An avid gardener, I enjoy rural-living, gardening, family, golf, billiards, technology, dogs, and writing, and I write about all of them.
First this year! About 1/10 of the tomato seeds I started on the weekend have sprouted. #gardenchat #seedchat
Who had pie? We had pecan, cherry/blueberry, white chocolate cheese, apple, and pumpkin! #gardenchat
Look who has been lounging in my dad's yard for the past few hours. So adorable. (Their mom is here too.)
May have been the most gorgeous roses I've ever seen of any color. A huge, ancient bush along the street.
Back porch with 3/5 of the side rails installed. And beer.
At the end of the day yesterday, the new porch was useable, but it needed hand rails. Started on those today...
Nearly finished porch will make the entrance into my dad's house way safer than it was for the past 52 years.
Remember last week's obligatory crocus photo? Same crocuses a week later! #gardenchat #gardening
The annual crocus photo... cuz I hate being the only one NOT to post one! #gardenchat
Cooking a Velveeta and home-canned chili sauce omelette in Mom's kitchen more or less the way Mom used to.
In broad daylight, deer graze in a yard within the City of Ithaca. 6 deer often snack on my dad's yew hedge.
First pineapple prepped; 9 to go. First took a while cuz it was hard to choose a movie to watch while I'm working.
Workspace cleared & prepped. Canning 10 pineapples. Way tastier than commercially-canned! #foodie #gardenchat
Scored 10 pineapples for $1 apiece at Wengers. I gots me some canning to do!
17 pound neck pumpkin (very similar to butternut squash) I harvested yesterday. Lots of pumpkin pies! #gardenchat
Nutmeg takes charge of the front yard from her post on the sofa in front of the picture window. #gardenchat
Nearly 4 gals of heirloom tomatoes of various colors about to become sauce. Canned it this afternoon. #gardenchat
Using nearly 4 gallons of white tomatoes, I'm about to make and can white tomato sauce. #gardenchat #canning
Nutmeg spent time with a Yard Bird before it climbed into a shipping crate & headed to its new home. #gardenchat
