It sure has warmed up the past few days, it's 81 degrees right now in Marietta Georgia ! I am loving the weather, and watching my arugula, collards and kale reach for the sky! Hope it doesn't stay 81 too long, though, i'd hate to have them go to seed before I can eat any! Ya'll have a wonderful weekend! I'll be digging up the yard getting ready for the plant sale and move! deb

It was too gorgeous a day in Marietta, GA to stay in the house, no matter I had a ton of things to do inside as well! Got a head start on planting some herb seeds in the greenhouse! Planted some sweet basil, lime basil, large leaf basil, then some flowers, too ...strawberry fields gomphrena and cyprus vines & morning glories....even rooted some rosemary cuttings...ok enough for one day! It is, afterall, only FEBRUARY! Temps in the greenhouse have been "tropical" the past few days so hopefully the basil will be up in a few days, as usual! NEVERMIND it's supposed to snow on Tuesday....LOL! Balmy today, freezing tomorrow...you never know in Georgia! :-) Everyone have a great day!

Just checking in.....we had a good freeze the other night and it zapped the impatiens, oh well, it was time i suppose. I picked some salad greens this evening and had them for dinner. Arugula and baby greens, mixed. I love Arugula, it's my new favorite salad green!!! Picked up some more pecans, shelled some....got an offer from another neighbor to come pick up pecans, she doesn't want them :-) think i will be in her yard come Sat. afternoon! I also planted some more garlic bulbs as they came in the mail today. They had very small sprouts on them so i decided what the heck, go outside and plant them, then you don't have to worry about it anymore! So i did. Hope everyone is staying warm. Take care and God Bless!
