warm thoughts

I am not much of a winter person. I enjoy the down time. sleeping in. reading. staying warm. but i miss my gardens. i miss fresh veggies. i miss warmth. and i miss wearing high heels. so here are some photos of what i am thinking about to help keep me warm


Focus Fair December 2011

All in all focus fair was a great success this year. Lots of fabulous customer, amazingly creative vendors showcasing their wares, and a wonderful atmosphere. thanks to the spill, our supporter, and my fellow co-organizers!

Sweet peppers setting fruit
peppers & basil blooming against a backdrop of one of our first snows here in eastern ON
 i love having the smell (& taste!) of basil, rosemary, and lavender

 There was a gorgeous full moon rising from the east last week. loving the view out of my new office window... and my pot of greens growing wonderfully. ahh fresh cilantro, kale, and lots of different lettuces..

a few more new (to my collection) varieties

 Opalka. My pantry shelves are lined with jars of sauce made from this delicious & prolific paste tomato. Originated in Poland circa 1900. Glad that I added it to my collection! 
Sweet Angora. Maybe you like your tomatoes red, but prefer them small & sweet? This little beauty grows great in small spaces, and pots, and produces perfect bite size cherry tomatoes all season long! 

black sea man tomato

i have been waiting to make this package design for a long time . . . . 

More new packs

peach paste picks
