Delma Ann

This is the Delma Ann, a crab boat in Florence, OR.  Al Pazar has been a crab fisherman on the Oregon Coast since disco was popular in 1975. He has operated the Delma Ann since big hair and acid wash jeans were popular in 1983.  The Delma Ann provides plenty of crab for the Krab Kettle, a restaurant and seafood shop he and his wife run  in Florence. How cool is that?  I provide lettuce for my wife’s salad from the garden box  I captain out back…

Spring

This is how you do creative.  I came across the creative woman Jill Weber a couple months ago and I was so inspired by Jill’s creativity and passion for gardening and obviously life.  It made me want to do several things:  1. Watch it again.  2. Go draw something. 3. Thumb thru our seed catalog and plan our garden. 4. Thank God again for so many things that really make life rich.

We make life so very complicated yet producing shallow results.  I think my life’s motto has become:  “Nothing has changed, God is still longing for someone to just walk with Him  in a garden.”  Enjoy.  I especially liked the little wheel of seed growth!

Fall Garden

Fall Garden

It’s November and our fall garden box is full and lush!  I really enjoy dinking in and around our garden boxes especially this time of year when the air is so crisp and cool and you can see your breath in the morning. (…because it’s chilly, not from the salsa last night…)  Here’s what’s going on in our boxes…

Psst, Hey Carrots!

Carrots

So you may remember back in early Spring, I got all excited about these colorful carrots we were going to harvest.  Atleast the picture on the seed packet showed them like this…. OK, maaaybe, I traded my car for a packet of seeds called  “Professor Copperfield’s Miracle Legumes” from a guy on Craigslist.  Here’s all I got :

Lesson learned.

Broccoli Royale

Broccoli

Broccoli! HUA! …Whaat is it good for?!  Absolutely noth…WAIT!  What am I, 12?  Yes, I can eat broccoli when smothered in a spicy cheese sauce all day and broccoli is good for us, it gives us so many vitamins that fights off bad stuff in our bodies from all the other junk in our processed foods.  Two things I like about Broccoli: 1.) It’s Italian. 2.) Albert R. Broccoli, is credited with bringing Ian Fleming’s James Bond to film. To him, I am grateful as I am a big James Bond fan.  Eat more broccoli. You can plant it now, as a cool weather fall crop!
