Home & Family page coverage ranges from how individuals or agencies deal with challenges of day-to-day life - to social concerns needing urgent attention. Those stories appear Mondays and Thursdays. Tuesday's gardening stories include practical instructions from garden editor Peter Tonge, as well as Ask the Gardener by Doc and Katy Abraham.
Food pages, often featuring stories by the Monitor's food editor, Phyllis Hanes, run on Wednesdays.
Fridays the page tends to highlight home or community design issues. Here you'll usually find a report from our home design editor Marilyn Hoffman.
