This morning I got an email from Earn A Degree Online, informing me I had been once again included in Growing Green at Home: The Top 35 Organic Gardening Blogs. Here is what they had to say about my blog.
Annie’s Kitchen Garden has chronicled her journeys to foreign lands, as she studies the various produce from far away lands. Annie has also included recipes for all of her documented fresh produce.
That made me spew my morning coffee all over my monitor! Maybe my tale of a trip to the dentist in Mexico constitutes chronicling my journey to foreign lands, but really......buying a bag of sweet potatoes from a roadside stand in Aguilla, Arizona cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, be considered as studying the various produce from far away lands. Well, maybe if you're in Maine. Then possibly you'd consider Arizona to be a faraway land. Oh my, if I included recipes for all of my documented fresh produce, I'd never get out of the kitchen!
I'm afraid visitors who come to my blog via this article will be sorely disappointed!
Today I'll be planting my peppers. I woke up this morning with the realization that I had left peppers off of my planting calendar! How could that happen? Must have been a senior moment. Anyway, although I'm a few days late getting them planted, I'm hoping the bottom heat speeds up their germination. Everything, I mean everything else has already germinated, even the lobelia and parsley that I thought would take forever. The asparagus-crates-turned-nursery are both empty and waiting for the peppers and tomatoes.
I'm also going to get outside to do a bit more garden cleanup, even though my OLD body hurts from the small amount of work I did yesterday. I should have begun the gardening season with a few exercises to get in shape, but did I? Oh, no.....I can't do it the right way, I have to just jump right in and then suffer the consequences.
