Halloween is behind us, and Thanksgiving is fast approaching. Many have already begun shopping and making their holiday preparations. And while this is a busy time of year, you shouldn't completely forget about the trees and shrubs that make up the "bones" of your landscape. Trees and shrubs provide structure, texture, color, and form to the landscape and are valuable long-term investments.

Readers ask about aerators, pinot gris and pinot grigio

It's that time again; time to answer some of the questions I've received from readers of this column (I heard from all three recently) and from students in my wine appreciation classes.

A man's help with my problems is more than welcome

In a moment of not perfectly clear thinking, I agreed to sit on a panel composed of several women for a television show. The idea was that we so-called "experts" would answer questions posed by guys who wanted to know about the inside thinking of a woman.

Skaggs: Dealing with deer in the landscape

Select the right pumpkin for cooking

The most popular use of pumpkins is for decoration as jack-o'-lanterns. When selecting a pumpkin for cooking, the best selection is a "pie pumpkin" or "sweet pumpkin."
