This Is Why We Will Not Be Making Our Bodacious Rustic Pumpkins This Year


The last time we made our Bodacious Rustic Pumpkins was at the end of September 2021. We adore these pumpkins. We love making them. At the time, and in years prior, we sold out. We made a few additional sets to give to family and friends.

Please Stop Getting Old

10 Reasons Why I Do Not Want A Big Party For My 50th Birthday

When Lisa celebrated her last 40-something birthday, we had a party in our backyard. Lots of people. A backyard fire. Lots of scrumptious food. Music. It was a celebration that made memories.

I Miss The Bounty Of Our Old Neighborhood


I made the first batch of my homemade zucchini muffins late last month. I usually make zucchini bread and muffins well before. However. Since moving into the house, that we bought in 2020, we haven't had the haul of garden vegetables that we did in the past. From our neighbor friends and beyond.

It Was Love At First Bite


One of my favorite Summer treats is garden fresh tomatoes. Those will always hold a special place in my heart. I remember my Grampie's gardens. Bursting with fresh-grown tomatoes. After spending an afternoon harvesting them, we would enjoy tomato sandwiches for lunch with fresh cucumber slices.

Next Year? Maybe? Possibly? Could Be?


At our old home, we had (what we called) our Porch of Produce. Tilling a garden in the small backyard was not an option. Instead, we filled lots of big planter pots with soil, seeds, and plants. They did well.

A Little Goes A Long Way


For the past five months, we have been blessed with crossing paths with an incredible lady. Her name is Melissa. However. We refer to her as our favorite "Crazy Chicken Lady." Every other week, we purchase a few dozen farm-fresh eggs from her. These eggs are the best.
