Believe it or not, with all of this COVID-19 craziness taking up our attention, summer is almost here! That’s right: that blessed, welcome window of green pastures and warm temperatures is en route, and while we can still break out the shorts and t-shirts and ready ourselves for our seasonal tans, this summer’s obviously going to be a little different.
But that doesn’t mean you can’t tend to the ol’ homestead in the meantime! While we continue to social distance to flatten the curve of the pandemic, our homes and gardens still need to be properly maintained, and there’s no better time than now to get those projects out of the way!
In our 2020 Summer Home & Garden issue, we chat with Mother Earth Garden on how we can build the best organic garden in our own backyard; we learn about summer painting trends thanks to the fine folks at Hirshfield’s; and we get some tips on DIY landscaping courtesy of Bachman’s.
On top of that, we learn about the new Elder Phone Companions program by Little Brothers—Friends of the Elderly; we profile local licensed counselor Daniel Sullivan; and Ellen Krug gets in on the gardening theme with her latest Skirting The Issues column.
In spite of all of the current global circumstances, we’re excited for summer to come, and we’re equally excited for what Lavender has in store for this season! Stay safe out there, wash your hands, and keep healthy!
