In the garden

Gardening gear for the talented and not-so-talented


Jenny Coon Peterson
Let’s tally: In the three years I’ve attempted to garden/control/plead with my backyard, I have killed: one weeping mulberry; two pine trees; three bushes of indeterminate origin; and hundreds of annuals.

Fall into fitness

Staying fit among falling leaves outdoors can be done on foot, wheels or rocks.

Since the sweltering summer heat has made its exit, so should indoor workouts. Outdoor exercise makes a great boredom-busting option to heat up any fitness routine.

Midwest movies

‘How to’ see free flicks outdoors this summer.

Midwest City, home to Hollywood’s brightest stars!

Well, every Sunday night through Aug. 12, that is. Thanks to the Midwest City Parks and Recreation Department, the community now has Sunset Cinema, a free, outdoor movie series to call its own, beginning 20 minutes after the sun slowly dips below the horizon, like a lover waving goodbye.

While the series began last night with The Muppets, plenty of other titles await your blankets and lawn chairs at Charles J. Johnson Central Park Town Center, 7209 S.E. 29th.

• June 10, Puss in Boots
• June 17, Top Gun
• June 24, How to Train Your Dragon
• July 1, Despicable Me
• July 8, Megamind
• July 15, Madagascar
• July 22, Cars
• July 29, Secretariat
• Aug. 5, Gnomeo & Juliet
• Aug. 12, Grease

Fun fact: Two of those selections star America’s most famous Scientologists. For more information, call 739-1293 or visit —Rod Lott
