If you've been waiting for a chance to get your little ones into the gardening spirit, this weekend is the perfect time to do so. On Saturday May 5, 2012 - All Home Depot stores will present a FREE Kids Workshop sponsored by Bonnie Plants and Growums. As you might already know, The Rock Father is a big fan...
If the crazy weather wasn't enough to make you nuts this year, maybe you're like me and the Great Dandelion Explosion of 2012 has done the job just fine.  Sure, Dandelions can be useful, edible, and they've been known to help out other plants from time to time, but in what's supposed to be a beautiful, flowing sea of...
I posted a picture on Facebook earlier this week but figured it was time to share it with the rest of the world (those that haven't liked my page yet). I figure this is also a good time to tell a story or two.This past Tuesday (4/24), in-between rocking that new PRONG record that came out, the little one...
Earlier this month, I posted a quick news item about STORY LAURIE, and some free tracks that were made available for download from her new GROOVIN' IN THE GARDEN album. After running that item, Laurie McIntosh got in touch and we exchanged some emails... and then a package arrived here last Friday. Inside that package was a CD, a...
Today is Earth Day 2012, and if you've been visiting The Rock Father for a bit, you might've noticed our EARTH DAY NETWORK PLEDGE Box off to the right on the Gardening blog. We pledged to plant a garden, which is something that will continue having a positive impact long beyond a single day. It's important to remember the...
It's Earth Day Weekend, and the celebration is on here at Rock Father HQ. If you're been following our Gardening Blog here on The Rock Father™, you already know how much fun the little one and I have been having with Growums. This awesome program ''gives some character'' to popular vegetables with an interactive website that nurtures the real-world growing...
It's Earth Day Weekend, and to celebrate, The Rock Father™ has some cool giveaways to share! For this round, I'm giving readers a chance to score a copy of NATURE JAMS, the excellent new album from FARMER JASON and Buddies. The album was bestowed a 4.5 out of 5 Rating when I reviewed it last month, and it's a...
Proving that nothing can ever happen entirely trouble-free, our Growums had a mishap this week. After doing quite well up until now, we were intending to wait maybe one more week until planting them in a raised garden bed here at Rock Father HQ. Everything was right on schedule when Carin the Carrot sent over an email alerting us...
The wacky weather here in Northern Illinois continues this week, with temperatures slingshotting from the 60's to the 20's. As I type this right now, my iPhone says it's 40 right now, with a low of 28 expected for tonight. By Saturday it's expected that we'll hit 70 again, but where did those early 80's go? Regardless, it's about...
Now this is what I call a crossover. While it's technically something that would be posted under 'Music for Kids,' when an album is called GROOVIN' IN THE GARDEN, it's seems fitting to tell you about it here on The Rock Father™ Gardening Blog. Released last December, this album from New York-based STORY LAURIE & Friends features 16-songs...
