Time Goes By…

Check out this picture I took while my husband drove us home one afternoon. It certainly won't take 1st prize for picture clarity, photography skills or rembering to stop the car before trying to get a good fall photo! But doesn't fall bring on so many changes?

Learning From Your Child…

My little girl has started 1st grade, she was so excited to be able to go full time, in person, even though they all have to wear masks.

Where to Sprout Seeds…

Maybe you have a green house maybe you don't. If you're like most of us you probably don't have a formal spot for starting seeds when there's still snow on the ground. Each year my home turns into a green house. Picture frames are moved from shelves and replaced with seed trays. Tables are set... Continue Reading →

Time to Start Seeds!…

Spring is on its way and that means for those of us that live in zone 5 (most of New York) it's time to start planting seeds! Let's start by learning the basics about a seed packet: Today I'll be planting pansy seeds as well as tomatoes(and many others). Pansy's like cooler weather and do... Continue Reading →
