Deep fried turkeys as Thanksgiving feasts have been rapidly growing in popularity for the past few years. It’s no mystery why, really. Deep-fried turkeys are succulent, tender, juicy, and boast a crispy skin that can’t be beat! Plus, a deep-fried turkey cooks much faster than those that are roasted. It goes without saying, though, that one should be very careful when cooking with hot oil.
Flowering bulbs are fairly straightforward, so that even the most novice of gardeners can handle them. Dig a hole, drop the bulb in root-side down, and cover with soil. Then wait until spring. It doesn’t get any easier than that. But when it comes to potted bulbs, like amaryllis, people suddenly get nervous. Don’t be. Amaryllis are incredibly simple to grow and require little effort, but provide a big payoff.
Due to the constant rain last year, our lawns were in pretty good shape when fall rolled around. We got spoiled. But this summer was typical as far as Annapolis weather goes...it was brutally hot and devoid of much in the way of rain so your lawn should look pretty depressing about now. But the good news is that's how our lawns generally look in mid-September, so we know how to handle it. The work you put in now will pay off in spades come spring.
