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.

some of the best shade plants in my garden have to be ferns.  i have several types of ferns that provide a splendid backdrop to flowering plants which are placed at the front of my garden.  since the ferns grow tall and wide, i have positioned them at the back of my shade garden.  my favorite ferns are the cinnamon fern and the ostrich fern.

at different times of the day, these ferns have dappled sunlight through them, which gives the garden great color.  the ferns provide nice movement when there is a summer breeze and even during rainfall.
