Hey there, hot stuff! How’s your summer starting out? We are hanging in there so far, and I say “so far” because it’s going to be a LONG one.

So, I’m pretty proud of my garden right now! It’s the best it’s ever been and I’m feeling all smart and stuff.  Like, I might actually have the hang of this whole growing food to eat business.  Heck, I even have a mystery plant growing out of my compost pile, and that’s like, boss, right?

Hey there! How’s it going? I’m getting ready for my upcoming trips and really looking forward to some much needed time away. In the meantime, here is what our garden is doing right now: Out of the four tomato transplants I planted last month (check out February’s garden here), I’ve only got three left.  Something […]
