When I went to visit my Uncle Mark a few summers ago, I was sure that our trip would be boring and fruitless. After all, since he lived on a farm, how much could he possibly teach me about my own situation? However, once my wife started asking him questions about landscaping and gardening, I realized that he was an absolute gold mine full of valuable information. In addition to teaching us how to tell if a plant needs more or less water, he also taught us how to prune trees, regrade land, and even plant flowers the right way. My blog shares many of his helpful tips.
