2012 Review ~ Garden, Food and Pups!

OMG has it been almost a year since I sat down to blog???  We didn't do to much in the garden this year, why you might ask, I'm thinking it's cause I've been feeling better and have been hitting the gym since March.  This means I'm tired, TIRED all the time....I was hoping it would get better but I'm still tired.  Overall I feel much better, but the waking at 5am is kicking my butt by 8pm, LOL.

Here is the 2012 Spring Garden.  We added irrigation this year.

For some reason I have been all about cooking this year!  We have had some scrumptious meals!  Here's a few samples.....

Let's see, what else have I gotten into this year...oh yeah The Egg Place attended a local event for folks selling locally grown/made products.  Here's our table at the Currituck Grown Event
