We are serious about the garden this year. Ted is on board with my idea of a Victory Garden and is helping make my vision a reality.

I am enjoying cooking from scratch so much during this shutdown. Cooking is one of my favorite past times; I find it relaxing, and I especially like vintage recipes from the 40s and 50s.
