Breaking News Sat. Jan. 1, 2011 New Year's Day!

Today's post will be shorter as I have a meeting later with my most excellent neighbors to go over our seed inventories and get ready to order any new seeds for this season's garden. Those of you out there that haven't learned some gardening skills yet, maybe that might be a good New year's resolution? Learn to garden! Also, I've added a Tip Jar to the blog for anyone so inclined. Hope everyone had a Happy New Year!
