Reminding YOU!

Someone needs to remind you of this. “It is easier to criticize an egg, than it is to lay one.” You know who you are. Consider yourself reminded!!!  Have a good day.

Today is the day for Praying, making chicken soup, doing the exercise video,  planting seeds under the grow lights, and admiring the beautiful snow from inside. It is so deep that the poodle will not go out until Bob  shovels him a path. The snow is way over his head. (the poodle’s not Bob’s).

Cold Weather Food

Homemade bean soup ( with four kinds of beans) and Jalapeno corn bread make a great cold weather meal. The other night, we had wind chills of minus 40 degrees. The hot soup and corn bread made it tolerable.  If the winter in Minnesota doesn’t kill you, it will make you stronger!

Winter is in full blast. Snow, ice, and high winds are fierce. No worries. I will plant more heirloom seeds today under the grow lights in the basement. Spring will come. My garden will bloom. Winter will only be a vague memory. The beauty of Spring will outlast the harshness of Winter. It always does.

Baby Chicks

Every three years, I get to order a new supply of baby chicks from Cackle Hatchery.  I have decided on Araucana chicks. They lay eggs in a wide variety of colors, pale blue, dark blue, various shades of green , and a few light brown/pink ones. Collecting their eggs never gets boring.  Each hen will […]
