Garden update and Springfield MO Jan-Feb 2015

Jan-Feb 2015

Totes adorbs!

Cherry trees in bloom here at the end of February.

Some of the garden is doing great!  We've been eating romaine lettuce, chard and peas

love fresh peas!!

But the other garden box is not thriving.  The cauliflower shot up...and went to seed.  So I pulled that out and put in more lettuce since that has been growing well.

See that pile of chard-from the garden!  And the cilantro, and the lemons!

Which I turned into Green Soup, from the Love Soup book by Anna Thomas.  I often get in a rut and make the same thing over and over, but with all the chard I will have to make this again!

Last week we saw James in Gotham and this week he is on the cover of his alumni magazine (we get it because the previous owner is an alumni-random!!).  Where will we see you next week James?

Visited Springfield MO to see family and we took a short trip to Wilson's Creek National Park.    It is a Civil War battlefield site and the park is perfectly set up.  

A one way path takes you past all the sites.  In the summer it would be perfect to bike through....but in the winter it was great to be able to drive through.

We didn't even have to get out of the car.

Just get the guide and read the relevant parts :)

Also-we had a great seafood lunch!


  1. Hi Sue! Looks like you had a great time. Hope your dad is doing well, say HI to him for us!

  2. The garden looks great! I love how leafy green the veggies are. It just goes to show how well you're taking care of them. Anyway, looks like spring has been welcomed warmly. Thanks for sharing that, Susan! I hope to see more updates like that this year. All the best to you! :)
