Father’s Day, Daddy’s Day, PaPa’s Day!

Mother’s Day here and gone. Lots of people came up with creative ways to celebrate Mother’s Day inside as the weather here was lousy. It was cold and rainy and most of us stayed inside, not even wanting to go out to a restaurant to eat. Indiana’s weather is very unpredictable and up north, they had snow early , then rain and finally sunshine . In Missouri it rained all day and family said they had a fire in the fireplace, watched a movie and had their picnic inside rather than going on their hike as planned.

Father’s Day will be here in no time. What are you planning for that day? Here are some good ideas from Amazon that might please the man in your life. Go for it!!

Making sure Dad has time to play golf if that is his passion or if he just wants to learn. (tee time needed). Remember to tell him what time he needs to be back to share some of Father’s Day with family. No clubs check here. Just learning don’t spend a fortune.

Grilling, does he love it and enjoys cooking? How about new utensils for the cook of the house.

What about a new book? Mystery, Politics, War or Historical. Maybe something non-fiction. How about good book used for relaxing during this day or for a relaxing evening instead of TV.

It is always difficult to think of gift ideas for someone you care about and you want to really surprise them. The man in your life is he a sports enthusiast, a camping expert, a fisherman, or someone who wants to just relax when he has free time.

Some ideas for the camping enthusiast. An all round light to use in emergencies, but also when, having fun on your camping trip. A Camp chef to cook on and the aroma of fresh coffee brewing when you wake up on your camping trip. Don’t want to sleep out in the invigorating colder air, but still want the camping, hunting or fishing experience. Just check out this tent listed below as a possible gift idea.

I hope the above ideas interest you and tickle your fancy as different gifts for your man.

Garden Clean Up – Autumn

Fall coming and beautiful colors will be seen. The gorgeous colors of the fall mums, Idian corn, a huge array of pumpkins and the beautiful leaves on the trees. However along with that comes a reminder that garden clean up is here also. When deciding how to clean your garden think about being sustainable, affordable and efficient or hiring an outside service.

Fall Garden chores can require an array of tools and supplies to be executed properly. Whether it be raking leaves, composting, cleaning gutters, weatherizing beds, or planting spring bulbs, a variety of sustainable products exist for these tasks! Short on time and money? There are plenty of quick and affordable options as well!

Sustainable Garden Clean-Up

Several comments on this Envirocycle composter from words like elegant, cute, adorable and incredible. Composter is small, efficient, easy to put together (take out of box, set barrel on base. No critter problems. Company stands behind product. Very proactive in trying to solve problems. Customer service is awesome, eye-opening, could give lessons to others. Follow directions for good compost and tea. Usually rolling barrel every 3 days does product good results.

Negative comments, problems with lid and lock, mentioned more than once. Rain water will fill base, composter heavy versus not heavy. Soggy compost even after adding brown material such as shredded newspaper, versus produces great compost. My plants and flowers are thriving.

Quick and Affordable Garden Clean-Up

Cost seems to the biggest factor here. However other things may impact decision to purchase these bags. Convenience, where you live, availability of stores. Worth the price! Several comments on durability, strength of bags, great for leaves, and also great for getting a large load of clothing to a thrift store, without dropping everything on the ground.

Impression was that purchaser would be getting “The Home Depot” bags and they did not. Received “Do It Best” bags and some did not like. Comments also made about the bags not being closed on the bottom. A glue problem?

Hiring a Service

When all else fails you can think about hiring a service to help with your fall clean up.Look online, in the newspaper and smaller papers for ads stating will do a fall clean up. Another possibility could be hiring a neighborhood teenager to help a couple of weekend to get the job done. Of course, again cost becomes a factor, so just making suggestions.

Bring Your Garden Inside! Top Products for Indoor Plant Care

I love house plants! It is essential to provide your plant with proper soil; drainage & moisture retention are most important for thriving, healthy specimen! My favorite indoor potting soil to use is Miracle-Gro Indoor Potting Mix 72776430 6 Quart (2 Pack).

This potting soil is great because it is incredibly dynamic & suitable for a broad range of indoor & tropical plants. Use caution with succulents, cacti, palms, and ferns, as this soil is developed to retain moisture better than other blends.

Plants take up alot of space, so its always a great idea to use hanging planters and baskets. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they allow for more floor and table space in the living rooms of your home.

Umbra Triflora Hanging Planter for Window, Indoor Herb Garden, White/Black 

The Umbra Triflora Hanging Planter is a great way to keep smaller succulents, cacti, & even kitchen herbs!
