Tuesday March 8th

I am behind, really behind.  However, 2 quilts down, 1 to go… well not quite…5 down, 6 to go, but I have all year to finish up the 6 since 11 in 2011 is my goal.

Onward to gardening!  Not sure how my year will go since I may be driving cross country with middle daughter in April and staying awhile since YD’s family also lives on the East Coast.

I can do a little inside gardening though:

Yes I regrow commercial green onions! 

Just stick the ends in some water and they grow.  This morning I took one and chopped it:

For the first time, I stuck it back in water.  I want to see if it will grow a second time, but I made this for breakfast:

DH called yesterday to whine about his restaurant lunch.  No, it didn’t take long for us to fall into traditional male/female roles after having “equal” household chores for most of our marriage. His was all the shopping and cooking for over 30 years!  So I am like a new cook and I am always kind of excited when something I make actually turns out, like this morning’s frittata. 

My favorites:  Batchelor buttons, Cosmos, dianthus, roses, hydrangeas and geraniums!  I am starting to like my calla lillies, now that I know how popular they are!

And Jamie, my roses have black spots too.  I hate them!

Now tonight, while watching TV with DH, I need to boot up the laptop and catch up with all the challenges I am following!

      You are hilarious Martha! Yeah 53-year-old married mother of 3, grandma of 1 finally learns to cook!

  4. First off, that’s amazing about the green onions! I didn’t know that and have been throwing away perfectly good roots!

    And second, thanks for stopping by my blog! It’s good to know you are fully recovered…but not good to know that it’ll probably take me that long to recover as well 😉

  5. Awesome tips about the onions- I didn’t know that either! And your frittata looks terrific- now that you’ve had success, I’m sure you’ll be cooking all kinds of things. 🙂

    And the black spot is so bad here that I usually purposefully wait until March (or even April!) to trim back the roses- it delays bloom, but seems to help keep the ugly spot better controlled. Ugh.

    Happy spring, anyway! 🙂
