I love life!

Hi, I am Jo and this is my blog about my life. Here you will find entries on cooking, gardening, food safety and the interesting things happening in my search for an inexpensive and healthy way of living. My home is located in North Florida and I am relearning how to take care of myself at almost 50. This is the deep South so my garden and season may be a bit different than yours. I look forward to seeing what you have to say as time passes. Read on and have a beautiful day!

The Garden Giveth.....


The garden is rocking and rolling just as I am getting ready to leave again for yet another training class.

Today I picked a pound of cherries, a large lime and yet another squash.

Seriously, swimming in Italian Serpentine Squash.

They are an heirloom that does exceedingly well in this area. Mine are currently being ravaged by crazy winds from Hurricane Sandy but we have already picked roughly 18 lbs.

The hubby took one to work today that was almost 4 feet long!
Apparently, everyone was suitably impressed- goodness knows what the jokes were.

Year to date we have gardened our way to nearly 26 lbs. of produce with plenty more to come!

Dear friends in the neighborhood, should errant squash show up on your front stoop I know not where it came from!!!

Hope your day is as lovely as mine!


  1. I don't know if it was me or you but your pictures didn't show on this blogpost. Just little squares with a red "x". I'll try to look later.

    Sounds like you're doing well. Hugs...

  2. Hey Ilene-
    They look ok on my end. It could be that they are from my phone. I don't know. Let me know if they don't load next time.


Your comments are always appreciated and I love to hear what you think. Especially my overseas reader! Have a great day!
