I’m Getting a Greenhouse!
I have met many new gardening friends since we moved to the country, and I visited some very nice greenhouses. I am thrilled to report that I am getting my own!
After doing quite a bit of research, I decided on the Monticello kit from Riverstone Industries. First we put in the foundation.
Next we put stones inside the foundation, then attached the base and started erecting the walls.
With college students from Sam Houston State University helping us, the work has gone quickly. We’ve got three sides up!
Until next time,

We put in two large vegetable gardens this year. I had no idea how much fun it would be to go out and pick dinner. Very cool. Our okra plants have been very prolific, as have our pepper plants. Tomatoes have been good as well, but those are nearing the end. We had a good crop of sweet potatoes and onions too.
With the okra bounty, my husband asked me to make up a recipe for Vegetarian Gumbo. I did and it is awesome. We had it fried many times as well. We have used the jalapenos in homemade Salsa, which is so good and fresh that you may never go back to salsa in a jar. The tomatoes were fabulous. My mother-in-law has been eating those for dessert!
The sweet potatoes have gone in to Sweet Potato Stew and Baked Sweet Potato Slices. We had yellow squash earlier, which we cooked a variety of ways, from frying to Skillet Squash and Onions to Squash Casserole.
We are getting new things now. Pumpkins are ripening, plus watermelons are amazing. I can’t wait to see what we come up with for these!

My sister-in-law bought a cookbook at the Airing of the Quilts in Huntsville, Texas. It was put out by the Texas Thyme Unit of the Herb Society of America. As I thumbed through it, I noticed the TTU met on the fourth Wednesday of every month at the Wynne Home in Huntsville. I was finally in town and made it for the meeting this past month and was delighted to meet a terrific group of women who are dedicated to herbs—and more. Most of them are Master Gardeners!
The Herb Society of America (HSA) is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that focuses on educating its members and the public on the cultivation of herbs and the study of their history and uses, both past and present.
The HSA is subdivided into districts and units. I happened to hook up with the Texas Thyme Unit just as the District Gathering is about to be held right here in Huntsville. Very exciting!
Membership is open to anyone interested in herbs or any business concerned with growing, processing or selling herbs and herb-related products. Individuals may join as a member at large or may choose to become active in a local unit. If you are interested, go to this link to get more information or find a Unit near you.
