Back yards are often busy places with dogs, children, and entertainment areas and as a result food gardens often are low on the priority list. Pets are allowed to run in enclosed back yards often at the detriment of vegetable and herb gardens. It's amazing how little feet of children can destroy an herb garden in such a short time. However, while the back yard is busy with people and pets, the front yard is a bit more serene and tranquil - the perfect spot for a garden. The front yard, often underutilized in American gardens, suddenly becomes the location of choice for growing food. The use of 100 color photos, as well as sidebars and step by step guides make this a book that will guide both the novice and experienced gardener in combining complimentary vegetables, herbs and flowers in the creation of a visually appealing home front garden.

The author of Sweet Remedies offers a straightforward, empowering guide to homegrown herbal remedies for illness injuries, and preventative health. Most of us understand the value of eating and buying local. Taking back our food, goods, and services from multinational corporations and sourcing them from small growers, producers, artisans, and entrepreneurs benefits our families, our environment, and our communities. Heal Local argues that “100-mile healthcare” can be equally valuable in terms of how we treat illness and injury and maintain wellness. This innovative guide demonstrates that by harnessing multifaceted whole plants, we can rely on homegrown or regionally produced herbs rather than importing exotics and non-natives. Based on the small apothecary model, author Dawn Combs explains how to: · Maximize the benefits of homegrown first aid, from increased freshness, potency, and effectiveness to community resilience and local economic growth · Make home herbal healthcare less intimidating and more attainable, by focusing on twenty herbs to effectively treat most common injuries and ailments · Implement a local medicine culture safely and sustainably, while protecting and respecting wild plant populations Many herbals overwhelm their readers, presenting a list of hundreds of herbs, each with a different purpose. Heal Local empowers readers by showing that you don’t need to know everything about every herb on the planet to create a complete home apothecary. Anyone can be self-sufficient with their wellness, regardless of their previous knowledge, experience, or available space.

Florida Real Property Litigation provides invaluable statutory and case analysis, pleading forms, and practice pointers. This essential reference examines a broad range of topics, including access and eviction, foreclosure of mortgages and liens, boundary and title problems, and covenants and easements, and features an entire chapter devoted to successful recovery of attorneys' fees in real property disputes. To further aid the practitioner, the text incorporates over 100 forms and checklists to guide you through efficient and effective litigation. Highlights of the new 9th Edition include: Discussion of 2018 Florida Legislature’s substantial amendments to F.S. Chapter 66, governing ejectments, (1) authorizing a person with a superior right to possession of real property to recover possession by ejectment; (2) providing that a person entitled to possession of real property has a cause of action to regain possession from another person who obtained possession of real property by forcible entry, unlawful entry, or unlawful detainer; (3) requiring that the court determine the right of possession and damages; and (4) prohibiting a governmental entity from adopting or keeping in effect certain ordinances and rules based on customary use, etc. Ch. 2018-94, § 1, Laws of Fla.

Discussion of the Florida Supreme Court’s decision in Bolettierei Resort Villas Condominium Ass’n, Inc. v. Bank of New York Mellon, 228 So.3d 72 (Fla. 2017), ending the debate over the application of the statute of limitations for foreclosure actions, holding that the statute of limitations begins to run upon acceleration (and not a missed payment), and a second foreclosure on the same loan is permitted, provided the default alleged in the second action is within the five-year limitations period. Discussion of the judicial split regarding whether a circuit court has subject matter jurisdiction to adjudicate an independent deficiency action when a plaintiff requests deficiency relief in its complaint in a separate foreclosure action involving the same note and the foreclosure court enters a final judgment reserving jurisdiction to grant deficiency relief.

This is a story of dysfunctional families and the effects encountered by one young woman who has been in a state of denial for decades. When the winds of change slowly blow in her direction-- this woman is reminded and convinced that her life has been a difficult one at best. She is forced to search her scattered and fragmented memories in an attempt to survive the unrelenting devastating blows of a difficult reality. The reality of her past begins to reveal it's haunting qualities early one morning after a disturbing dream and continues to grow while she survives one devastating blow after another. And through a persistant state of depression with a mutilated spirit and her amputated muse she begins therapy with a compassionate miracle worker. Her journey is a long one--as her therapist guides her though a maze of suppressed and repressed memories into recognition. And with recognition is a set of new eyes viewing and evaluating all of her choices while living in a life of denial that she created for existance. Survivng as a damaged person can dictate how a soul will evolve. An important component is the disposition of the person. A person's character dictates how the damaged person lives/survives and they usually know how to survive; it can be a negative or a positive life of survival. Survival depends strongly upon the individual, the boundaries and environment that they create to support his or her life. With the support of her family and friends she finds acceptance of her reality and purges her soul of a mistaken life style of fantasies.

The front yard is the stepchild of landscape design, ignored in the current enthusiasm for gardening. Typically, with its high-maintenance lawn and overgrown foundation planting, the front yard doesn't enhance the house or provide useful living space for the homeowner. Yet as new properties become smaller and old ones grow shadier, the front garden may be the best place to grow vegetables or flowers, to sit outside in comfort and privacy, or even to swim or play tennis. Mary Riley Smith, a landscape designer who has often dealt with poorly planned and underused front properties, has filled this book with creative ways to make your own front garden beautiful and functional. She shows how to design paths, driveways, and parking areas and how to camouflage unattractive but necessary structures. For privacy, she describes the different virtues of fences, clipped hedges, and loose, flowing hedgerows. When it comes to planting in front of the house, the choices are surprising: instead of a lawn, you might create a colorful cottage garden, an edible landscape, a drought-tolerant meadow of regional native plants, a sea of ornamental grasses, or even a romantic orchard. All of these landscapes, and dozens more from all parts of the country, are illustrated with beautiful photographs. THE FRONT GARDEN concludes with nine case histories, including the landscape designers' plans, that will give you even more ideas for turning your front yard into a beautiful garden.
