    I'm happy to have stumbled upon your page as well as your blog. I want to try the pickled egg recipe you've shared as well as a few others, if you don't mind.

    I have a super small back yard on a corner lot with big plans to make it into a vegetable and fruit producing piece of property however, my husband's having a hard time with my plans. He's a city boy from Van Nuys, CA and I'm the country girl from the northern end who now reside in So Oregon and love it!

    With your blog, you've given me the inspiration to redesign our property and add more trellis loving plants. Unfortunately, there are many things I cannot grow in our area and at some point in time, my Meyers Lemon will be too big to wheel in and out of my house when the seasons change but until then......

    Thanks for the lift in my spirits. Happy homemaking and gardening to you.
