Traveling American back roads, abandoned farmsteads come into view. More times than not, a thriving peony (Paeonia spp.) bush stands guard. Time your visit right, and you’ll be greeted by intoxicating blooms. The sight and smell testify to the tough beauty and resilience of these gorgeous old-time plants. Under the right conditions, they’ll live a century. Deserted homesteads provide excellent clues for peony care.

These origami pots are a breeze to make for starting seeds. I turned them out in a little over 4 minutes  while upcycling newspaper.

We just uploaded a new video to blackthumbgardener.com about making origami pots to start seedlings in. This a really quick and easy way to recycle something you might have thrown out into something very useful. Let me know what you think if you have a second.

These origami seeds pots are great for starting seeds in the spring. I was able to make them in under 5 minutes while upcycling old newspaper.

Story
Tagline
I'm so excited about gardening I wet my plants!
Introduction
I'm a father and soon to be husband (yeah!). I'm a gardener and a landscaper. I went to school for landscape design and currently run my own landscaping company in Rochester, NY called Arlington Landscape. When I'm not designing gardens for other people I like to spend time with my family in our gardens and when the weather become to cold or to rainy for that I like to write articles for The Black Thumb Gardener website.

I travel through buffalo often and stop for Chinese constantly. I drive out of my way to come here for the Hunan chicken (general Tso's). I'm glad they aren't near my home, I'd be broke.

My burger and fries were good and my 3 year old son loved all the airplanes hanging from the ceiling.

By far the best plate in Rochester. The seasoning on the home fries is amazing, it took me a year of eating these and experimenting to get a similar recipe to their home fries. The variety of hot dogs they have is dizzying. The quality of all their products is unsurpassed anywhere!

If I'm going for straight Chinese food this is my favorite place. I'm not a fan of the breading on Chinese foo so I just as for my general tsao's with white meat only and they cook it up that way for me, I love it. I was never a fan of the vegetables in other Chinese restaurants dishes cause they were always soft and soggy, but at Hong Wah's they are crisp and fresh, I end up eating all of them (sorry for the run on).

It seems like your either a person who eats chain pizza or not. If you eat this kind of swill it's on par I guess but there are so many better options in Rochester. Marks, Pontillo's, and my favorite Guida's. I never felt right about eating there dough knowing that it was made by a prisoner work program in the Midwest and then shipped to all there stores.
