Potting up plants – what does that even mean?

Good Sunday morning!!! I’ve been busy already today potting up tomatoes and eggplant. But what exactly does potting up mean? When you start seeds in a smaller seed tray, the plants can only get so big and stay happy for a short time. Just as kids grow and need bigger shoes, plants grow and need … Read More

Testing recipes to make the perfect bread or cookie

Before I even think about offering a loaf of bread or a cookie, I want to make sure it is the best. When I first started thinking about selling homemade sourdough bread, I was making a full rye loaf that was inconsistent and didn’t stay fresh. Not good. So, I found a new recipe. I … Read More

A short peek at what’s growing on Feb. 21.

There are only 30 days until the last frost here in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. 30 days!!! That’s exciting. I am ready for some warmer weather, growing tomatoes, blooming flowers and bees.

Fun News! I am now taking custom cake orders. I’ve always loved baking cakes and usually only got to do it for birthdays, but now, I’m ready to bake for you! Baking has always been something I love and turn to when I’m stressed. I got into baking when I was about 8 years old. … Read More

Am I starting a baking business? Maybe…

Almost everyone dreams of someday being their own boss and becoming a successful entrepreneur. A small, teeny part of that dream for me, might be coming true. Maybe. Just yesterday, I put out a note into the Facebook universe to see if anyone in the Myrtle Beach area would like some to buy some homemade … Read More

Dreaming, and planning, for spring

Let me set the scene for you for most gardeners in the northern hemisphere in January. If you live anywhere not in zone 9 or 10, January is quiet time in the garden. You, of course, can plant kale, collards, cabbage, carrots and other crops under a cover that don’t mind the cold weather, frost … Read More

Gardening: A History

My first memory of gardens goes way, way back. My great-grandma had a beautiful flower garden in her backyard. I remember running through, stopping to smell the flowers, and then heading over to my friend’s house for some red hot candies. My second memory of gardens is also a long-ago memory. My grandma in Wyoming … Read More
