Garden Thyme: Pumpkin Patch

Garden Thyme: Pumpkin Patch

This is the second year I am doing pumpkins. Last year, I had the pumpkins growing in my garden but they didn’t have enough room to expand so they never produced and I think I planted them too early. This year, I have a separate area (aka the Pumpkin Patch) to grow them!

Energy Bites

Do you go to the gym in the morning? These last few weeks have been an “after-work” kind of gym experience. When I get up early enough to go before work or when I head over after work, I’m STARVING!

Garden Thyme: Citronella Mosquito Plant

Do you have a backyard, terrace, or other outdoor space? Constantly getting bitten by mosquitos? The citronella mosquito plant is great for the summer. Have you ever thought about where the “citronella” in citronella candles come from? Although the citronella mosquito plant is not a sole deterrent to mosquitoes, you can crush the leaves up and rub them on your skin for a more “natural” bug…

Colleen’s Banana Bread

Colleen’s Banana Bread

My sister made some delicious banana bread at Christmas last year, and again about a month ago. Last week, some of our bananas didn’t make it though the heat wave here in the city, so Fatima thought we should make some banana bread. So I called my sister and requested her recipe.
