FRESH START STORIES, because everyone needs one from time to time.
What better way to start your own fresh start than by sprucing up your garden? Here’s my tip to boost your flowers, vegetables, succulents, or even houseplants, to their lushest growing season ever.
Besides water, the correct amount of sunlight is crucial to nurturing growing things, so I am giving away a SUNCALC probe that will take the guesswork out of what you can plant, and where.
With the high cost of groceries, like me you might be inspired to begin a vegetable garden. In FRESH START SUMMER, the main character, Grace, enjoys gardening, and then bikes around the CherryPath to see what’s growing in Cherryvale, where neighbors care, gardeners share, and God allows do-overs.
Winner of the 2011 San Diego Christian Writer’s Guild “Nancy Bayless Excellence in Writing” Award
Named one of Real Simple.com’s Top 21 Great Summer Books, and a finalist in the 2011 Grace Awards.
Praise for FRESH START SUMMER – “Lovable–and some not-so-lovable–characters, a delightful setting, and a humorous voice all worked together to captivate in Beverly Nault’s Fresh Start Summer… Indulge yourself in a little hometown nostalgia, where friends close ranks to help and protect their neighbors. Novel Rocket and I recommend it as athoroughly good read.” Ane Mulligan, Novel Rocket (from Amazon review)
So, if you have a pesky spot where the petunias pout or the wisterias whine, you can know if the problem stems from too much or not enough sun.

From Amazon’s description – It accurately measures the amount of accumulated light that falls on a gardener’s specific location of their property, providing you with the ability to match a plant’s light requirements (full sun, partial sun,etc.) with the actual light conditions as measured by SunCalc. All gardeners need to do is place SunCalc at the desired location, turn it on and 12 hours later return to read the results. Full Sun, Partial Sun, Partial Shade or Full Shade. A $24.00 value!
