Haven't posted in a bit....

Hi all,

I haven't posted in a little while. I will put up some pix soon. Tonight I made a vegan chocolate cake with some flowers and coconut on it for my friend's birthday. I need to work on piping flowers - not easy. Also, I need to practice writing on cakes.
On the gardening front - still waiting for my sunflowers to open and all my green (lots) tomatoes to ripen. Hope we have some more sun and warmth to encourage them!
I planted corn salad, carrots, golden beets, salad mix and red lettuce back in August for the fall. Looks good! YUM!
We also have a good amount of plums from our neighbor's plum tree that hangs on our side some. Made plum crisp the other night - Nummy!

Well.......that is all for now.

Happy gardening and best baking!


  1. Oooh! I need to do some fall's not too late is it? I'm wanting to do broccoli and turnips and peas...

  2. Supposed to plant at end of August - latest usually in the beginning of September. I did just plant lettuce though a week or so ago - could probably plant that from seed. The rest I would do from starts and soon. I was interested in broccoli - if you find those or spinach starts let me know. Haven't found them yet.

  3. I have so many green tomatoes that I've been thinking of digging up some recipes for green tomato relish. I just don't think there's time to ripen them all.
    I can't wait to see your cake.
