Residential Mailboxes have come a long way since that rusted box on the rickety post. Not only am I going for functionality and stability, but curbside decor. We've done a good amount of work here, and I want the front of the house to reflect that. I want to show off just a little.

I've spent the last week cleaning Edaville, placing orders and waiting for repair men. Shawn Carr came along to help and that was the best thing that could have happened! Shawn Carr is a cleaning machine. KC's Cafe at Edaville USA is squeaky clean and sparkling!
Thanks Shawn for all of your help, I couldn't have done it without you!

Thanks to my friend Heather Kolmar for the guest post.
Gardening in the summer time is one of my absolute favorite activities for a multitude of reasons. As soon as the seasons change I know I can turn off the oregon direct tv specials that has accompanied my afternoons for the whole preceding winter season and finally head outdoors to do some serious working out of my green thumb. When the skies clear of clouds and turn blue I throw on my huge straw hat to block the sun’s rays from my eyes and I go outside with a little garden shovel. First I weed out all of those nasty weeds that have been snaking around my plants over the beginning of the spring and then I head out to the local gardening store. Once there, I always pick out a few new terra cotta pots that will house my new selection of flowering plants. Then I head over to the nursery and select a few new flowers that I have never had in my garden before. I like my garden to be a selection of tropical plants, plants native to the area, and new types of succulents or cactus. I even enjoy adding vegetables and fruits to my garden. When I have found the few perfect additions for this year’s garden I take them home, grab the shovel and begin to plant them.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Uncle Jims Worm Farm. All opinions are 100% mine.
Last week I brought home the plants for my new summer vegetable garden. I have three varieties of tomato, green peppers and hot cherry peppers, jalepeno, yellow squash and zuchinni, pickling cukes, regular cukes, white onion, red onion and pumpkin. I may try some winter squash and garlic.
I have a little work to do to get my sandy soil ready for the plants. I have a small compost heap, and I 'll use that to amend the soil in my new garden. I'll also add about a yard of nice, rich soil that Pop composted at the greenhouses. I asked how he manages such great compost. He told me to consider composting worms. Pop said an effective compost heap has one special and important ingredient, the red worm, and that any good fertile soil is full of worms.
Pop told me to get in touch with Uncle Jim, who has a great gig going. He's raising worms and providing education and the supplies needed to get worms working in any compost heap and garden. Uncle Jim told me that using organic homemade fertilizers are far more beneficial than using chemicals in lawns and gardens. He also said that composting has a very positive impact on landfills. Since a compost pile is exposed to oxygen by turning and through the use of worms, it produces CO2 instead of methane. In a landfill, waste is buried and doesn't get any oxygen, so it produces methane. I love the idea of using kitchen scraps, yard and garden waste for compost instead of sending it to the landfill.
