But, like with every other plant, there is something that can attack it.  In my case it’s the apple cedar rust.

    A Tip For The Freshman In College

    Over the years, my husband has noticed the freshmen college students not always take advantage of all the deals they can receive.  He sees them line up outside the bookstore paying marked up prices for books and supplies.  He gets it.  If no one has explained to them that there are other options, then of course they will spend all their money at the bookstore hoping they can at least score a used textbook.  So here’s my tip.  Save your money and Rent your textbooks! We’ve tried buying books from various online sites that are deeply discounted only for them to arrive late–weeks after his class began!!–or it would be…
