Garden and Workshop.

So are you ready for all my good news that 
I teased you with on Monday?

Our beautiful weeping cherry tree in all it's glory!
I'm so excited to tell you that I was fortunate enough to land myself a plot in our township's new community garden.
So #8 on the 2012 TDL is in full effect.
Some of the plots are reserved for our local food bank and I hope to donate any surplus we have to that cause.
Some of the loveliness I'll be growing:
2 types of tomatoes 
(sungold cherries and some other heirloom)
Swiss Chard
Spinach (maybe)

That's what I've got so far.
If there is any room left I'd like to do a cucumber or squash.
The garden has a community asparagus, horseradish, and ruhbarb patch too.

I'll keep you up to date as things progress.

My other bit of good news is that I'll be participating in the 
30 Day Vegan Workshop over at Beauty That Moves with the lovely Heather!

We've been doing well with eating better and I've been working out almost everyday!
This is going to be a great vehicle to help take us to the next level.
Let me also say we are not and do not plan on becoming totally vegan.
But we could stand to eat less meat and dairy, and have, 
since my 10 day fast.
I always buy organic sustainable meat, fish, and dairy when I do.

I have my good friend (of the same name) Jamie to thank for both these things!
She's been hooking me up left and right.
Thanks Jamie!!!!


  1. I can't wait to do the workshop together! AND I can't wait to steal some fresh veggies from your garden. See, it all benefits me somehow :-)

    1. Yes, you will most definitely benefit but you're still the most generous person I know!
