    Happy New Year to you DG & M & M.

    You still have tomatoes? All we get in the stores these days is the watery tasteless tomatoes.

    Hope school is coming along good.

    We got about 3 inches of snow and it is like a winter wonderland here and me not too happy πŸ™‚

    Hi ISG — happy new year to you and yours! I can only wish I still had tomatoes — that photo was taken at the end of October though. I was still using them out of the garden in November. Spring can’t come quickly enough, although the winter here brings deer almost daily to dine at the bird feeders. On a one-week break from school, classes begin again Jan 7. Thanks for stopping, stay warm in all that snow! πŸ™‚

    Happy new year to you and your family (human and feline), Linda! πŸ™‚ Hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas. I tried a few times to leave a comment, but WordPress didn’t cooperate – hence the belated wishes now. Hope 2014 brings you everything good, and lots of gorgeous produce πŸ™‚ And I hope WordPress will allow this comment!

    Hi Shammi, so happy to see you and so sorry nasty wordpress was being a pita! I can’t wait for our garden stuff, just a few months now. January… then February is a short month, and March is spring! πŸ˜‰ Happy New Year! Hope it’s full of everything joyous πŸ™‚
