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.


Let there be grapes !

I planted my seedless concord grape vine three years ago. I knew we would not get grapes the first year. The next year I was so excited. This would be the year we get our first homegrown grapes ! The vine was spreading out and really looking great. Then it happened..... the goats got out and ate it ! NOOooooo ! So, no grapes last year either.
This year the goats are more secure at the barn, and my grape vine is loaded with baby grapes ! YAY !!! I can't wait to make the first batch of grape jam. I can taste it now, lol...

Darn the cats.

Water feature

We added a new water feature to our patio. It looks like the old one but has a pump on the top. The old feature was starting to rot and falling apart and so we bought a new one. It is one of our "guilty pleasures" because we love to sit out and enjoy the sound of the water and read---and watch the birds too.

For some reason, we decided to start our garden from seed this year. I keep filling seed trays and putting them on our 8 ft dining room table. Very little space left. Also started a ton of flower seeds. They always come up nice, then gets tricky from there. I knew it was gonna happen. The garden centers already have nice sized plants coming in. Still way to early to plant around here, so we'll see how it goes!

Just a few updates.

I want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. They mean so much to me.
Doing great after surgery. Found some blockage from old stomick surgery. Had to clean that out. Was blocking every from going through. Feel so much better.

Garden is doing great. The peas are coming up. Lettus, radish, beans and flowers. Had to switch an order with fields. Some of what we got from them did not come up. No problem sent a vouuther for the price of them. So I ordered some things I have always wanted to try.

Have been going back to class. I really love it. I have 2 sermonds to do this week. A few more test and by the end of May I hope to have my paper work in order to get my licsen.
As you can see my spelling has not gotten any better

Thanks again for being my friend and you prayers. God Bless you all..

Doing good after last surgery. So glad I got my raised beds up. Got some seeds planted before I went in. Now we have gotten over 5 inches of rain. Have to wait and see just what comes up and what I will have to replant. Not doing any thing I am not allowed to. Kathy has seen to that.. Boy she has got some great eyes. Still have times when I have to take some pain meds. But it will better
