We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

100,000 Tulips and More

Just got back from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens. If you  ever have a chance you should stop by whether in the Spring or Winter or any season. Winter is amazing because they decorate the entire zoo with Christmas lights, but in the Spring you can view the 100, 000 tulips that were planted by volunteers last Fall.

Also you may want to click here to read about the zoo's trial gardens for annuals and their picks for 2012 annuals.

Further more if you are curious about what they do with all of their poo, Marvin's Organic Gardens picks it up for composting and sale to the public. Marvin's is known as Number 1 in Number 2 according to this video

Hope you enjoy the pictures I took.
