Growing Your Garden the Green Way

How Does Your Garden Grow?

As a gardener, you love the feel of earth between your fingers. 

The look and smell of fresh flowers serves as a reward for the hours you spend on your hands and knees. 

Or you may supplement your diet with fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs from your garden. 

Either way, it seems counterproductive to douse your plants with chemicals such as pesticides and fertilizers just to get them to grow. Fortunately, there are a number of alternate strategies that you can utilize to maintain the health of your plants, keep pests away and grow your garden the green way.

Strokes and Heart Attacks Require Immediate Attention

Strokes and heart attacks happen every day.

Sometimes heart attack victims do not recognize the attack as such.

Not all heart attacks are the sudden overwhelming experiences familiar to moviegoers.

Sometimes, particularly at the beginning, heart attacks can be manifest as simply shortness of breath or an uncomfortable sensation, usually in the chest but sometimes in other regions of the upper body. Heart attacks can also involve giddiness, nausea or cold sweats. The symptoms of heart attacks are especially varied in women.

Baby Magic No-Rinse Wash Review

Baby Magic No-Rinse Wash is a great product to keep "on hand" (pun intended!) for you and your children.

Baby Magic is like soap in that it cleans dirt and grime off of hands. However, Baby Magic does not require any water!

When we received our No-Rinse Wash, I was wondering what the difference was between a no-rinse wash and hand sanitizer.

There are a few differences:

Why Cleaning is Going Green

Carpet Cleaning is Going Green

Carpet cleaning is a thriving industry.

As long as we have homes, we'll have carpeting to care for in them.

However, what few people are aware of is the way in which the carpet cleaning industry has changed. While it remained largely static following the 1970s and the introduction of new housing regulations, in the last decade it has seen a few revolutions in technology and technique.

The first was the introduction of cleaning chemicals that would not affect those with severe allergies and pulmonary conditions. The second was the introduction of truly green cleaning processes.
