Happy Father’s Day!

My dad loves to stay busy around the house. That’s why some of my fondest memories with him are long conversations while I passed him this tool or that, or simply sat and watched him in action. I remember thinking that he could fix anything. He was my superhero back then and he still is! So in honor of Father’s Day, here are some special memories of dad from the Home Depot team:

Make The Most Of Your Kitchen Appliances

Posted by: on June 10th, 2011 | Make A Comment

Think back to your childhood…which room in your house gave you the most lasting memories? For me and a lot of others, nothing comes close to the kitchen. In the kitchen, our respective Moms cooked great meals and made our favorite treats and snacks. Family fellowshipped over dinners, and the kitchen was a dependable source of happiness whether it was morning, noon or night. As we got older and had to start cleaning dishes and making our own meals, our relationship with the kitchen changed. There is no reason, however, why you can’t rekindle that magic in your own kitchen.

Seasonal Maintenance For Your Fruit Trees

Posted by: on June 8th, 2011 | One Comment

Hello to all my fellow gardening enthusiasts!

Spring has a foothold across this great land of ours and summer is almost here.  That means that there are certain tasks that you should be putting on your current “To-Do” list.  For instance, when was the last time you took the time to aerate the lawn around your fruit trees?  To aerate means to allow air to penetrate and circulate through materials such as dirt and soil.  This process is made easier by using a variety of lawn and garden cultivating tools.

In many areas, soil may have a tendency to compact and allow water to run off rather that penetrate into the ground.  Compacted soil will not allow air, water or nutrients to percolate into the ground and reach the feeder roots of the plant or tree.  If water does not reach the feeder roots of your fruit tree, you may experience fruit drop, a condition where the tree will drop its fruit prior to being fully grown or ripened due to lack of water.
