We went to all the yard sales we could find

Now that it’s finally (probably) safe to put away the winter gear, it’s time for everybody’s favorite time of year: yard sale season.

We helped plant strawberries at Apple Hill

When you think of planting fruits and vegetables, it’s done on your hands and knees, digging small holes in the dirt in your yard. But when you have 17,000 strawberry plants to get in the ground like Chuck and Diane Souther at Apple Hill Farm do, there just isn’t the time to plant them individually. And here’s a fun fact: “Strawberries are one of the more difficult crops we grow,” Chuck said. There’s way too many other things to get...

What hidden gems will you find this weekend?

It sure is fun to see what you can find at yard sales. And it just so happens that yard sale season is upon us. Sure there have been some here and there over the last month or so, but starting this weekend and extending through the summer months, chances are you won’t be able to pass a telephone or intersection without seeing a handmade sign pointing you to an address where people will be sitting in their yard or driveway trying to...
