June 9, 2014

It’s time to celebrate fathers and all they do. And in the garden, they do a lot, especially when it comes to digging. And grilling. And turning the compost. Join us this week as we give dads the recognition they deserve–and work our way up to Father’s Day (yes, it’s this Sunday–get shopping).

Monday

  • A tomato on the vine–is there a more sublime sign of summer? Yours probably aren’t ripe yet, but this week’s Field Guide will help them on their way, with advice that’s especially useful to novice growers.

Tuesday

  • Sophia’s Uncle Jorge raised three grown children at his home in the San Isidro neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Then he turned his hand to raising orchids. Sophia takes us on a Garden Visit to see the rare and spectacular orchids that Jorge collects on his travels and hangs from the trees.

Wednesday

  • However you feel about compost, you’ll gain new respect for “black gold” after you read Kendra’s DIY post. And if you thought you’d never see gorgeous compost photos, get ready to be amazed.

Thursday

  • As theories about growing roses have evolved, even England’s oh-so-traditional Royal Horticultural Society has been moved to rethink the design of the rose garden at Wisley, in Surrey. Here’s how their once-rectangular beds entered the modern era.

Friday

  • After architect Ben Davidson inherited his grandfather’s woodworking tools and workbench, he designed a garden shed to house them in style at his home in Cambridge, England. How could the world’s most gorgeous tool shed not be our Outbuilding of the Week?

And be sure to check out the Cool Dads showcased in this week’s issue of Remodelista.
