  • COLUMN: There are things God will not do

    Jeremiah 32:17 says of God, "Nothing is too difficult for you." God created the trees, seas, all that we can see and we say with Jeremiah, there is nothing God cannot do. I believe that. But at the same time I would say there are things that God will not do.

    God will not sin. He is pure, holy and righteous. He says in Leviticus 11:44, "I am your God. Be holy, for I am holy." God has never and will never allow sin to enter his life or alter his character.

  • COLUMN: Raised beds an option for backyard gardeners

     Don’t let a sore back, bad knees or lousy soil stop you from gardening. Elevate your garden for easier access and better gardening results.

    The simple act of creating a raised bed improves drainage in heavy clay soil. Add in some organic matter to further increase drainage and improve the water holding ability for sandy soils.

    And if your soil is beyond repair or you don’t want to wait, a raised garden allows you to bring in quality soil and create a garden right on top of the existing soil or even paved areas.
