Rainy Day Garden Gab

Welcome to rain-apocalypse 2012 at least that is how the weather team on T.V. is treating it.   It’s  been raining here for a little over 12 hours.  Storming, wind howling, thunder booming, lightning flashing, big, cold drops of rain falling. Since we just planted the garden, this is a blessing and a curse.   Water …

Get your Can on….Candied Jalapeños and a canning link up

Once you’ve read my post, please check out Allie’s post she’s made a  vegan tomato sauce! Also, link up with us! We’d love it if you did! Two weeks ago, I was standing in the kitchen wearing latex gloves, staring at 6 pounds of jalapenos wondering what I got myself into. I’ve worked with jalapenos …

Garden Gab weeks 22 and 23….and freezer jam

So, it’s hot…Yep a shocker I know!  Last week, instead of Garden Gab on Friday I posted a whole wheat chocolate cake recipe.  I know, the cake was lovely, but it felt strange after 21 weeks of garden posts to not have one last week.  So, to correct that and make myself feel better….This week …

That’s how the nursery rhyme goes, however I was disturbed when I looked up the meaning of the rhyme. It’s about Queen Mary, torture and executions. …
