Think you know all there is to know about Daylight Saving Time？ We’ve debunked some myths surrounding this annual event.
Myth： Daylight Saving Time (DST) was established to benefit farmers.pillow covers farmhouse
Fact： When DST was first proposed， many farmers actually opposed and lobbied against it. Farming is largely dependent on daylight hours， not clocks， so they found it disruptive.
The United States implemented Daylight Saving Time in 1918 as a way to conserve energy during World War 1.
Myth： Everyone observes DST.
Fact： Actuallypersonalized housewarming gifts， Arizona and Hawaii don’t observe DST. And while most of North America and Europe？observe Daylight Saving Time， most of？Africa and？Asia do not.
Myth： Daylight Saving Time has been the same since its U.S. beginnings.
Fact： DST was repealed in 1919 and re-established during WWII. After the war， states were free to choose whether or not they would observe it.
With some states choosing to observe DST and others not， it complicated transportation schedules. In 1966 Congress enacted the Uniform Time Act， mandating that all states observing DST begin and end it on the same date each year to avoid confusion.
Myth： Daylight Saving Time saves lot of money on energy usage.
Truth： Some studies say it saves a minimal amount， others say we actually spend a little more money on energy. Instead of keeping lights on later are we just turning them on earlier？

Ohmygoodness! I am so excited to be visiting here at the Polka Dot Chair. I sort of feel like Melissa and I go “WAAAAY BACK.” We don’t…Unless you’re counting on blog years, and then?

Inspired by Jaime’s beautiful garden and childhood memories of eating sun-ripened heirloom tomatoes straight from the vine, we have started planning our own “backyard farm.” This will be a major experiment for us. Will it survive the Texas heat? Will my children pluck all of the seedlings out of the dirt? Will the critters come and carry away my bounty? We are learning as we go with the help of our (more garden experienced) friends Drew and Brookes, the interweb and hopefully you, oh wise gardening Prudent Mamas.This weekend the men-folk build two 4×8′ raised beds. This is how they did it…Supplies for 1 – 4’x8′ raised bed.
