I decided to start a blog about my two favorite things, gardening and food. It's mostly for me keep a record of things but maybe I can share things I know with others and vice versa.  Been wanting to do it for a while but kept chickening out. I'm doing it now for better or worse.

So far in the veggie garden we have kale, Swiss chard and green beans. Still have a bit of tilling to do before the rest. The flower planting is more or less complete. I went heavy on the petunias this year because I have good luck with them and they're very hardy. Marigolds and cosmos are also very easy to grow. We lost two rosebushes and had to replace them and we're trying peonies again even though last year's died.
