Spring cleanup

In preparation for repotting and re-homing the seedlings that I have started inside, I had to do some minor repairs to my greenhouse.  Over the winter a panel on the roof came out and blew away.  I did a seach through my yard and surrounding neighbors yards for it, but did not find it. Since […]

Holy MOLEy!

As I look out across my back yard, one sure sign of spring is apparent.  MOLES! Standing on my deck and looking out over the yard, I was wondering what the heck it was.  It sort of looks like a herd of cows got loose in part of my yard and generously provided fertilizer.  Since I knew better […]

Using spiced nuts as one solution to break my carbohydrate addition

I have been on a quest to break my addiction to carbohydrates, for health purposes, due to my fibromyalgia, but also just because an over the top carb intensive diet is not good for me.  Instead of grabbing pretzles as a snack of choice, I have been looking for snacks that taste good, have more […]

A sure sign of success

As you can see, the tomato seedlings are up and doing well.  They are getting to the point where it is time for them to be separated and repotted.  When I initially planted the seeds, I planted one type of tomato, and pepper too, per pot until they germinated and started to grow. We will […]
