As many of you know, we experienced a flooded basement this spring. This necessitates a change in the drainage so it doesn't happen while we're at it, we're taking apart the front walk,…Continue

Gardening is my second love, after quiltmaking. The two are SO different! Gardening is lots of hard work; quiltmaking is pure pleasure. And I'm perfectly fine with taking six months off from the…Continue

hi kathy. yes our plates do seem to over flow don't they? lollol..but would we have it any other way? truely? at a quilt group session with local quilters yesterday i was asked how much time i have at home for sewing/quilting etc ..esp in summer when pruning, watering fruit trees. maintaining water lines and then a few minutes in the flowers or the vegies [my main love :) ] i said not much...little to none. but busy is what makes life alive and enjoyable. time will be just takes a little more effort sometimes.

good luck with your new longarm business...yes ...that is quite a change from hand quilting!!! be sure to keep us up to pics...close ups...and don't forget to wash those happy garden hands before you quilt...lollollol

My friend has a greenhouse in his backyard.  Even thought the weather is getting colder in PA now, the greenhouse is so much fun to play in.   We're growing everything from herbs to veges.  Such a sense of satisfaction! It's a nice break to take from crafts.

Hi Jan, I just join the "Gardening Group" the other day so my reply is a little late.  I have to agree with you.  I love gardening but it is a lot of hard work!  I live in NH so I only have about 2 1/2 to 2 months of nice weather to play outside.  So it seems when the spring/summer comes my hubby and I work so hard on the garden to enjoy the colors and all the other fine things that comes with it.  I love your photos of your garden.  Hopefuly with my hubby's help I will get some up soon.

Hello. I am joining the gardening group because I do not have a green thumb but truly do love flowers, etc. I hope I will be able to get some help in this area from those more experienced.

I agree--gardening is my second love.  We recently bought a summer cabin and there's a perfect spot for a summer perennial garden but I can't get it started so that it will look I want it to!  This year I will do it!
