Happy first day of Spring, no really... it is the first day of spring according to the calendar. The eight degree wind chill (when I walked down the gravel road to get the newspaper) felt more like January.
We were experiencing record highs last year this time. I'll take the colder temps, they are not confusing my garden.
Hubby asked for some of my garden books so I began to pull them off the shelf. There are more than this but he felt these would umm... suffice.
A few were inherited from his dad's garden library, a few given to us, many come from library sales, and a few were purchased with Amazon credit... like Grow Great Grub and Little House in the Suburbs. Each book provides a different perspective of gardening.

Whenever I have a lot of bananas turning ripe, I make this banana bread recipe. The recipe came from Feed Me, I'm Yours... a cookbook I used when Stephanie was a baby and toddler.
This loaf was made using the "little extra butter" option so it was rich and tasty. I can't eat but one slice and then with perhaps a salad for dinner but it is worth it. ;)
Notice the bookmarks on pages where there are recipes I want to try soon. I may make the scone recipe from Homemade this afternoon.
Now... I must get out the down coat and hat and gloves and venture outside. My friend, Sheila, e-mailed me that she has leftover stuffed cabbage and homemade bread if I'm willing to make the trek into town. She knows how much I love her stuffed cabbage. ;)
