For anyone following the crisis in Ukraine, this is an excellent read. #ukraine   #russia  
In a rare moment of agreement with the Obama administration, I have never been in the camp that says the United States should overtly provide offensive arms to the Ukrainian government in its fight with Russia.

For those of you that can, replace your lawns with flowering plants. Just do a google search for "grass replacement" and you will find so many alternatives. I see a lot of folks here blaming big companies for the bee disappearance, and while there might be some truth to that claim we are definitely also part of the problem.

Story
Tagline
Name is Nick AKA Banana Nick, follow my blog for advice on South Florida gardening.
Introduction
I spend most of my spare time on the garden. Everything I do mostly revolves around gardening on a budget. A tight budget...Gardening is a new found passion and I am by no means an expert..but I am fortunate enough through my field of work to know a few knowledgeable old-timers. 

I am most passionate about fruiting varieties, edible vegetables, and useful herbs. Recently I have also learned to embrace decorative varieties, not just because they fill your space with color but also for their value attracting beneficial wildlife.

On labor day I finally decided to start a blog  dedicated to backyard farming on our very specific climate here in South Florida. Follow me as I take you through different places in the south speaking with various experts and  keep up with the progress here on my own backyard!

Keep learning!
