In most of the United States composting season is almost over -- or is it? Believe it or not, composting season just started! Just started you say? Yes! Okay, what do I mean by that? Well, think about it... the gardening season is winding down in my neck of the woods. All I've got left are cold-weather crops, and some unharvested potatoes, carrots, and red beets. We'll come back to those in a little bit.  All the other plants -- the tomatoes, the potatoes, the herbs -- have wilted with the frost. There's a lot of dead material to compost as you clean out your garden and prepare it for winter. That's why I say it's just the beginning of the composting season -- but there's a catch and a few things to look out for. Composting, as you well know, takes a certain amount of heat. Winter, as you also know, is relati... More

Wait! Before you stop reading because you weren't this month's winner, you might want to know that another site is currently giving away a Lifetime Double Shot Basketball Arcade Game! Now before I tell you about the Lifetime Double Shot giveaway, I need to congratulate our November giveaway winner Michelle K. of Carp Lake, Michigan!  She will be enjoying Thanksgiving dinner on her new Lifetime 6' Adjustable Height Folding Table and six Lifetime Folding Chairs.  Like most of you, Michelle's favorite feature of the adjustable height table after watching the video is that it adjusts.  The table's versatility and stain-resistant top were also popular favorite features. Surprisingly though, we learned that many of you didn’t know until this giveaway that Lifetime makes adjustable height tables... More

If you were walking down the halls of Lifetime's world-headquarters in Clearfield, you would notice something a little out of the ordinary-- Scarecrows lining the walls in many of our buildings. Not your average scarecrows... some have one eye, and others are missing important scarecrow features (other than being more cute than scary). There's a story behind them, and what they represent to those who walk down these halls frequently. After nearly 25 years in Northern Utah, Lifetime Products enjoys longstanding relationships with the local community, and participates in a variety of local events and causes. Just down the street from Lifetime's Clearfield facility and our world-wide headquarters, is the South Clearfield Elementary School. Lifetime has partnered with the school on various programs,...

Three of our executives--President, COO, and VP of Research & Development--recently had the opportunity to visit Toyota’s assembly plant in Japan. Their visit was not to see how cars and trucks are built, but rather to learn more about Toyota’s “Lean” manufacturing ways. Lean is a term used frequently here at Lifetime. Basically, Lean is centered on preserving value with less work. Lifetime has been implementing Lean methods for more than ten years however; there has been renewed emphasis the past two years. Some of which include flow of material and plant layout. The concept of Lean manufacturing is growing in popularity around the world but it originally derived from the Toyota Production System (TPS) in Japan. Our executives said Japan, in general, is an unbelievably clean and neat country whic... More

This contest has ended.  Let's face it, your Thanksgiving planning plate is already more than full with cleaning, invitations, grocery shopping, cooking, and decorating.  The last thing you need to worry about is how in the world you're going to seat all of the guests coming to your house for Thanksgiving dinner.  But, if you enter our giveaway this month, you may be able to sit back and relax  (in a Lifetime chair, of course)  and check off at least one thing on your growing to-do list. This month we're giving away one Lifetime 6' Adjustable Height Table and six Lifetime Folding Chairs to one lucky winner!  Set the Lifetime Adjustable Height table at its 29" height and your dining dilemma is solved.  If you're expecting lots of little turkey gobblers this year, use this Lif...

Today is unofficially National Basketball Day.  It was on November 6, 1861 that James Naismith was born.    Thirty years later, Naismith was a young physical education teacher at a YMCA in Massachusetts with bored students who needed an indoor athletic distraction during the winter.  Naismith decided to nail two peach baskets to the balcony at both ends of a gymnasium.  He divided his students into teams and they attempted to toss a ball into the baskets…the game of basketball was born.  According to notes kept by Naismith about the first "Basket Ball" game,  the game was played with nine players on each team using a soccer ball.   Today, even though the rules and equipment have changed slightly, basketball is played by more than 300 million people worldwide, making it...

The other day my family took advantage of the perfect outdoor Fall weather and we spent the morning riding bikes to the local library and school playground. While our kids were busy exploring the teeter-totters, swings, and playscapes, my husband and I happened to notice a few lonely, but well-used, tetherball poles. With just one silent look at each other, we both knew it was "game on". Now, don't ask me what I was thinking…I'm 5'6" and my husband is 6'4".  Obviously, I didn't really stand a chance.  But, the competitive side in me had to try.  I guess maybe I remember too vividly my elementary school days when I was always the unlucky kid to patiently wait my turn in line, only to have to play against the biggest kid in the class who could wind the ball around the pole in just one punch.  No line...

Five S's for Gardening Success
The beautiful thing about gardening is, in one way or another, everyone is a beginner. Even if youve been gardening your whole life, theres something new to learn about growing different kinds of plants, growing in different climates, or dealing with new pests. If youre just starting out and contemplating planting a tomato, rose, or petunia, dont be intimidated. Trial and error are the best ways to learn. For example, I tried multiple ways to rid my yard of moles. I tried baits, traps, and even vibrating mole repellants to no avail. It wasnt until I tried castor oil, that I was able to convince the moles to move away. Here are some tips on getting started in the vegetable or flower garden. Follow these 5 Ss and youll be well on your way to a productive, beautiful garden. SunMost fruiting vegetables (tomatoes, beans, squash)...
