Welcome 2014

2014, what do you have for us?  

I took the Christmas season off from my office and all it's piles of work waiting for me.  It feels great to come back refreshed and have a renewed feeling that the piles mean progress not just work.  The cold weather also keeps me focused on the now well sorted to do piles that will soon be marked as finished.  Christmas was fantastic for me this year.  It was filled with family, memories, traditions, and friends.  I truly am blessed to have all of them in our...

Let me try again

When I wrote the unsaved blog yesterday I was feeling that time has been flying by too quickly.  I can't believe that the harvest finally finished and that we are in preparation mode for the snow.  SNOW something we have had twice already.  HEAT something we didn't have a whole lot of this summer.  MOISTURE something I thought we would never get rid of.

Until next time take care,
Judy

Off to the tropics

Posted by Judy Kraushaar on Saturday, February 23, 2013
As I have always stated, I look forward to this time of year when I get to head to my tropical vacation.  I have started up the grow shed and I have had to afjust to working in the 28+ greenhouse. I planted the petunias, gazanias, violas, strawberries, dusty miller, some tomatoes, and others I can't spell.  I planted them on Tuesday this week after a winter getaway with my siblings, and our parents. Which by the way was fantastic. Thanks mom and dad. We went fishing, snowmobiling, hot tubbing...
