A journal documenting the trials and tribulations of gardening on the rocky coast of Downeast Maine. My attempt at keeping in touch with my many friends and loved ones who live all across the nation.

The One That Got Away
No matter how hard you look, there is always one green bean that hides all summer long and when you finally find it, it's a monster! It could almost have been a meal in itself.
Speaking of meals, last night we had a great one. We haven't had turkey since last Thanksgiving and I had a real yen for turkey and dressing. Of course, the turkeys in the grocery stores are prohibitively expensive right now, so instead of spending $20 for a small whole turkey, I decided to just get a couple of thighs. I put several leaves of fresh sage and a couple of onion slices under the skin, oiled, salt and pepper them and into the oven they went. An hour and 15 minutes later, they shared the plate with my fresh green beans and (shame on me), boxed dressing. Oh well, a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do! I just didn't have it in me to make my usual corn bread dressing.
Gardening and knitting fanatic! I love digging in the dirt (what little I have of it!) My zone 5 garden is located on 2 1/2 heavily wooded, rocky acres on the coast of Downeast Maine and is shared by Hubby and our two cats, Spike and Sluggo. When unable to garden, I love to knit, cook, pursue my photograpy, bake and read numerous other blogs.
