Dare We Hope?

Bistro.jpgToday, here in Utah, it’s warm and sunny. Buds on my flowers and trees are starting to emerge. Snow is harder and harder to find. Dare we hope that Spring has arrived?

I love being outside, and look forward to preparing the yard for summertime. Part of that preparation for me this year is getting a new table for the deck. Our previous table was given to us and we learned the hard way that it isn’t snow and water friendly.  Basically the table top is sitting in a heap of rubble on the deck. 

My wife and I like to hide from the kids and have breakfast outside. So I think this year I am going to get the Lifetime Bistro Set. If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s pretty nice. Made from Polystyrene, which is a type of plastic that looks like wood, this table is definitely snow and water friendly. It comes with a table and two chairs.

Since it’s a Bistro-style table I’ll also need something bigger for the Summer barbeques, so I’m thinking about a Lifetime Picnic Table. The table I have in mind looks similar to a traditional wooden picnic table, with wide flat legs and attached benches, but is made from HDPE, also a type of plastic, and powder-coated steel, which make it weather resistant. This table has an umbrella hole built in too.

w-frame.jpgBoth these tables fold up for storage, but I will probably just leave them out, since we often get sunny days here in Utah in the winter, and we have been known to be outside eating breakfast bundled up in our winter coats. Also, because of how they are made, the Utah winter won’t do to them what it did to my current table.

Good luck with your Spring gardening preparations. If in your preparations you find you need some new tables, check these two out at Costco or online at buylifetime.com.

What's in a name?
Interesting littlestory here. Irecently received this email from Joanne Nelson of Exeter, Rhode Island: I purchased a Lifetime Personal Table several years ago and I love it. I am a quilter and this little table goes with me when I go to classes because I can set my sewing machine on it and adjust the height to exactly what I need so it is ergonomically correct for my sitting position However... I recently brought my table to a quilting retreat to let a 84 yr old lady, who is tiny, borrow my table so she could sew comfortably for the 5 day retreat. She was so happy about the table that I wanted to buy one for her. I found one and brought it home only to be very disappointed in the redesign of it. My table has metal legs and they are secured into a metal frame work so the legs can't come out very easily by accident if the t...
What Happened in Vegas Did Not Stay in Vegas
A fewweeks ago, I traveled down to Las Vegas, Nevada to attend the National Hardware Show. This show is a annual exhibit of manufacturers of Lawn and Garden products, as well as other miscellaneous products. Of course, I was most interested in the array of Lawn and Garden products. I felt a little guilty being there, as I was technically there for work but secretly looking around for myself. There are so many new and innovative products coming out for the yard. Fortunately, I flew down there so I didn't have room in my suitcase to buy anything and bring it back. I don't typically use this word, but "giddy" is a good description about how seeing all of these products made me feel about Spring starting and all the gardening I am soon going to be able to do! Lifetime had a large booth at the show, displaying our awesome Lawn an...
Compost your clippings! Garbage Stinks. Compost Doesn’t.
I had the very unpleasant experience recently of dumping excess lawn clippings directly into my garbage can. The can set out in the sun for a few days before I brought it into the garage. A few days later, WHOA! The can smelled like a skunk had stepped in dog doo-doo, rolled around in raw sewage, and then died in there. I was reminded once again, that lawn clippings should not go directly into the garbage can! I have a composter and do a fair amount of composting. To which, I add lawn clippings when I have brown material to balance it out. The ratio is 1 part green: 20 parts brown. I am often asked by people who dont compost if the compost stinks. The answer is no. That sounds strange because of the waste product that goes into making good compost, but its true. If the proportions of green and b...
