Feature:
5 Things to Do During Black Fly Season
You expect to find lists of activities and boredom busters for rainy days.
Fortunately, except for that time with the ark, rain doesn’t stick around for forty
days and nights. Unfortunately, that’s just what the
black flies do. They arrive in
time for Mothers’ Day and disappear around Fathers’ Day. Forty days with a few
extra for good measure.

Garden:
Growing Fruits in Containers
If you have poor soil, limited time or a small space for fruit gardening, limited
mobility, or want to garden creatively or on patios, then you should consider
growing fruits in containers.  

Recipe:
Chocolate Chip Cupcakes
Who can resist a sweet little cupcake?
