Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

patio lettuce garden

this year, i decided to practice growing some vegetables and herbs on my deck.  this was my first attempt, and wanted to keep them away from the bunnies that seem to roam in my yard every evening at dusk and dawn. so far, this method has worked and i have been able to harvest basil, parsley and now mesculin lettuce.  my deck is very sunny. as long as i water these clay pots every day that it doesn't rain, i think i am going to have enough for a salad.  i have been shopping around for elevated deck gardens in the catalogs, so i am planning a larger vegetable garden for next summer. the third pot has gourmet cat grass that my coco loves so very much.  since she is an indoor cat, she really is enjoying the fresh taste of these greens.  this is the second clay pot of greens i have grown for her this summer.
