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.

Garlic Is In the Dirt

I finally got the garlic planted yesterday.  This is the first time for garlic in the garden and we shall see what happens.

The meyer lemon tree has 11 huge lemons that are yellow with still a touch of green. So they are not ready to be picked yet. I need ideas for what to do with the lemons.

For the most part, the garden is pretty well cleaned up so it will be easy to start planting in the spring. I still have lettuce, kale and beets in one of the raised beds.

A First- Basil

I have had a couple of cuttings of basil sitting in water for about 3 weeks in the kitchen. This evening it dawned on me that it has been staying green and so I pulled it out of the water. To my surprise, it has roots. This is a first and let's see how long this keeps up. Amazing.
