Goodbye 2010

Today is a day for articulating deliberateness, full of gusto and intention. I love new calendars, new lists, hope, promise and anticipation.

What used to be: I love Christmas music, movie soundtracks, new releases, and most of all “Soul Cake” by Sting.

A tomato cage Christmas

While staging the garage for the next growing season, I spied the tomato cage in a new way. The cone lended itself for a holiday repurpose. Gathering bits of garland and silk poinsettas, this charlie brown Christmas tree has given me a little joy in the corner of the porch. A simple plastic pot and some floral foam anchor the new "tree" and a leftover brick protects it from being blown away. Lighting the way to celebrate the season from a gardening point of view. We can all do…

Through a glass, darkly

Is there anywhere to recycle the glass parts of a sliding glass door?  We recently replaced ours with French doors and don’t want to just throw them away.  I contacted RecycleForce, but they said they can’t accept them nor do they know of anyone that can, so I’m hoping you [...]

Sarah
