Here’s a glimpse at what’s going on in my garden in February.
On Monday, my husband and I were on our way to pick up our youngest daughter from school when I spotted this rose painting in a curb pile. I immediately insisted that he back up so I could check it out, and I’m so glad that I did. Isn’t it pretty?
Mail is a pretty big deal in my house. Each day, when I pick the kids up at school, I ask them to guess how many freebies we’ll have in the mail. On a good day we’ll arrive home to find the mailbox stuffed to overflowing and several more things balanced on top of it. Even on a slow day, there’s usually at least one freebie tucked in with the rest of the mail.
Free-range chicken breasts run $8.95 a pound at my local butcher; All-natural, vegetarian-fed chicken breasts run $5.99 a pound at Earth Fare. I like to feed my family quality foods, but those prices are just painful to me. So what do I do? I buy anyway, but I find ways to do it at my price.
