Out of the Mouths of Babes & Seafood Buffets

Background: I've been starting seeds for many years, my daughter-in-law has been enthusiastically enjoying her own seed starting and enjoying chatting about the process with me. A few weeks ago I had given her several Sweet Pea Pods full of seeds....she babysits two other littles, one day as an activity, she gave them the pods …

Growing Pains….Visitors….& the “In Crowd”

Good morning on this lovely, delicious Sunday morning. It might be rainy and a bit breezy, but it's a good day. Mostly because so many of our chores are done, we don't have to be outside, and we are still relaxing and snuggled into bed. Lazy, lazy, lazy! I haven't made up my mind yet …

Miracles….Small Projects…& Getting My Way

Happy soggy, gusty Monday morning friends! And the first day of February to boot! Time sure slips by quick when there’s so much to do! I haven’t put any seeds in dirt yet, but there’s been lots of planning! I finished the craft room-a bit of a small miracle really! The quilt as you go …

Diagnosis……Undercurrents…..Poppies… & Promises

Greetings on this chilly Wednesday morning, we have 35 degrees currently with light wind—the wind storm that was predicted has yet to show itself yet, it's 8 hours overdue as of yet.   I'm okay with that – I piled a bunch of limbs from the recent tree trimming in the yard, I would be okay …

Breaking Even…..2,100 Seedlings….Making Friends & Getting Tired….

Happy Halloween! I trust things are not scary nor frightening in your part of this wonderful place we call Earth.  There's the full moon, the upcoming election, and the impending doom of a possible second shut down – what could possibly go wrong? You will have to forgive me, I'm a bit cynical today….I've had …

Perennial Garden….Duhh Moments….& Working Smarter

Greetings, I hope all is well with you. I'm not sure that I've gone into detail about my perennial garden. We have a bit of space near the milk house, there's a concrete apron that comes off of it and just beyond that there's a bit of ground, not much, but enough to stick a …

Empty Greenhouse = Full Fields

I'm not sure how it happened - but it did - my field is full! I didn't get overwhelmed and want to cry this year....I think with working from home helped a bit, commuting to work (which isn't a long commute by comparison to people living in Seattle)! I was able to do most myself, …
