My hubby & I both love to cook, and I have a few recipes I would LOVE to share with everyone. We usually create vegetarian, gluten free meals, as we are both allergic to gluten, and don't eat a whole lot of meat.
I am also starting my first compost project! So I am sure I will have questions for the members here!
Thanks Jennifer the garden is my passion a labor of love, I retired two years ago and always had a dream of a big garden. Well this was the year, the garden was planted down at the bottom of a hill almost in the woods. My son in law took down four tree's so the sun could shine in, he tilled the ground twice. We started planting March 17th the potato's three different kinds, Russet's white and the red ones. We have had very warm weather here in North East Georgia since April. I planted two huge industrial size trays of seedling in the house. I started moving some out in April like the jack beans, they need 150 days for growing. They have gowned over 6 feet tall and have huge pods more then 12 inches long and full, have to wait for the vine to die before I can pick the pods. We have already eaten the watermelon, cantaloupe and some of the blueberries. Most of the blueberries were frozen, we have canned green beans, potato's and tomato's. The sweet potato's are not ready yet and more green beans were planted along with 5 more squash plants. These were planted when we dug up the potato's. The corn and the squash really didn't produce very much due to the squash bore and smut and worms in the corn. But all in all it has been a really good garden I have really enjoyed working in the garden and have learned so much this year. I'm going to plant some Fall vegetables but have to wait until September really still too hot here up in the 90's again today. Thanks again Jennifer I have more pictures if you need any more. Ellen

Thanks Jennifer! I look forward to starting this new "adventure" in life called blogging and becoming more computer savvy at this. This is the perfect place for me to start and I will most definitely start posting and commenting soon :)
Thanks for the warm welcome Jennifer! Great music choice :) And that tart sounds amazing! I'd love the recipe for that if you'd like to share! I just visited Chicago for the first time last month - what a great city!
And clam shacks: The Clam Box in Ipswich is still my fav!
Yea absolutely you can put them in the "Hey I grew that" photo album. We grow Microgreens year 'round in our house on a south facing wall. They are soooo delicious and we put them in everything from sandwiches to soups to smoothie's. Microgreens have about 50% more nutritional value in them too because of how small they are and how many you get in one serving. Bonus is that my "weeder" in training loves them too. At least for now :) I'm working on getting some stuff put into this site and my Blog that I am still working on too, so when I get more photos I will put them in the appropriate places too, but always feel free to help me out in that department too! Thanks Jennifer
Oh - and the orchard transformation is in the planning stages, but will begin very soon! I'm researching small space tips and tricks like 4-to-a-hole tree planting and other neat ways to maximize yield per square foot while I build the soil, so hopefully I'll be able to share some info.
Hey Jennifer! Sorry it's taken me a week or so to respond, but thank you for the warm welcome! I'm sure I'll be communicating with the group when I get some time to myself with a computer (the corporate overlords currently own most of my access time, and they have been keeping me way too busy lately...), I'll also try to channel a few words through Shannon Z. when I can...
Thanks so much for the warm welcome! I would absolutely LOVE to write up a how-to on tinctures - they are my favorite, most miraculous things. I don't know what the process for writing a guest post is, but please let me know! I am so excited to learn from all the folks here and finally start utilizing my living space the way I'd like to :)
I had to look up Ana Mendieta - wow! Very powerful. My photo is of my youngest son and me - well, our shadows, anyway. It was taken a year ago when the ground was dry and the weather was droughty. This year it's way more green. I'm between cameras at the moment, so you'll just have to take my word:).
