Posted by admin on

Starting in September 2021 and continuing weekly ever since, my family of four (there are five of us, but Sawyer does not eat real food) has been trying and mostly loving the meals from GreenChef. I will try to share the good, the bad, and the ugly. I was not given any free product, only the coupons that come in the mail. Affiliate links are included below.  Why we tried GreenChef I’m sick of cooking and my husband is sick of take-out. Let’s keep it real.

Here’s my big list of things I want to accomplish in 2022: Remodel The Kitchen We are still on the hunt for just the right pantry solution for the side wall in the kitchen, but I think we’re getting closer.

Mid-Coast Maine – Planting Zone 6a – Early January

Posted by admin on

Last night I pulled out my bin of seeds for this year’s vegetable garden and set the onions, leeks and artichokes aside. A nice little snow storm is in the forecast for tomorrow so I think I’ll wait until then to hook up the grow lights in the basement and get the seeds planted. Now that we have a little more furniture in the house than we did last time this year, I won’t be setting up the long folding table in the family room and filling it with plant starts this year {and my husband is pretty happy about...
