Getting lots of chamomile flowers off of the plants I started from seed in the Spring. Drying them and saving them to make into tea. See how I'm doing it in this video. https://youtu.be/KOpxSbslpYU #chamomile #herbgarden #backyardgarden

Peach Delivery is a fairly new restaurant delivery service that brings restaurant lunches to businesses around the Seattle area. It recently started being offered at my office in Redmond. Check out my blog post to see what I thought of it and find out how it works.

They just started offering Peach lunch delivery at my office in Redmond. I had never heard of it before. After looking the company up, I discovered it launched in the summer of 2014, started by a few ex-Amazon engineers. They...

I thought I would introduce my chickens and say a bit about each of them and their personalities. They are all unique in their own ways. #backyardchickens
I currently have 9 hens in my flock of chickens and each one of them has their own personality so I wanted to introduce them and provide a little bit of info about each one. I have four different breeds. The buff orpington an...

This year is my first real backyard garden. Lots of planning was involved. Check out my blog post to see what I'll be up to this year.
#backyardgarden #organicgarden  
This is my first year planning and planting a garden that is big enough to actually require detailed planning. I gotta say it's kind of fun. My parents always had a garden in the backyard but the majority of it was filled wit...

Adventures at the 2015 Northwest Flower & Garden Show in Seattle last month.
It's been a few years since we've been to the annual Northwest Flower and Garden Show at the Convention Center in Seattle and decided we were due for a visit. We ended up parking on the street with a 2 hour limit which meant ...

Kale and tomatoes weren't the only thing I went overboard with varieties.  In addition to 14 varieties of tomatoes and 6 varieties of kale but I also have growing in my garden 7 varieties of lettuces. Check them out on my blog. #organicgardening #backyardgarden #growsomethinggreen  
In addition to planting a bunch of tomato and kale varieties, I've also planted quite a few lettuces (7 of them) and they are just about ready to harvest. There are a few more varieties I will be starting soon to replace thes...

I've been posting some gardening videos up on youtube. Latest one is how I repot my tomato plants and the fertilizer test I'm doing on them.

We had a great time at Gregarious Cellars Wine Markers dinner. #foodporn #wine #Olympus #OMD
Our favorite local winery put on a wine maker's dinner at their home/winery atop High Rock in Monroe. There's not a wine of theirs that I haven't liked. We joined four other couples for a four course meal paired with a variet...

I went a little tomato crazy this year and started 14 different varieties, 3 of each. For the most part, only one of each will be going into the garden and the rest will be sold/traded. Check my blog post to see what 14 varieties are going in the garden this year.
Going from a teenie garden to a big one has made me go a little overboard on planting stuff. Even after adding two additional beds to the six I already had, it seems I don't have enough room for all I want to plant. I used to...

My 25 week old girls I raised from day old chicks have begun laying eggs last week. Both of my marans, Mary and Molly, started laying Monday and Ali, the blue egg layer, started on Wednesday. Ari, my other easter egger,  has yet to lay an egg but should be starting any day now. #backyardeggs #backyardchickens #easteregger #marans
