Surviving the Podcast

I had so much fun this past Sunday being part of my very first podcast.  I didn’t mention it much beforehand because I was extremely nervous and absolutely sure I would sound like Woody the Woodpecker.  Thankfully, I didn’t sound too weird thanks to a great host and fellow interviewees.  Our fine host was John…

Vintage Gardening Books

Second to my addiction/weakness/vice for cookbooks is my addiction/weakness/vice for gardening books.  Vintage gardening books are prone to make my knees weak and my heart race.  If they have spidery handwriting or pressed flowers left between pages by previous owners, well, that’s grounds for being overcome with the vapors.  The down side to this love…
