Summer's here and being back outside in the garden is seriously the best thing ever. I am happiest out there in the yard; digging, snipping, planting, and pruning. It's even better when I have something yummy to bring back indoors with me at supper time.  Right now we're enjoying loads of fresh Green and Red Leaf lettuce, baby kale, and collard greens.  The herbs, in their metal wash tub, couldn't be happier and I've been finding ways to sneak basil into everything because it's my number one favorite scent and flavor of summer...

Little tip I learned from my Aunt Barb, planting marigolds along the perimeter of the beds helps to keep slugs etc. away!  Adds a wonderful pop of color too, don't you think?



  1. What a lovely garden! My hubby put marigolds around our garden this year, too! We need to figure out a way to keep the chipmunks out. They are so cute and so destructive.

    1. Oh my gosh, I know!! Squirrels too! Wishing you the best of luck in keeping them from your precious crops this year!


I always appreciate your comments! Even if it's just to say hi!
