  • Mazie Bailey has never met a seed she didn’t like.
    In one sense, many of the flowers planted at 1890 Old Camden Highway, are new.
    But they are actually a new generation of the plants that filled the yard some 13 years ago when Bailey was awarded Yard of the Month by the Garden Clubs of Lancaster.
    She is probably one of the best seed harvesters to win the honor.
    Bailey’s yard is filled with “recycled annuals.”  
    The tall scarlet sage growing throughout her beds began as seeds from last year’s crop.  

  • From release
    “Between the Springmaid Sheets,” an exhibit of works of art from legendary Col. Elliott Springs’ daring 1940s and 1950s ad campaign will be on view from Nov. 4 to Dec. 29 in Lancaster. The controversial campaign is credited with rescuing a struggling textile business and helping Springs Cotton Mills become a giant of the industry.

  • Dori and Dan Schaupp married 37 years ago and have had vegetable garden every year. At their home at 1310 Crestfield Drive, they faced a challenge. The backyard retained water when it rained and became marshy, making gardening next to impossible. Their solution was to create raised garden beds.
    In 2004, they began with four raised beds with mainly vegetables and a small space for herbs. Over the years the number of beds has grown.

  • What exactly am I eating?
    That’s the question I pondered as I took a big bite from a strangely adorned slice of pizza one morning on my way to work.
    ‘Pizza for breakfast?,’ you might ask. Well, stop your judging for just a minute and let me explain. It’s not what you think.

  • Sue and Michael Mangum have lived at 136 Evergreen Road for the last 20 years. During this time they have enjoyed keeping their yard well-manicured, neat and full of seasonal blooms. Until now, little did they know that others admired their yard, too. They received an unprecedented five nominations for Yard of the Month recently.  
    After learning of these nominations and viewing the yard herself, Elaine Atkins with Leaf and Petal Garden Club agreed and selected the Mangums’ yard as the June Yard of the Month.

  • Recently chicken was on sale at the grocery store so I stocked up. Each time I open my freezer, though, I realize I may have gone a bit overboard.

    I need to clear some space, so we’re having chicken this week in my house. But I’m not worried about everyone getting bored, because there are so many delicious chicken recipes.

    I love chicken salad and Stacey Vadas’ Fabulous Chicken Salad.
