One option is to hire someone to do the work, which is the way to go if you do not have the right experience for the job. However, it can be expensive, because you have to pay for labor. In addition, you cannot just check out and let the pro handle everything, because there may be a number of mistakes and miscommunications during a renovation.

Another option is to do the work yourself. You can save money on the labor, but the work will take significantly longer than a professional will. Too many homeowners think they are the

June 6, 1944 was the day Western Allied forces landed in Normandy, France.  Just after midnight, the Allied assault upon Hitler’s European stronghold began.  The operation caught the Nazi high command off guard.  Low tides and very bad weather convinced them that an attack was unlikely.

Airborne infantry made the initial attack, more than 1,000 British bombers pummeled Normandy’s coastline.   The first confirmation of a large-scale attack did not arrive until 2:15 a.m. and news an invasion was in progress was not confirmed until 4:15 a.m.,  it was not until almost sunrise at 6:00 a.m. , when any doubt was removed, when the horizon was covered by an unbroken line of Allied warships.  

More than 160,000 Allied troops landed along the 50-mile stretch

Everyone wants to be outside sunbathing, swimming, playing on the beach / pool, or just barbequing in the backyard.  While summer means fun in the sun, make sure you are not getting too much of a good thing.  Avoid consequences of overexposure to the sun like sunburns, premature aging of the skin, wrinkling, and skin cancer, including melanoma, by practicing proper skin protection.

South Florida is fortunate to have a number of farmers’ markets. Depending on the season, you can find locally grown produce.  Ask the farmer if the produce is certified organic or when it was picked?  Farmers who pick in the late afternoon ensure the most nutrient dense and tastiest produce.

The Weston Farmer's Market comes to St. Paul Lutheran Church and Preschool (580 Indian Trace) from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, May 17.

This is the last one of the season before the summer break. The event will also feature one-hour yoga sessions, with one for youths at 10:30 a.m. and another at 11:30 a.m. The market will feature organic and fresh produce, coffee, natural beauty and bath products and more.
