Pine straw — Mother Nature’s mulch

Hotard, Steven.jpg

I’ve notice the hot and dry weather conditions have accelerated the fall of pine needles. This seems early, but the greatest needle fall naturally occurs in September through December, leaving a bountiful treasure for gardeners to use as mulch. It is a shame that too many homeowners with pine trees in the landscape rake and bag the needles and send them to the landfill. What a waste of resource and money. These same homeowners and gardeners will pay over $6.00 for a small bale of pine straw in the spring.

It was the stuff dreams are made of.
The first game in a new conference Louisiana Tech had long desired to be a part of. A nationally-televised contest featuring some of the school’s biggest celebrities on hand for the celebration. A sea of fans clad in red cheering on the Bulldogs.
But sometimes dreams are just that — dreams. And then reality sets in.
Louisiana Tech had all of those opportunities in last Thursday’s 24-15 loss to Tulane — a game the Bulldogs somewhat stayed close in despite an offense that never really got untracked.
