It sounded so weird…and I even looked it up in the dictionary…CHIT…TO CHIT…CHITTING…nothing!!! {that made gardening sense} Whatever.  My gardening books say you should “chit“ potatoes before planting… which simply means to stand them upright in a warm and dark place with the […]

GARDEN GATE DREAMING

HEY GARDENISTAS…IT’S OFFICIALLY SPRING! Yes…I’m shouting…from the treetops. I’ve been waiting a long time for this day! Woohoo! With Spring Fever hitting me, I’m dreaming of garden gates. What?!?

LAST WEEK WITH THE GIRLS

LAST WEEK WITH THE GIRLS

What a week it has been with these girls.  They sucked me in with their soft clucks and pretty eggs…and I let them get away with way too much.
