Extend the harvest this season

Extend the harvest this seasonDidn't get enough gardening in this season? Don't worry there is still time to grow garden-fresh vegetables and herbs this fall and winter.

Purchase transplants and seeds that will grow and flourish in the cooler fall and winter temperatures. Lettuce, spinach, Swiss chard, root vegetables, edible pansies and calendula as well as cole crops, like broccoli, are a few to consider.

Turn your passion into your dream job

Turn your passion into your dream jobWhere's your passion?

Is it in the work that you do on a daily basis? Are you still trying to figure out how to turn that passion into a job? Then you are not alone. There are so many people who go to work and daydream about one day doing what they love to do. They dream about turning that passion into a profitable business for themselves and their families. And then there are those who aren't in it for the money. They just want to do what makes them happy or what would bring some happiness to someone else. A true passion is something that you would do even if you didn't get paid. Not everything is about monetary satisfaction. There is satisfaction in knowing that you have a peace of mind and you are doing what makes you happy.

Emerald Ash Borer: Tree-killing pest

Emerald Ash Borer: Tree-killing pest You may have heard about a tree-killing pest in Minnesota called Emerald Ash Borer (EAB). EAB is an invasive, non-native insect that feeds on ash trees. It has ravaged ash trees in other states killing millions of trees. EAB was first found in St. Paul in 2009; and in Minneapolis in 2010. In 2010 EAB infested trees were also found in SE Minnesota in Houston County, and in Winona County in 2011. The most recent find this summer was in Ramsey County in Roseville. The Minnesota Department of Agriculture is maintaining a map of EAB infestation sites across the state. You can check if EAB has been found in your area at: http://www.mda.state.mn.us/plants/pestmanagement/eab.aspx

Harness the power of the ancestors

Harness the power of the ancestorsYears ago when my kids were small, I received some excellent advice from my friend and mentor. He told me to cherish the time I had with my children because there would come a day that we would not be able to sit down and have dinner together. As time went on, his counsel quickly came to pass. At that time, I had 4 kids in three different schools, and if you added in the complexity of multiple activities such as band, cheerleading, football, basketball, and track practices, we could hardly find time for a sit-down family dinner. Out of this need came our family's Sunday dinner tradition that has existed in some form or another for the last 25 years. This tradition has now grown to include my 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and extended family and friends.

Stop making excuses; fi nd the time

Stop making excuses; fi nd the timeExcuses! Excuses! Excuses! We make excuses for ourselves on a daily basis. We make excuses for not finishing what we started, we make excuses for not following our dreams, and we make excuses for just about everything that we know we should be doing but just don't have the drive to go out there and step out on faith.

Using short and long-term goals to improve your life

I am not a big fan of the term time management. We do not have the power to move time from one day to the next. We must therefore, manage ourselves against time. This self management is accomplished through goal-setting. People who set regular goals for themselves tend to attain at least a portion of them, which brings the self confidence needed to push further. Setting and obtaining goals is the vehicle that successful people use to improve their relationships and their lives.

Rejoice at others’ successes

Rejoice at others’ successesWhat is the difference between jealousy and envy? I've had to ask myself that question many times. Have you ever been jealous of someone or jealous of something that they had? Have you ever looked at someone else's situation and wished it was yours? We all have! But is that jealousy or envy?
