How Does Your Garden Grow?

Although chances are you don’t go to bed at night wondering how my garden is doing, I thought I’d post an update anyway, if only to encourage some dirty fun in your backyard. To be honest, it’s been slow going. I had to throw out all of the zuchinni (supposedly the easiest thing to grow), [...]

I Growed It!

Lookie here, something is ready in my garden!

The radishes are among the only things that seem to be thriving. They’re pretty much coming out of the ground on their own so I pulled this one up just to see what was going on under there. Pretty, and tasty. I mean, WOW tasty. If you think [...]

Feels Like Summer

And it’s only spring. The temps are rising into the 90’s here (and I should probably be counting my blessings, knowing how the local weather goes). I am enjoying spending more time outside in the garden– since I work from home most days, it’s a way that I can break up the day. My usual [...]

Potpurri (Stuff Roundup)

When I was a kid I would watch Jeopardy all of the time and I always loved the “potpurri” category. This post is a little bit of everything so I thought the title was fitting.

First off, I hit the jackpot at this thrift/craft market right by Yarnivore. My coworker was in on her day off [...]

Another Hobby?

If you ever run into me at the yarn store, you’ll probably hear me mention all of the fun things you can do with said yarns, and then, inevitably, a customer will ask whether I weave/spin/felt, etc. My response is always “I’d love to, but I don’t need another hobby!” And yet it appears that [...]

Happy Earth Day: Raised Bed Gardening!

For my birthday last week, Paul got me a whole bunch of gardening stuff. Ever since we moved back to Texas I’ve been talking about possibly, maybe making a garden out back like the one my grandmother used to have. But you know, it’s a lot of work. And I had plenty of other excuses. [...]

Time Travelling

Yesterday, among other things, we went to the Living History House at the Museum of the Rockies.  It was their big Farm Day (the last hurrah before they close for Fall/Winter) and there were lots of old-timey demonstrations, including felting, cider-making, corn grinding, blacksmithing and leatherwork. Not to mention the bluegrass and the women quilting [...]

Simple Things

Last night I made some delicious italian panzanella from Everyday Food. It is what it looks like– cannellini beans, red onions, cucumbers, tomatoes (I substituted cherry tomatoes- which I almost always do– because they are just so good!), fresh mozzarella (another sub), olive oil, pepper, and  red wine vinegar. I added the bread and olive [...]
