I am so glad that you liked them! We loved the Pork Tenderloin as well and are trying the chicken/risotto this weekend. Stop by again for the weekly menu and thanks for commenting :-). Enjoy the weekend!

Please do!!!
Pretzels are so much fun to make and my little girl had a blast making different shapes out of the dough. I forgot how rewarding it is to make them myself. You should totally do it again soon! - We just went to the orchard and the basket size we picked up for the mums is the "peck" size. Hope this helps!
Thanks you, Monica, for your kind words. Motherhood is a wonderful gift and it is so fun to celebrate all of the milestones with my sweet little girl. I wish you the best :).

Jeremy, it turned out pretty well but some things (sadly) didn't survive because of the hot summer. Overall, it's coming together nicely! What kind of roses did you plant?

Thanks so much... it was a really fun party and the birthday girl seemed to enjoy it :-). I think she loved the balloons and frosting best of all though!

Did you try the recipe? I'd love to hear how you like it and if you made any changes. Let me know how it goes and I hope you love it :-). Thanks for stopping by and I hope you visit again soon.
Doesn't it look great... I cannot wait to go apple picking and then make this recipe!

Yes, this is my first garden venture and I've really enjoyed watching everything grow. My daughter especially loves going out there to check on the plants. I thought marigolds were annuals? We're in the northeast so I am not sure if they would over-winter. Do you have any tips on how to keep them alive? I think they did wonders for our garden both from a pollination standpoint and a pest control standpoint.

Shona, I'll post a pic sometime this weekend. Sadly, we lost a bit of the garden while we were away on vacation. It was just too hot here and without much water the cucumber and zucchini died. I still have peppers, tomatoes, rosemary and basil growing strong which is good. Everything is starting to ripen and tastes really yummy! I especially am looking forward to some pesto with the basil as the crop is very healthy right now. If you have any basil recipes to share, I'd love to see them.. I am always looking for new recipes. Thanks!

Great question which I don't have the exact answer to... I just eyed the baskets at our local orchard and picked ones that I thought would fit my mums. Sorry for not having more details! When I buy them this year, I will reply back with the exact size.
Thanks! Come back again for more cool finds. Have a nice weekend!

Thanks! You should see it now (actually I'll post a pic later).. it looks like a jungle but in a good way. I've already harvested a few zucchini and the peppers and cucumbers are starting to bear fruit. It's so much fun to do!

JLo... we made this last night and it was a hit! It is one of those drinks that I think would be good both hot and cold. Hope all is well!
Do you know how long you need to let it rot? Luckily I started my plants from seed so won't be planting them in the ground until they are ready (maybe in 2 weeks or so). How much time do you think I need to wait before planting? This is great.. thank you!

Good idea.. I have been putting our egg shells in our compost bin but ever thought of adding them directly to the soil. Thanks!
Toggle Commented Apr 18, 2012 on adventures with manure at Plaid + Dots
I hope so! I am a novice gardener who has relied on containers for herbs and a few tomatoes here and there so I am hoping my new raised beds will do wonders for my yields. Knowing that the manure is rich for the soil will hopefully make things work better. Any other tips from the farm? I'd love some other ideas... Thanks much!

We served it with this Chipotle Pork dish from Cooking light and the whole meal was a hit. Enjoy!

I was just thinking about these pillows and how excited I am to pull these out for spring. They really make the space more cheerful. Thanks for visiting and come back again soon! Cheers!
