I’ve always loved carrots. Some years are better than others concerning the growing of them. I am loathe to thin anything.

Here it is heading into actual winter and I have yet to get my bulbs into dirt. I do have to give myself a bit of credit, however, since I was much...

I spent some time last week thinking about things in my life for which I am grateful. Certainly there is health, family, shelter, food and friends.

It’s finally happened — the reality of approaching winter. Three nights in a row last week dipped below freezing.

I am the queen of justification. My latest is that I am leaving the cutting back of the perennial beds until the dead of winter.

I am happy to be back on the Vineyard. Thank you all for your kind words regarding the loss of my father.
