Book Review- Becoming Bea

Becoming Bea is book four in The Courtships of Lancaster County series by Leslie Gould.  As a continuation of this developing story of Beatrice and Ben, there was not the newness I would have expected.  The prideful, argumentative nature of both of these characters continued in this book just as in the previous books of the series.  The poor decisions and the continuing immaturity finally come to a close in this final chapter of The Courtships of Lancaster County.  As a well known and experienced Amish author, Leslie Gould fell short of creativity in this book.  Although the book was not completely disagreeable, I will look forward to a new piece of work and series from her, as I think it's time for something fresh.

Heirloom Seeds and Gardening



Mike the Gardener`s Seeds of the Month Club

They say the best gardens are planned in the cold months of winter.  This is when you actually have the time to remember what worked last year, what you enjoyed eating and putting up, and what you ended up wasting or giving to the animals.

Orange Peels~"Must-Have" Tool

Someone asked me the other day to name some of my "must-have" tools for the kitchen.  At the time it seemed difficult to come up with ideas.  Then last night I remembered what I think is one of the greatest inventions of all time!
