A Little Good, A Little Bad


We've had a mixed bag of "good news, bed news" when it comes to the garden in the past couple of weeks.  The good news is that we enjoyed the seasons first salad fixins...and oh what a treat they were.


While lettuce and greens in general may seem rather lowly in comparison to hyped up crops such as tomatoes, let me tell you, the difference between freshly picked and shop bought is just as awe-inspiring.  I always say that skipping the salad section of the grocery store is up there when it comes to things I look forward to each season.

Don't Save It....Use It!


Over the past couple of months, I've had this need to use things up.  In our consumerist society, I'm just as guilty as the next person of buying, buying, buying - and then letting some of those purchases sit there, sometimes for years, waiting for the "perfect moment/occasion" to use them up.

These are a few of the seed packets that I had saved over the years
as I never really had the "right spot" for them.

Not the Usual Start to the Season...


First things first – Hello, my friends.  Hope that you are all well physically and hanging in there emotionally.  I was supposed to come out of “hibernation”, so to speak, at the end of March.  But, to be honest, my writing mojo had left the building...for obvious reasons.

And here we are.  Needless to say, it’s not where I expected to be at the beginning of May 2020.  And the most unbelievable bit is that it’s almost certainly not where YOU expected to be either.  And by “you” I mean every single one of you, regardless of which city, country or continent you happen to live in.  That, to me, is mind-blowing.
