Breakfast of Champions

(cooked) crab rolls

Eating leftover sushi today from Mitsuwa.
My first time there and loved it.
My niece flew to Istanbul yesterday 
and we swung by Mitsuwa on the way to the airport.  
We’ll have to go back when I pick her up in few weeks.
Betting you’ll see some pics of several items I purchased there.

it's back

I love it when a plant makes a surprise appearance.
It's always a crap shoot if a pansy comes back in the spring.
Pansies and violets, don't you just love them...

In an Eggshell

Zinnia Seedling
Zinnia's tend to be very sensitive to transplanting.
To protect the roots from shock I typically grow the in peat pots.
This year I thought I'd experiment a bit
and try it in a egg shell.
I'm curious if it will out grow it's shell
before it makes it to the garden.
We shall see....

The Garden Journal - PUBLISHED!

I’ve taken a bit of a break from blogging
to prepare The Garden Journal for publication. 
It's a paperback version
and a great deal as a result!
I’m thrilled to say it is now available on Amazon
for purchase. 
It’s also eligible for “super saver shipping”
so if you have another book in mind
you can use this to meet the super saver minimum.
Hope you like it!

Found this great quote in MuddCakes store.
Can't believe it's been such a long time since my last post.
I've been busy and plan to share a few new things with you soon.
Hope you are well and enjoying your spring!
