Please watch my recent plum cooking videos as well as a guest, Lynne Dunlap, cooking lemon curd in my kitchen! Recent travel included attending the […]

But, here’s the most exciting… My channel will hit 40,000 subscribers tomorrow July 4th! I’m very […]

Almost There

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 […]

How to Salt Brine Olives This year was the first I have attempted to harvest and collect my olives. You can see the video of Erick, my garden helper, and I harvesting from my two olive trees. I didn’t get to brine for four days, and when I did, I was met with an army […]

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! As you will see in Part 3 of the series, Lori Bowling is working overtime to serve the residents of Boyd County. In addition to serving […]

Urban Garden Improvisation Urban gardening in a small space could be called “Improvisation is the name of the game,” or, “One thing leads to another.” As for most gardeners and family farmers today, gardening is not my profession. It is my passion and the fuel that feeds me, both literally and spiritually. I am an […]

Yesterday was Opposite Day

Yesterday was Opposite Day When everything is turned upside down. I arose this Wednesday and thought of Opposite Day. I recollected when my boys were little, they had a children’s book called “Opposite Day,” and I recall it being celebrated every Wednesday. Maybe that was just my family, but it was a fun way to […]

Frankly Remarkable Balancing Act

Frankly Remarkable Balancing Act

| May 14, 2018 | 2 Replies

My frankly remarkable balancing act began in late January when I got a call offering me a part in a play. I wasn’t even driving yet, after the injury I sustained on Schweitzer Mountain on Christmas Eve. In fact, I was spending days mostly just getting showered and dressed, which took forever, fed (a very generous […]

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 […]
