I came home from our Southern Belle Statler Retreat on Monday, to find one of the the greenhouse beds full of fresh spinach plus garlic chives just outside the door. they were the beginning of a perfect salad!
I worked outside yesterday, clearing and weeding some beds. I planted French filet beans in the greenhouse and Dick transplanted some veggie starts into larger pots. Sun is shining, birds are busy, and things are starting to wake up in my garden. Look at this beautiful asparagus. I can't wait until we have bunches and bunches every day. Maybe there will be enough for Easter dinner...
Anita has a long background rooted in traditional handwork, and quiltmaking, which she still enjoys.
But more often, these days, you'll find her digitizing patterns for the Statler Stitcher and other computerized longarm quilting machines. Her summer days are spent in the garden and she loves finding new ways to prepare good veggie-based meals.
