Hey May!

I can not believe that it's May already! We're knee deep into Spring gardening with 7 days of sunshine (and heat) ahead. I'm planning to plant the garden this week. I tilled the gardens once and will do so again this weekend. After hauling compost and tilling yet again, we'll be good to go. Now I just need to figure out what's going to go where this year.

Until next time.....

Garden Roundup ~ April 28

We've had a pretty wet spring so far. I'm (im)patiently waiting to till the garden. I think I'll be able to do so tomorrow. There's plenty to keep us busy until then. It's still too early to plant or transplant the summer vegetables. The spring seeds that were planted are coming up slowly but surely. It feels good to be gardening. It feels good to be dead tired and dirty. And it feels good to be blogging again.
Until next time.....

Variety Is The Spice Of Life

Happy October everyone! Weren't we just welcoming in September?
After several requests, I am now offering my signature arrow necklaces with cable chain. You can find them in this section. I have silver and bronze arrows wrapped with black wire listed separately and will be listing more. You can always buy one of the other colors and leave me a note when you check out letting me know that you'd prefer the cable chain. Don't forget to leave your desired length.
Until next time.....

New Additions To The Shop

I spent a few days last week cleaning the studio. It was long overdue, but it feels so good to have that task behind me. I do love rummaging through my supplies. There are times when I come across something that I forgot about. Those are the best surprises.
Now that there is plenty of workspace (for now), I've been spending time in there. It feels good to be sitting at my work table again. There are a few new things in the shop. Look for more to come.
Until next time.....

Happy Fall Y'all!

It's a beautiful first day of Autumn, here in middle Tennessee. 50*F when we awoke. Sunny and breezy outside now. The windows are open. The mockingbird is singing. It was a beautiful summer, but I sure am glad that Fall has arrived.
Until next time.....

Garden Roundup ~ July 18

  Some of our garlic

 Fried green tomatoes anyone?

 zukes and eggplants. These were excellent on the grill!

Pickling cucumbers and my new gadget. An OXO mandoline. How did I ever survive without it?

 Bring on the tomatoes!

 Beginning to harvest onions.

The corn is looking really promising. Shhhh! Don't tell the deer and the groundhogs.
The weather here has been Incredible, with a capital I! Cool, no humidity, light rain. Windows are open. Pants and long sleeve shirts have been used and it's July. I'm happy. The gardens are happy.
We're starting to harvest and put up food every day. Meals are planned around what's coming in that day. Those of you with gardens know how good I'm feeling.
Until next time.....
