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.

Garden Update With Pictures


Sage which not only is a wonderful herb, but produces lovely purple flowers.


Onions, kale, and my beans have now been covered since either critters or  the bean beetle have started to devour the leaves. PS--chard is barely peaking through on the photo.

Carrots that were planted between the peas and obviously I need to get in there and weed.

Pole beans sprouting

 Peas are looking good and I think I will be able to pick next week.

Cabbages ( on steroids--not really)

Goliath tomato

 Flower pot

Flower box. Wish you could see this in person. It is very gorgeous if I must say so myself, and will look even better in a few weeks.


  1. Excellent pics, I like the flower box. :)

  2. Thanks Kris and the flower boxes are a piece of cake. The boxes were originally manufactured by Flower Framers by Jay and I think his ingenious flower boxes were so popular he sold the company, but I think these can be found online.

  3. Everything looks wonderful in your garden! I love the flower box!

  4. Was that chard or kale next to onions?

    1. Jenny--good catch--Kale is above the onions and below it is chard, but the chard is barley peaking through on the photo.
