The Week of August 4, 2014 The Leader Page 7 me.your By Dorothy Rosby I haven't planted an actual gar- den since my 4-H days. It's not be- cause I don't like vegetables; it's because I don't like work. Butthis year, I got ambi- tious and planted a handful of rad- ish seeds in a couple of giant pots on my deck. And yes, I realize that, by most people's standards, a handful of radish seeds doesn" t qualify as "am- bitious." But honestly, if I were to put a real garden in my yard, I may as well put a neon sign beside it: "'Deer Buffet! Open 24 hours." The deer spend more time in my yard than I do. I see them out there, chomping on my grass, watching me out of the comers of their eyes. I'll bet they're thinking, '~l'oo bad she's not a gardener. This would taste ways to ,nthly (StatePoin0 Regardless of in- come, everyone is looking for ways to save money. From improving your home's energy efficiency to savvy shopping, you can cut back on your day-to-day expenses and monthly bills, alike. The discount experts at Dollar General are sharing some money saving tips to help reduce your monthly bills: Utility costs One of the top 10 monthly ex- penses for a family is utility costs. You may be able to lower your electric bills by frequently chang- ing your air conditioning and heat- ing system's air filters. A dirty filter may cause your unit to work harder to heat your home in the winter and cool it in the summer. A new HV/AC unit can be expen- sive, but a new filter can cost as little as a dollar. By changing fil- ters on a regular basis, you can help to keep your unit free from pollu- tion and debris and perform better overall. Another way you can save on utility costs is to use LED light bulbs. A LED light bulb typically uses less energy than transitional incandescent light bulbs. Plus, over the life of a LED bulb, it may save over $130 in energy costs. Health care Preventive health care can save you time off from work and doctor visit copays. Keep vitamins, min- erals, hand soap, disinfected wipes and disinfect sprays on hand to help prevent colds or flu. Remem- ber to also use preventive medi- cines during allergy seasons. Disinfecting wipes make it easy to clean commonly-touched house- hold items, such as door knobs, telephones, refrigerator door handles and TV remotes. With dis- infectant sprays, you can help pro- tect your family from germs and freshen up your home. Digital coupons Coupons can save money every day, but clipping them can be time consuming and, all too often, they are forgotten at home. Utilize digi- tal coupon programs to avoid the hassle. For example, Dollar Gen- eral has a new Digital Coupon Pro- gram in which customers can sign up online or at check-out in stores, and then load relevant coupons to their profile for everything from groceries and cleaning supplies to seasonal items. Digital coupons are then automatically applied when eligible items are purchased. Monthly expenses can often add up, but these simple tips may help you save on the items you pur- chase frequently.

We've even had bucks loung- ing under our deck on hot days, but to my knowledge, none of them has ever ventured up the stairs. So I can't blame them that I've had no radishes worth eating out of my little garden. And I haven't, though the deer might disagree. What I have had are some really large tops on some very tiny bulbs. My rad- ishes look like little weightlifters wearing red Speedos. According to my good friend Google, there are three possible explanations for my radishes being all talk and no action: Too much shade, seeding too thickly, or too much nitrogen in our soil. Shade is not a problem where I have my radishes. Nitrogen may or may not be, though if there's too much ni- trogen in my soil, I don't know how it got there, so I'm hard- pressed to get it out. It is possible that I planted my radishes too thickly, though. Rad- ish seeds are tiny. It's easy to get carried away when you're dream- ing of bowls of sliced radishes sprinkled with salt. And I do dream of that. Some people fantasize about travel to exotic locations. Some people fantasize about George Clooney. I fantasize about veggies fresh from the garden -- radishes. But alas, I do not. and eatingthem in exotic locations That's where you come in. It with George Clooney. pays to have friends in the great And it's hard for me to thin gardenoflife.
