It's Veggie Week at Natureworks! We start preparing for this time of year in the fall, contracting with organic growers to grow all kinds of edibles for us. It is quite the process, as we all have VERY strong ideas about what varieties must make the list....

Welcome to an absolutely stunning week in May. Mother's Day weekend is upon us and it's time to celebrate not just our moms, but all of the strong, powerful women in our lives. My mom was a tiny woman and an amazing human being. There was nobody...

We welcome the month of May with open arms as this week promises sunshine and a much needed warm up. I layered up and worked in my own gardens over the weekend, primarily splitting and transplanting asters and mums and other perennials. My veggie gardens...
