Black Thumb 2012--topsy turvy gardening update #1

Well, my gardening black thumb has already struck. Our basil plant is dead. Beyond dead. My co-gardener thinks that moldy dirt killed it. Man, can I tell you how frustrating it is to have a herb plant die before we actually got to use it in the kitchen. The mint and the parsley are still hanging on.

One the bright side, the 2012 topsy turvy tomato is doing well. Well, as in it is still alive. No tomatoes yet, but I am still hopeful.

This Moment 5.11.12

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. (From Soule this tradition so I am striving to do this as well...I need to take more time to savor and it will be such a treat to look back and remember these moments)

We're Jammin' --Strawberry Jam 2012

My family has been picking and jamming strawberries since I was a little girl. My first strawberry pick was in the scenic hills of Scotland. Our current strawberry adventures take place in the less scenic fields of Virginia Beach, but the end results are just as delicious. Fresh strawberries are just so darn tasty.
We picked a lot of berries this year. A lot. Which resulted in a lot of jam. yummy!
