I'm prepping some cool content for the Gardening Blog here on The Rock Father (if the weather would actually stay warm for more than a day), and while I'm still getting things together, the folks at PBS Digital Studios have a new installment of the It's Okay To Be Smart series that fits in well with the gardening theme....
With Spring finally here (hopefully to stay), we're gearing up for our 2013 Gardening Season here at Rock Father HQ. If you're a newer reader, you might've missed the garden adventures from the past two years, so let me put this simply: Gardening Rocks! There's nothing better than teaching the little ones how to grow their own food and...
There's over a foot of snow on the ground here at Rock Father HQ right now, yet here we are with the first post on The Rock Father Gardening Blog for 2013. Oh, how I've missed gardening... and it's been five months since this section received an update. I didn't get to blog about Gardening as much as I...
It's been a weird year for gardening, and with Fall finally upon us, I wish we had a bit more to harvest. One of our apparent successes this year is technically still a work-in-progress, but I wanted to highlight it here on The Rock Father Gardening Blog: Pumpkin on a Stick. For the past two seasons, Addie and I...
The folks over at Step2 just updated their site with New items for the fall, and two new items caught my eye for gardening purposes: the 40-Gallon Rain Barrel and the Garden Cart and Dolly. We have a rain barrel here at Rock Father HQ, but it's a homemade contraption that came with the house when we bought it....
It's still hot outside. Not as bad as when I posted my last update from The Rock Father Garden, but it's still hitting 90 on a daily basis... and it's still dry. We've finally had some rain, but it's been in monsoon quantities for some very short periods of time. Too much, too fast - not right to make...
It's hot outside. In fact, it's 96 as I type this, and the little one is having some time with Mommy and new baby sister as I work. We came back in from some watering a little while ago, so I figured it was time for an update on The Rock Father Garden. It's been a war out there,...
Last Fall, one of the most popular posts on the Mach 1 version of The Rock Father (since reposted here) was a Garden Project transforming two antique washtubs that belonged to the little one's Great Grandparents. For the summer of 2012, those washtubs have kept their position as planters, but with a different flowering assortment. Here's a look at...
It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted an update on our Gardening Adventures here at Rock Father HQ, and the reason is simple: We've been busy! The weather has finally cracked (though it's dreary today) so the veggies are in the ground. We've also done some flower gardening (more on that later), but let's take a...
I need to lower my expectations for everything. As depressing as that may sound, it's true. We've been having bad luck when it comes to cool-sounding events being 'as-advertised' when we actually get there. The May Kid's Workshop at Home Depot? No exception. On a National Scale, I think this is a great program with great partners - but...
