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 Grands are Grand!
Ashton and Kaiya love watching Noggin, but I think they really liked helping Grandma Giddy in the kitchen!
We've been having the best time with the grandkids! Yesterday was once again a bit too cold and windy to get out and plant our mini garden, but Ashton and Kaiya helped me prep for supper. Ashton pared the cucumbers, I sliced them and Kaiya counted the slices as she put them into the bowl so we could make cucumber salad. We also cut up a big bowl of mixed, fresh veggies to go with our grilled pork tenderloin for a yummy supper later on.
Grammie got a big hug from Ashton after helping with dinner prep. He was a real trooper. The poster on the fridge is advertising Brian's band's gig on April 13th.
Of course, we couldn't help but tell a few tales about his Daddy. Ashton was very surprised to learn that Grandma was Daddy's mother! Daddy Brian is an up and coming musician in Nashville. His band is Cowboy Fabulous and you can catch a few tunes at their website www.cowboyfabulous.com.
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.
