Catching up

…a little. Thank goodness I’m not one of those highly organized, incredibly inspired, prolific bloggers with a tight agenda for every day of the week/month/year.  You know the type: if-it’s-Wednesday-it-must-be-wordless, or wooden, or whatever!  Actually – I would love, love, love to be one of those bloggers.  But I’ve come to realize it’s probably just […]

Sow what?

Its the time of year when a gal’s thoughts turn toward SEED! For some it’s shoes… are you listening, dear daughter?  Others can’t resist the latest bestseller or glossy magazine.  I suppose there are those out there who indulge in jewels, real estate and travel.  I don’t know them.  Thankfully for me – and my […]

microgreens

Tiny, tender, tangy…
