My son came all the way from Hawaii  to visit and I put him to work planting garlic! He does remember how to use a shovel.  We should have over 1000 cloves in the ground this year.  He remembers how to hug his Mom too.  This is all good!

Just Plain Nuts.

I heard on Fox news that the U. S. sends aid to China.  This is just plain nuts!  A toad jumped out of my dish washer this morning.   This is also just plain nuts. However, I think the toad in the dishwasher makes more sense than the U. S. sending  aid to china!

If the weather holds, we will have the tilling finished, the garlic planted, and new plastic up on the […]

I know better than to become attached to my puppies. They will all be sold and go to their new homes in the next few weeks. This is the reality of raising Great Pyrenees puppies. I try very hard NOT to have a favorite puppy. That can be a challenge. There is nothing cuter that […]

New Improved

I have been making Apple Crisp for years. This year it is” new and improved”. I added Golden Flax seeds and Walnuts to the topping mixture, about 1/2 cup of each.  The “crunch” really adds. Bob  likes Apple Crisp with vanilla ice cream on top.
