this is the place to share what you grow in the garden. How you grow it. What you do with your harvest.
The best produce is what you grow.I have had a garden for years. So if you grow a garden this is the place for you from old pro to just starting.
Lets talk abought what we grow and how we use what we grow.

Pillow cases

I had to share a picture of one of the pillow cases a friend sent to me today. Lillian and I have been pen pals for over 30 years. We both love post cards and collect them. Well, I had written her and told her about our hummingbirds that stayed around here all winter and how much we enjoyed them. Today in the mail we received two lovely pillow cases with the flowers and hummingbird on them. What a special gift!

Nature says......

spring is coming!!! Picking up the mail yesterday afternoon, there were HUGE flocks of geese were flying over head! Flock after flock, all squawking and honking, so beautiful to watch.

Jerusalem Artichokes?

I had a nice patch at our old house years ago. Can you get them in catalogs now? I would love to start another patch! THANKS!

Spring can't be to far off.

Seeing these daffodils popping up made me feel good and maybe spring isn't so far off. We are even getting some sun today and I see there is some new growth on the garlic that I planted in the fall. The weeds are also coming up thick so they didn't get killed off with all our snow and cold weather.

FIRST robin of the year!!!!

was sighted a few blocks north of us!!! i'm so excited!

Menard's has a portable greenhouse for sale in the ad this week....trying to decide if it's worth the effort? i'm not really good at starting seeds; but i could maybe get some tomato plants going early, and move some house plants outside earlier........what do you think......anyone have one? it's just basically shelves with a plastic tent over it.

In the Garden

"The kiss of the sun for pardon, The song of the birds for mirth, One is nearer God's heart in a garden Than anywhere else on earth." ~ Dorothy Frances Gurney
