What's Growin' On: 4/15/06

Realization Of The Day:
Sitting inside one's greenhouse during a rainstorm has a wonderfully soothing effect - even if it does mean that all of your big transplanting plans for the day have been scrapped. And the once dry laundry on the clothesline is now soaked. That's okay. Just focus on the lulling sounds of the raindrops washing all those little thoughts away. And besides, we really need the rain.


  1. Oh my!! I'm trying not to turn pea green with envy. OK, I just took the envy and turned it into happiness that you have a greenhouse. Hey, it works! :):):)

  2. Oooh... I'd never leave that wonderful greenhouse you have! I enjoyed being in our barn/garden shed when the rain came through today. It was nice, but could be just a bit warmer. That tree stump or log looks like a great place for mint.

  3. I miss sleeping in a house with a tin roof during a gentle rain. If I ever move back to the country, it will be a tin roof for me. I'm with you, as much as I got done today, I would have preferred rain. I have emptied all four of my rain barrels.

  4. I just found your site and am mightily impressed! Beautiful pictures, great recipes and thoughtful writing. I'm happy to have found you.

    Happy Easter.


March 2013 update: My apologies for the inconvenience - I know word verification is a pain - but I've had to turn it on to help stop the ridiculous number of anonymous spam comments I've been getting every day. Thanks for your understanding.

Welcome to! Thanks so much for taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.

Your feedback is greatly appreciated, and I especially love to hear about what's going on in your own garden. I know, too, that other readers also delight in reading about your garden successes, failures, helpful tips, and lessons learned. Feel free to leave comments on older posts!

I try my best to answer all questions, but sometimes it takes me a few days to get to them. And sometimes, I'm sorry to say, they fall through the cracks, and for that I sincerely apologize.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope you enjoy your visits to my kitchen garden!
