Planting a fall garden is a great way to extend your growing season. Enjoy fresh vegetables when most people are stuck with canned or cardboard-tasting grocery store versions. And you’ll be proud to serve fresh vegetables at your holiday celebrations.
I have really been having a hard time the last month or so. I have been feeling lousy, for one thing. And for another thing, it seems like everything has been going wrong. Continue reading
I am so overdue on writing this post. I have been feeling pretty cruddy the last couple of weeks so I am behind on stuff. But, today is the day! This book rocks and I need to tell y’all about it.
So I met Celeste via email when I was setting up interviews on an article I was doing for a client. It took me a while to realize she was the same Celeste Longacre that writes for The Old Farmer’s Almanac. Duh! Just so happens I made the connection the same day her book arrived in the mail.
