Beat the Heat with Fall Gardening

by Jeana Teeter -  In Timbergrove Manor and across Houston, we are sweltering in the summer heat.  As native Houstonians and longtime residents know, we need to hunker down and expect a few more months of scorching temperatures.  There have been many Halloweens in our collective memories spent in shorts and flip flops. So while there may sometimes be a small twinge of jealousy this...

Green Bin Disposal

by Sharon Balke Aren’t the green recycling cans great?  They holdso much and there is no worry of material getting wet if it rains or blowing away if it’s windy.  I hope that Timbergrove has at least an 80% participation rate. I have found a place that will accept the old recycling bins.  It is the city’s facility at 9003 N. Main, four miles one-way...
