There are 4 basic types of gardens for raising produce:
Now that the weather’s warming up, we know you want to get out in the garden!
Step One: Know your Hardiness Zone
When is the best time to plant your garden? It really depends on where you live and what you want to plant. In the map below, you can see that the US has been divided up into hardiness zones by the USDA.These are determined by the average minimum winter temperature of that region, then divided into 10 degree F increments.
On March 20, one building of our Waverly, OH warehouse was converted into an assembly facility for our brand-new RK Tractors! Check out our behind-the scenes photos as Rural King begins this exciting new venture!
RK Tractors will be sold in 7 pilot stores beginning April 1.
Repelling mosquitoes can be done not only by coating yourself in bug spray, or carrying a ThermaCell Mosquito Repellent Dispenser, but also by planting some useful plants around your house or deck, or place strategically around the yard!There are many plants that help to reply mosquitoes since these pesky little bugs can not stand the smell, and this allow us to sit back and enjoy the view without getting bit. Rural King has several of these plants already started for you to just put in a pot or in the ground, as well as packets of seeds for you to plant as you please!
To start off with most of these plants emit a fragrance that is usually pleasing to us, such as lemon, lavender, and mint. Some of the plants repel naturally, others can be processed (boiled or crushed, etc) into a spray to use. Here is a link that explains how to use each of the plants to help you repel these pesky bugs, make sure to check your planting zones and correlate it with your plants growing zones:
