Flowers, herbs and veggies, oh my!

So…I bought the rest of the plants I need for my gardens in all 3 locations. This took a couple hours and it was HOT today. By the time I loaded and unloaded the 5+ flats of gorgeous, delicious fragrant annuals, herbs and veggies, it was clear a siesta was in order. After this lovely break, we had an early dinner, then I went to my community gardener friend’s house to dig up more plants because, nope, I just can’t get enough. Drove to Northwind Community Garden and as the sun set, I planted the day-lilies I had just dug. What a beautiful night! Too little time to plant what with all the plant gathering! I had hoped to at least get to the planters in the back drive at church, but lost the sun and my energy. Jim was very happy that I made us Brownie Ice Cream Sundaes since I needed something to spur me on through my evening chores: making Vegan Peanut Butter Cups for tomorrow night’s potluck, putting sheets on my bed and showering off a hot days worth of garden dirt and sunscreen. Bon soir!

Hello from Fly-over Country (the Mitten part)!

Welcome to my very first blog, my very first blog post! It’s a sunny May day here in mid-Michigan, which means I am not going to sit here and rant, howl or wax nostalgic about anything at all. I will be purchasing plants, digging in the dirt and creating gardens everywhere. Details when the sun sets. Happy day, world of friends!
