Is it Time for a Move?

Do you need a change? Is it time to downsize your home? Or perhaps you need a change of scenery in a more hospitable climate. You would not be alone.

On average more than 40 million people move each year in the United States. It is estimated that 80% of those moves occur between April and September, this is referred to as peak season. During this time the demand for movers is very high, especially in June, July, and August, which tend to be the busiest months. Of course, three day weekends during these times are the most popular, such as Labor Day.

Of course there are challenges in moving during a holiday weekend. Fortunately, there are many resources available. Once you have everything sorted, packed, trucks/pods booked and driving routes planned it’s time to look up everything great about your new location.

But if you are contemplating moving for retirement or acquiring a vacation home and haven’t yet decided on a location consider Hilton Head Lakes. There’s so much to explore and enjoy here. Take the climate for example: the average daily high all year round is a wonderfully pleasant 74 degrees. In the winter the average high is 64 degrees. Imagine! While friends are shivering and scraping ice from their cares you could be enjoying your patio and a pleasant breeze.

No Room for a Vegetable Garden? Think Containers

Ah, late spring when gardeners all over the country are planning and/or planting their vegetable gardens in anticipation of the perfect tomato.

But what if you don’t have a large yard? If there isn’t enough room for even a four foot square plot or raised bed is that perfect tomato out of reach? Not at all. In fact, growing tomatoes in containers is one of the easiest yard-to-table things you can grow. Tomatoes enjoy large pots and will still need a cage for support but with good soil and sunlight that juicy, perfect beefsteak beauty can be yours.

Not that much of a tomato fan? Fear not! Peas are another great choice for early spring or even fall when the temperatures aren’t too intense. Other options include potatoes, squash, peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, and even radishes. Grow you own salad right there on your sunny patio. Don’t have a sunny patio?

April Gardening in South Carolina

While homeowners in much of the country wait for that last threat of frost to pass by before planting their window boxes, often well into May, here at Hilton Head Lakes we’re already digging in the dirt and enjoying early blooms.

What are we planting while April snows still threaten the north? We’re planting our summer bulbs: delicious dahlias, glorious gladioli, colorful cannas and luscious lilies. We’re spraying our fruit trees to prepare for the bountiful harvests to come while up north blossoms are only just beginning to open. Planters are blooming on porches and patios. Spring is a magical time in the lowcountry. But what about vegetable gardening? Surely it’s too early for that, right? Not at all. April is the perfect time to set out cantaloupe, cucumbers, melons, squash, peas and beans, and even sweet corn. While northern climates are just beginning to consider cool weather crops, we’ve already moved on to summer crops.
