Garden, Vegfest, and Strawberries

  Garden update: One of my first blog entries was about wood sorrel.  I love the dark and light contrasting colors of the purple shamrock variety.  I found it again at the stand so I picked up two the other day.   I also picked up a red bell pepper plant today to replace the one…

Memorial Day 2018

On Memorial Day, I think about my grandfather.  He had 8 siblings, grew up on a farm and walked to school without shoes.  He fought in WW2 and had a near death experience.  If he hadn’t survived, I wouldn’t exist today.  He was always my hero, and not only because of what happened to him. …

Strawberry Smoothie Bowl

I have been enjoying strawberry nice cream lately and just wanted to share this wonderful picture!  I used bananas, strawberries, cashew milk, vegan chocolate, and hempseeds.  I’m so excited to go pick fresh homegrown strawberries soon.  As much as I can carry!  Ha ha!  I’m going to freeze them, but I know they won’t last…

Herb Garden

  I used to plant my herbs in the ground but I find that they grow better and seem much happier in pots on my deck. 🙂 ❤

New England Aster

Back in May, I picked up two plants at Hawk Mountain Sanctuary when they were having their native plants sale. I brought home New England Aster and Pearly Everlasting. I love the names of native plants! By September, The New England Aster was full of flowers! I first saw this wildflower while on a walk…
