I have been busy and haven't had much time to start a new garden blog. It seems like I am always doing something with the kids and I know it will only get worse as they get older. Between music lessons, swim lessons, golf lessons, other sports or just having friends over or going over friends. And of course my time on the golf course. :)My garden was just ok this year. My cucumbers died early. I got about 100 from my 10 plants, but that isn't nearly as many as ...

Here are a few pictures of this year's gardens. I have the same area for potatoes and the other garden is a bit different. It has the usual staples of tomato, peppers, cucumbers and onion.

I actually lost my tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers to a late freeze/frost on May 10th. My potatoes are d...

I thought I would share pictures of a few of my gardens, especially the vegetable gardens since I got nice comments about my vegetables last summer. I will update the pictures as the season moves along and the plants produce.

I was in another blog when we got talking about suet cakes. In the past I have made my own suet cakes, but would get discouraged when the cakes would be gone in a day or two. With the ones you buy at the store they could last a couple of weeks or longer. Don't get me wrong I enjoy feeding the birds, but it was just seeing my work disappear so fast. Anyway, someone asked if I had a recipe. I figured why not start a blog and see what others come up with, especial...
