    I love that you focused on trees. Would it be possible to see what you wrote up for some of them? Could you post pictures of a few pages from your book or maybe post the descriptions? I imagine a lot of time and thought went into creating your notebook and it would be wonderful to see your work. Thank you.

    In reply to: queenbee posted an update #growyourown I started my own mix of a flower garden yesterday. It has poppy seeds in it and a little of this and a little of that for flowers. the poppy seeds are from my cousins’ […] View

    One of my favorite gardens growing up was my mom’s flower bed next to our sunny deck, which featured tons of poppies– red, lavender, and white. Hers always grew as tall as the neighbor’s hollyhocks and were fun to collect seeds from for planting the following year. Your flower garden will surely be beautiful.

    I’m fond of zucchini as well. Often the most simple recipes, such as yours, are the most delicious. Thanks for sharing.

    You list a nice variety of produce. Since the instructions ask for 5 different fruits/veggies, could you add one more, please? Thank you very much (and apples are also harvested through the fall, just fyi).

    I’m a huge fan of bigleaf maples and I love that they’re native to our region. If it wouldn’t be too much trouble, could you post a photo of your neighborhood bigleaf maple, please? It would be so nice to see what it looks like and I’m sure it’s beautiful. Thank you.
