Learn to garden like a master at one of several workshops happening this spring/summer in Columbia, SC.  Sponsored by the South Carolina Midlands Master Gardeners, these workshops are open to the public and free of charge.  Learn about rain gardens, adaptive gardening, shade gardening, container gardening, vegetables, herbs and much more.

Click HERE for their schedule of workshops.

South Carolina's mild climate offers residents a 12 month growing season in Columbia, SC.  From winter root vegetables and greens to summer fruits and vegetables we can eat local & healthy all year long!

A few of our favorites (& best producing) are tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and herb basil.

We love the Clemson Cooperative Extension website for planning, planting and harvesting your garden.  Check it out.  The website also lists a variety of fruits & vegetables and the recommended times of the year for planting.  A very helpful guide to amateur gardeners.  See what you should be planting when HERE.

What types of veggies are you planting this year?

St. Valentine's Day at Lake Carolina

Roses, chocolates, hearts and romance is starting to fill the air.  Valentine's Day is only a day away.  Have you made your plans yet?

At Lake Carolina, we have a few recommendations on pleasing your sweetheart with a Valentine's Day spent just minutes from home.

Treat your Valentine to a tranquil escape at Total Health Spa in Town Center for starters, then a new wash, cut & style from Halo Salon.  Pick up a sweet dessert from The Backyard Diner & Grille and a bottle of bubbly from Connoisseur's Corner and make your way over to Sunset Park to watch the sun melt over the Lake.  After sunset, walk home hand in hand and cozy up by your outdoor fireplace and watch the stars twinkle over head.

Now, wasn't that easy?!?

Share your ideas with us in the comments below.
