New year, new me

Oh, how often I have said those words to myself. I love to make New Year’s resolutions because it gives me the ambition and inspiration that I need to make changes.

The towering pines on the horizon began to hide late afternoon sun. It was December 20th, one of the three shortest days of the year. While most people scurried to buy last minute gifts or squeeze in a quick grocery run for Christmas dinner, I slipped my feet into my boots and headed to the […]

Out there in the dark

It’s about 15 minutes before graying of the eastern horizon, and I’m sitting in a tree overlooking the head of a steep draw. Everything for the hunt is in place here, 25 feet up a pine. All the shuffling and adjusting is over and I turn the light off. A tiny shudder tremors up my […]

Coaching hoops from the heart

Rogue dandelions bloom in the yard as jonquils push their Kelly green shoots toward the strengthening sun. Cardinals sit high in tree tops singing to the sunshine. You almost forget it’s still winter. But the next day, we’re all huddled around the heater while frigid winds whip the bare branches and cold gray clouds cover […]

The most beautiful ornament on our tree

Our Christmas tree is a time capsule decorated with memories disguised as ornaments. I’ve got two or three from my childhood as well as the obligatory “Baby’s First Christmas” ornaments for both of my daughters and our granddaughter, and we’ll be adding another one for the newest granddaughter this year.

For a lot of growers, the cooler seasons are a time for planning and reflection and learning from the successes and mistakes of the growing season.

The gardener’s wish list

If the official start of the Christmas season is the day after Thanksgiving, then the official start of the gardening season is the day after Christmas. Or in my case, Christmas Day. Just a few days ahead of December 25th, the sun begins bathing the northern hemisphere with increasing light. Sure, the coldest days still […]

Rib-stickin’ breakfast

Remember those cold winter weekend mornings at Grandma’s house? If you were lucky, she had a wood or gas stove you could snug up against while watching Bugs and Daffy punk Elmer. You’d look out the window at the frosted yard and start planning your fun while incredible smells and sizzling sounds came from the […]
