By me sharing my knowledge with you, my hope is that you pay it forward in one of the following ways.
Do something kind for someone. Share your own skills.
 Or, if you would like to financially support the content I create it is genuinely appreciated.

Tomato Season 2022.

A cold Spring. An unfinished Hothouse. Tomato seeds that started off slowly and went down hill from there. The ground not warm enough to plant tomatoes outside during that cold Spring even if we bought large seedlings or tomato plants. Waiting for things to warm up.

Birthdays at Fairy Wren Cottage.

Michael and I decided before Liliana was born that we wanted to make sure we celebrated family birthdays together. Three things really influenced my decision. The first was hearing about Michael’s sister and brother in-law always taking the day off work to celebrate each others birthdays and their daughters birthdays. Hi Ezra if you are […]
