I will not open with a beet pun. I will not open with a beet pun. I will not open with a beet pun. Look at those beets! Just look at ’em! I grew them. I grew the beets. I’ve been noodling around with gardening for about 13 years now, yet I’m still amazed that […]

Plants! Not to be confused with pants. Although we like pants, too. Never mind. A lot of you, and I mean A LOT OF YOU ask about our houseplants. I think it might be because we have 13 trillion, 723 billion, 294 million and a few more after that. So! I thought I’d walk you […]
Sert it and ferggert it. That’s set and it forget it, MOM. She’s like, WHAT WENT WRONG AT CHILDBIRTH? So, do you guys have a dehydrator? I’m only 1,025% obsessed with mine. Get this, we found ours about a hundred years ago at a thrift store! It was like $.06 with no dead rats in […]
This time tomorrow morning, a couple of bloggy girlfriend bloggy bloggers and I will be well on our way to a city where country stars are born every 5 minutes. A city that we thought would be chilly, allowing us to sport our new sweaters and scarfs we purchased for the trip, but instead decided […]

Surprise, surprise – we’re eating tomatoes for dinner! But what are we doing with them?
Look at that thing. What IS that? Do you even know? I heard these rather disturbing groans and moaning noises coming from the garden, so I walked out and found it giving birth to this HA-UGE orange tomato. They named it summer. Isn’t that sweet? Seriously, the garden is going to have to take it […]
