But what if you have a gaming PC that you’re ready to get rid of?

There’s no sense in letting your gaming PC sit in your closet and collect dust. If you’ve been trying to figure out how to sell a gaming PC, we’re here to help.

I’m in week six of my eight week hand building ceramics class at a local studio and I’m very inspired by what I’ve learned. I’ve studied different kinds of clay, different methods for construction, as well as the kiln and glazing processes. I have a new appreciation for the medium and how much time and talent goes into making functional and sculptural pottery. My next class will be all about how to throw on the wheel, I’m excited to learn that technique.

Lately I’ve discovered some skilled artists that I wanted to introduce you to, ones you may not be aware of. Take a peek at their portfolios and online shops and consider them as sources for gifts for this upcoming holiday season. Each has their own unique style, I’m sure you’ll want to bookmark/pin a few favorites.

When Natalie and Mike Newman first saw their house, they were attracted by the neglected garden almost more than the house itself.

It was probably laid out in Victorian or Edwardian times. At one side, massive overgrown conifers crowded into each other around a side lawn.

Then there was a walled garden directly behind the house. Once the farm’s vegetable garden, it had a crumbling brick bothy and an old greenhouse. But it was hard to get past the thicket of self-seeded elders and brambles covering half the area.

Natalie and Mike fell in love with this old potting shed almost hidden under climbers. It’s probably Victorian or may be even older. The little greenhouse is dug into the ground by a few feet, which helps keep it warm in winter.

The front lawn had more thistles than lawn. And the

Today we’re visiting Ross Jallo’s garden in Iowa.

wide view of the garden with four raised beds in the centerI started preparing my backyard garden in the fall of 2019. Before that it was just bare weedy lawn, with a concrete slab, two ancient lilacs, and lots of Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica, Zones 5–9). The years 2020 and 2021, as challenging as they were, gave me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get a whole lot of gardening done. (I also managed to eradicate all of that knotweed, which I feel should be worthy of a medal.) This third year has been about acquiring experience about what truly works here in this particular garden. It’s one thing to have dreams—indeed, it’s indispensable!—but they must be tempered by the realities of climate, soil, and time constraints. Here are some of the success stories from my garden in eastern Iowa, Zone 5b, with clay-loam soil (pH 7.5).
