This is my third, and most successful season of growing beets. Beets are a cool weather root vegetable that seems to do really well for me early fall and all the way through spring. I do cover my garden beds in the coldest part of the winter. This year my beets made it all the way through the winter. I originally planted my seeds in a container and was only going to grow them there. I threw a pretty generous amount of seeds down, most of which took, and I hate to waste a good start by pulling and trashing it. So as I was thinning the container I decided to transplant all the others into my other garden boxes. And for the most part they all survived! Thus giving me a pretty hardy beet harvest.

Radish Mama Brunches

Brunch is always a Good Idea

So I recently started a monthly brunch for foodies and bloggers. As adults, and women, it can be so challenging to make friends. Genuine friendships that last. I have finally figured out the trick. You have to start with commonalities, then hook ’em with good cooking, laughter, and an open door policy. And that is exactly what we have created with these brunches. And by we, I mean two of my new foodie gal pals, Alana and Becca. Just a couple of other foodies I met through  social media, and am now real life friends with them.

These photos are an accurate representation of the work that goes into these brunches, hosted by me, but executed by all of us. No one lady stands around. Read more
