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.

Happy 4th of July

Just wanted to share our Uncle Sam with you on the 4th. He withstood the big wind storm last week. He was spun around and his hat needed to be nailed back on since it was slightly askew. Obviously we still need to work on that hat a bit because we did not get it fixed completely. That was some storm with winds at over 60 miles an hour, but he made it through.

Also a sneak preview of the blueberry nectarine pie I made yesterday to celebrate the 4th. We tried it last night and it is delicious.


  1. Happy fourth to you, that pie looks tasty!

  2. Boy that pie is great! Hope you had a nice holiday!

  3. Not only does your pie look delicious, your use of stars for the top crust is darling. I'm going to steal that idea 4th of July or not! Thank you.

  4. Love the stars!! Looking forward to reading your post - is it Tuesday yet?!
