Victory Garden

You may have heard of the term victory garden in the past but I doubt that very many people are still aware of what a victory garden is. Victory Gardens were grandmas way to stretch the monthly budget while also ensuring that her children were fed only the healthiest of vegetables. Every spring grandpa would till the garden and get the ground ready for planting the seeds. It was a big task from start to finish and though modern advances have made aspects of gardening much easier you can bet that it will still take a lot of time to maintain a vegetable garden through the harvest.

It is around this time of year that I am reminded of the legacy of gardening that was passed down. From my grandma to her daughter to me. you could say gardening is still in our blood. I think one of the biggest reasons we choose to raise our own vegetables is that once you have had garden fresh veggies it is hard to go back to the store bought veggies. Store bought veggies lack the full flavor that is common in the vegetables that we will harvest from our garden. As we move into our new home it is exciting to see all the potential that our new land has to support us as we work to living a more sustainable lifestyle with a smaller foot print.

Properly Trimmed Trees Increase the Value of Your Home

My wife and I recently bought a new home! It is a quaint little home in the heart of Logan with a white picket fence, a decent sized backyard and all things considered the home was in pretty good condition for its age. The previous homeowners had been a nice elderly couple that had lived there for over 40 years. But, due to failing health they had decided to move into a retirement home.

The previous homeowners had done a great job keeping up with the regular maintenance in their younger years. As they got older and weren’t able to do the manual labor tasks though parts of the property were neglected. One of the biggest eyesores on the property was the landscape. Years of overgrown trees and bushes lined the house and the fence. Now typically I would do the yard work myself. This time however there was a lot of work to be done and my new work schedule did not allow me the free time to tackle a chore of this size.

We decided to go with a tree trimming service in Logan, UT. We called them up explained the situation and asked for a bid. They were very prompt in arriving to the property, and got the job done the same day! We were very impressed with how efficient and professional of a tree service that this company provided. when they were done trimming the trees and bushes the property was almost unrecognizable from what it had been. Needless to say we were very happy and so were our new neighbors.
