Excess moisture can be problem for gardens

It is summer, but a lack of water is not a problem for landscape plants and vegetable gardens at the present time.
Many sites with poorly drained soils are saturated and plants may show signs of excessive water stress.
Although water is essential to plants, too much of it can be harmful. When excess water fills the soil pores, displacing air, the roots cannot absorb sufficient oxygen for normal growth and may die due to asphyxiation.

Since Edward ‘Skeets’ Tuohy, Jr. was born and raised and then educated at Chicago’s St. Phillips High School and, since he harbored plans to attend college at Loyola, the most likely destination for a native of the Windy City would seemingly be Loyola-Chicago.
But a scholarship offer from another Loyola University — the one in New Orleans — had Tuohy spurning the City of Broad Shoulders for the Crescent City, the Big Easy, the Deep South.

Lifetime of headaches?

in

Every time I say that and I can see the person I’m talking to, a wince of pain crosses their face. I can understand why. Having had a lifetime of migraines, the idea of a 2-year-old having a migraine is horrifying. If nothing else, I feel blessed that I can’t remember that.
