Let's Get Dirty

When your palate pines for a purple palette on your plate

I planted purple potatoes this year, just because I could. I found them either at Park Seed or Territorial Seed, and the catalog said they were a late season potato that produced a lot and that stayed purple when you cooked them. Yes, that’s a purple baked potato from my harden, with … more

Clearance Flowers?

Did you know Lowe's had a clearance section? Me either! My best friend, who lives in Georgia, sent me these pics last night of flowers she found in the clearance section at Lowe's.  She said it was way in the back and you sort of have to hunt around for it.  It seems worth … more

The Outdoor Junkie

A Stay at the Milky Way Motel

I didn't think it was going to happen this summer, as weather scuppered one trip and running plans and busy schedules took care of most weekends. But the night after the Power of Four 22k Trail Race, which I rather surprisingly and incredibly won (!), I decided I had enough of … more

WHY IS THERE A BIRD NAMED AFTER A COW? (People, beef, climate change and grassland birds)

In my last blog, I discussed how grasslands have changed drastically in the past century and a half. I mentioned the many birds whose populations have suffered enormous declines as a result. But, as always, “it is an ill wind that does nobody good.” Winners in this change of … more
