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.

one of my very favorite summer annual plants has to be borage.  the beautiful blue flowers combined with the fuzzy white buds, which seem to attract buzzing bees, compliments my red, white and blue garden border.

i planted a whole garden pot of seeds this year, and seem to have more luck with the germination in a pot.  now is the time for me to transplant these into my garden border.  one of the great benefits of borage has to be that it self seeds. so, next year my garden border should contain a drift of blue borage.

borage is an easy plant to grow and provides a lovely addition to any herb garden.
