Learning Something New

Growing a garden is a lot of learning what you should not do. In the fall, I will plant the garlic in a different place. In the spring, I will change the way I plant onions. This year the harvest was better than last year, and I feel good about it. I have always seen beautiful braided onions and garlic in pictures and wanted to try it. With a little help from the internet, I did it! They aren't perfect, but I love them. I'll let them dry outside a little longer and then move them to the cool basement pantry.

Veteran's Day

It's been a while....but today is a good day to write a post.


Veteran's Day. A salute to my soldiers.....





It has been very hard over the years to watch my husband deploy in service to our country.  Now, I am watching our son prepare to do the same at West Point.  It has been very difficult...I am so proud of them.

2013 Garden

The lilacs are blooming......the side porch is beckoning....

The folk lore where we live is that sweet peas should be planted on Good Friday. My garden is never ready then. Until this year...I was ready to go! So I planted cabbage, broccoli, and sweet peas right around Ash Wednesday. Forty days too soon! I'm not quite sure what was going through my mind:)

In spite of my errors and some serious frost, or rather freezing, the plants have survived. I added a few plants a couple of weeks ago and everything looks like it is reasonably healthy. We will see...

Of all the places....

Tucker could sit in our yard, he has found his favorite spot...right in the middle of the garden beds that are under construction.
