    Get your kids involved in the National Parks Junior Ranger program

    Recently my family and I went on vacation and we visited several of the National Parks out west including Grand Canyon and Zion National Park. We had been there before but when the boys were much younger. This time they had more fun and are old enough to participate in the Junior Ranger program at our National Parks. Most of them recommend that the child be at least five years old, some start at age four.

    There’s still time for a vegetable garden

    The idea of a fall vegetable garden can be a bit misleading. It took me an embarrassingly long time to realize that the label “fall” indicated harvest time, not planting time. Granted, in July and August, while we’re swimming in 90+-degree heat, it’s a challenge to remember that the longest day of the year is long past. Temperatures stay warm, but the hours of daylight that plants need decreases every day. The time to plant is now, so perhaps a better name should be “midsummer garden.”
