I don’t know if you remember my advise about planting Kale for your fall garden. Anyways, our kale has been growing well and yesterday it was time to harvest some of it. My daughter came home from school and she picked the kale and made kale chips with me. If didn’t grow kale in your garden this fall, you can get it in your local farmers market.Add a comment
Living in the city is great, no doubt about it; however, our family needs to reconnect with nature for at least a couple of weeks a year to enjoy the re-energizing effects of country living. One way we get revitalized is by going camping!Add a comment

Last summer my family went camping in Northern Ontario to Pukaskwa National Park. It was a far away destination from Toronto; a 14 hour drive and that is only one way. We enjoyed the road trip through Ontario to Puskawa and especially the stop at Agawa Rock Pictographs, a half kilometer mini scenic hike. It was so neat to see pictographs up close.
It is late spring and summer is on its way, it might be time to put your plants and flowers in the ground.
You don’t have to have a big backyard be a gardener; it can be on your balcony or in a small backyard in pots and containers. In our household we have planted seeds in early spring. It was fun to watch them grow and our daughter was thrilled when she saw the first sprouts break the soil.
She was fascinated seeing how fast sugar peas and cucumbers grow. We already have transplanted them outside in containers and pots. If you did not seed this year, go to your local garden center and buy some seedlings for your garden.
I, along with my trusty sidekick Marty, lived outside during the summers when we were kids. How else could we single handedly save the world no less than 472 times? From the first signs of trouble when we were eight, until I moved with my family to Oregon three years later, it was obvious to us that our town had somehow attracted the highest density of nefarious villains and paranormal beings in the world. In our first week as a team, Marty and I broke up a Russian spy ring, vanquished a coven of vampires that lived behind the drive-in movie theater, and killed a gelatinous blob that lived in an irrigation ditch.Add a comment
Our school has a bake sale tomorrow, and I’m making some fairy cupcakes for the sale. Hopefully they will be success for both fairies and parents. I’m using edible flowers as décor on lemon cupcakes. In this recipe I’m using pansies but nasturtiums and violets will also work.Add a comment
