Mankind has sought to outwit nature since the beginning of gardening.
There is something fascinating about having summer flowers in winter and enjoying fruits and vegetables out of their seasons.
Forcing plants and building greenhouses have become sophisticated arts, despite the advent of modern transportation capable of bringing us fruits, flowers and vegetables from other climes so that the seasons no longer really matter.
It's summertime, and time for the Rockwood Public Library’s 2014 summer reading program.
This is the 26th annual statewide summer reading program in Tennessee. The theme is “Fizz, Boom, Read!”
“We will be exploring all things science this summer,” said Rockwood Library Director Margaret Marrs. “These programs are designed not only to encourage the individual reading habits of older kids, but also to inspire and delight preschoolers.”
