It's been nine long months, and none so long as the last one, but Little Miss Hannah Elizabeth has finally arrived! I wrote about her impending birth a few months back; she's the firstborn of our younger daughter, Jenna, and is our first grandchild.
I sort of think I blew through Dayton in the 70s when I was drumming in a rock band. But I know I didn't stop to enjoy the gardens. All that changed last weekend when I visited two jewels in the MetroParks crown.
Apple season is still in full swing, so I bought more apples this past week, and my fridge is loaded with them. If you have an overabundance of apples like me, here are some great apple recipes to get you started. My apple farmer said they could stay good until March if I keep them in the fridge. Fresh apples until March? Count me in. No more exported apples for us in the winter- hopefully. I will be buying more next week to add to my stash. I think I need a second fridge.
It’s a no-brainer for organic sustainability gardeners but this graphic has made it so simple and clear for the non-gardening folks among us. Treating the soil, soil food web, air, oceans and animals as one living being to be cared for and nourished is an idea that our agronomy forebearers had practiced for centuries – a practice that we wandered away from in the earlier part of the last century.

There are many things I could tell you, my younger self, that would save you some of the struggles you will endure while trying to learn to garden. But you know what, I am not going to share a single one. Each and every step is an important one…and I wouldn’t want you to miss a thing.
