Almost There! I made 17 videos in October and 14 in November, with only the help of my sound editor. Contrast that in the years of Late Bloomer Show, with 20 episodes per year. I’m clocking 60 hours a week between editing, traveling, gardening and social media to bring you up to date on all […]

Kentucky Humility and Grace As I work through footage from my recent trip, I am struck by Kentucky Humility and Grace. I should add that Kentuckians are hard workers!

Tonight it hit me, two days is not enough. What was I thinking, scheduling only an evening and two days with my mother? I hadn’t seen her since September, mainly because I’ve been recovering from a broken arm for five months. But, I didn’t want to be gone more than a week or so, after […]

Plant Flowers, Attract Beneficial Insects

Plant flowers, attract beneficial insects Some new gardeners don’t realize the role beneficial insects play in the garden, nor, the necessity of planting flowers to attract them for a vegetable garden.

Sunday I made Braised Chard Southern Style. I bought Charlotte Chard seeds Gina from Open Circle Seeds at the National Heirloom Expo last September. I planted them in a small planter, and had gorgeous leaves in need of eating. The fog had rolled in and I had a hankering for some Southern comfort food. I hope […]

I Can’t Do Dishes, But I Can Edit

| January 29, 2018 | Reply

At least, I can edit. I can’t do dishes, but I can edit. Of all the various things I initially thought I wouldn’t be able to do with a broken right arm, edit videos was at the top of the list. I wondered, for the first ten days, most of which were spent in acute […]
