40 years of recipies and counting

In my kitchen drawer there is a large box dating back to when business stationery came in fine cardboard boxes with lids. It has been filled with a file of clippings, and more recently, printouts of recipies. Then there are a couple of special purpose file folders for things like peaches and plums (I have trees)and bread machine recipies. Otherwise, no order, and the stuff on the bottom of the box has not seen daylight lo these many years. My neighbor to the rescue! She told me to buy a 31-day expandable receipt file, and label the days with food groups, such as salads, etc. I made special labels for zucchini and tomatoes, etc, things I grow and need lots of recipies for. File is availible upon request, since I couldn't figure out how to attach one here!

The only thing more satisfying than cleaning out a junky drawer is planting new plantlets. I got the garden in this weekend, and found yellow zucchini and lots of heirloom tomato sets to go in this year. Hope always springs eternal when dealing with sets from the garden store. Now to get the hedge trimmed so there is afternoon sun!

Good for you! I am refusing to organize this weekend and gardening was out as we woke up to snow - which is all gone now. In a nutshell, I'm on strike.

Keep posting the garden pictures. I am soooo jealous.
