First off, sorry for the long absence! But I finally feel like now I am something to share!
So, I recently discovered that I did not inherit my mother’s black thumb (thank god!) and am able to not only grow plants but also keep them alive! And, living in Chicago, I realized that maybe my shady back porch isn’t the best place to try and grow my own veggies.
I’ve been walking around and discovering lots of places to start an urban garden and I am sure that there are so many other people like me who did not get a plot at any of the open gardens. So my question is- to anyone out there in the same debacle- anyone interested in starting an urban garden? I am so interested and not sure of the next steps and would love advice from anyone!
Basically any kind of gardening advice works too! I just finished my first twitter chat #seedchat and it was so inspiring! Drop me a line with any kind of tips/advice/anything! Dress ideas or recipes or sci-fi shows to watch are all welcome, too!
Looking forward to starting this!

We made it! Biked 100 miles yesterday with my husband, Todd. So what that I am having trouble walking down the stairs and using my pinky finger on my right hand… 🙂
Sign up for it next year! Best marked ride I have ever done! And the most beautiful. I wish I had a camera strapped on my head- leaves falling and the sun peaking through the trees- just gorgeous! Plus we saw a lot of cows, horses, donkeys, turkeys, chickens and a cat that decided to join the ride! And, the first 25 miles are literally like a roller-coaster- pedal pedal pedal up up up, and then fly down hill super fast! It was pretty great! Clocked 32 mph! You can sign up for next year’s ride here. See you there next year!

Sorry for the delay- between getting a ton of great orders out I have been training for my first century cycling ride- riding 100 miles through beautiful Michigan- next Sunday! It’s the Apple Cider Century in Three Oaks, Michigan. I can’t wait for apple cider- tastes like pure fall!
