Autumn is such a wonderful time of the year.
I love the array of colors that press up against the blue sky, the dried stalks of corn in the fields and the farm stands filled with pumpkins.
It is pumpkin time once again! Yes, I love to cook with pumpkin in so many ways. Of course the pie, then the pumpkin soup and then there is this...the hot pumpkin drink.
Four concrete blocks is all it takes to make it!. Costs under $10!
The stove funnels all its heat up under the bottom of the pan. Fueled by small sticks, twigs and leaves. cooks great.

I love to paint and love the words "low cost." No matter what the size of your budget, you can do some pretty amazing transformations with just the cost of a gallon of paint.
Two years ago, my husband and I slowly began transforming a neglected southern brick home, into a cozy mountain, place of peace.
Whether you are doing a renovation like us, or just bored with the current look, you can get amazing results with a simple coat of paint...and you won't have to charge up the credit cards.
So let me show you what we have done so far....
Come on over for dinner! We are having cattails.
Cattails- These plants that line the water’s edge were a staple food in the diet of many Native American tribes. Nearly every piece of a cattail is edible. The brown cattail portion can be harvested in early summer and eaten like corn on the cob.
Boil leaves like spinach, and the white part of the stem base can be eaten raw or boiled. Roots or rhizomes offer a crunch. Munch them raw or boil them. Hmmmmmm yummy...
Let's eat some beautiful and edible Nasturtiums in a salad.Yes, as you can see they are not only pretty but also have a great flavor and a bit sweet and peppery.
I am surprised with the delightful presentation and good taste, that more people don't know just how good they are. What an eye-catching display they make. Try some!
Step #1... begin with the simple stuff anyone can do.
Why are you buying that old thing?
This I hear from my husband each
time we stop at a yard sale on the
local "trash to treasures" events.
Trash to someone is my

I am so excited to share this cobbler recipe, and why OF COURSE you must used Georgia peaches!
When we head down the I-75 Interstate in July, we just have to take a detour and buy a bushel of fresh Georgia peaches.
The first recipe that gets pulled out of the recipe box is the one for peach cobbler. So read on...
The simple things in life, are often the things that bring us the most pleasure. Hubby and I love to sit on the back porch with a refreshing cold drink and just observe nature. Simple life is a blessing.
I am sure that like myself, you have had this happen also. We hate to waste food and throw money down the drain. Did you know that almost 20 pounds of food every month for each average American goes unused? Most of this is wasted just sitting in the kitchen waiting for us to eat. So let me give you a few simple tips...
You can do this!
Before Spring has sprung or in the Fall when all has gone dormant, you can prepare your blueberry patch!
Blueberries require little space and are very easy to care for.
So here are a few things you need to do and then you can anxiously wait for spring.
Oh my, these are the hardest thing for me to stop eating. Being gluten free, this is a test of my will power. And I can't help myself but break my diet and eat a biscuit!

So bake some up and enjoy!
Once upon a time there was this 5'3" woman who could unload and carry numerous 50 pound bags of horse feed into the barn with ease. She could hop up onto the truck and begin throwing off sweet-smelling bales of hay with no sweat. Ahhhh memories. Those were the 10 hour days of work away from home, plus another 4 hours tending barn, family and house chores.
Yes, I can honestly say I miss that Wonder Woman.
I need to plan. I make a list, prioritize and organize.
When it comes to gardening, my brain starts to concentrate on this years garden. What to grow, seed list, money allocated, where to improve, what seeds will I be starting indoors, all these things need to be considered. All this planning will save time and money, and lots of running around at the last minute.
Are you holding your "heirloom" seeds in your hand? Why not?
You haven't a minute to lose.
It is finally time to plant!
Here in north Georgia, the leaves are bursting, the ground is turned, the garden plan is made and the seeds in hand.
