When I'm not delving into historical research, I'm planning a character's demise.

Recycle Bin Gardening

No Weekend Writing Warriors/Sunday Snippet for me today folks. 

I have remodeling projects going on and must take advantage of the one day hubby is home. Plus it's the end of most of my veggies and I have piccalilli relish to make, zucchini to freeze, pickles to do, and super sweet corn to bag and freeze. So I wouldn't have time to respond on other blogs to my snippet comments and it would be rude of me not to reciprocate. I may hop around though on breaks. :)

Here are some pics of my veggies in full bloom. We put our garden in recycle bins, sort of a combo between container gardening and gardening by the square foot. Most are pulled now except all the peppers, eggplant and the zucchini is still growing. Vegetable scrapes, after processing, go to a local for their pigs. Won't those piggies be happy!

Fall crops are still in the beginning stages as some veggies love the cool weather better like leaf veggies and my brussel sprouts.

Feel free to visit the other great writers. Weekend Writing Warriors is here. The Sunday Snippet writer's on Facebook are here. See you next week!


  1. I <3 gardens! Yours looks fab! :)

  2. Beautiful garden! Those recycling ins work great. Every year we put more and more veggies in pots. Ours is driven by need for sunshine. The trees around the garden keep encroaching. We grow more flowers than veggies anyhow. :-)


Anyone can comment. You don't need to jump through hoops or be a member of anything. Nice huh?

Waiting for Harvey
4 of 5 stars
Alone, in a cabin in the woods, with a ghost. Who could ask for more in a ghost story? Harvey starts right out with a hint of foreboding in a conversation between brothers John and Erik. Already my curiosity is roused as to what happened...

I randomly downloaded this on my iPad when I hit the wrong button being a bumble fingers, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I've never read fanfic before. It was pretty good. But like many other people, it still can't compare to J. K. Row...
