To Rid Your Garden Of Weeds, Focus On The Seeds

(ARA) - Every garden is filled with them: millions of unseen weeds. They are dormant seeds that lurk just below the soil surface, ready to spring to life with just the briefest exposure to light.

Keep Tabs On Groundwater

Dear Editor,March 11-17, 2012 is National Groundwater Awareness Week. Over 90 percent of all public drinking water systems rely on groundwater to supply the population with drinking water.
