Seed catalogs are stacked next to my chair in the living room and I make lists and try to imagine
what the coming gardening season will bring. We have had a terrible time the last couple of years here in our little corner of the Garden State. Neighbors down the block behind us planted shade trees a few years ago and they now shade our garden. :-(
Ground hogs, bunnies and various other "neighbors" have been pilfering what does grow in the meager sunshine.But last season I did manage to finally get a luffa to grow. I will post pics soon...I am so behind.

Memorial Day is about honoring all those men and women who have died in all wars.
We have a few picnics to attend and we will be having some fun right here in our own backyard as well. We will also take a moment to remember those who gave their lives, not just for our freedoms and rights as Americans, but for the rights and freedoms of citizens all over the world.
I hope you will all take just a moment to remember all those men and women who have given their all for all those back at home.

Today I am writing to share information about a very special documentary and to ask your help in spreading the word about this important film. In an effort to support and fight against childhood hunger, Food Network in a partnership with Share Our Strength will air a special 1-hour documentary titled HUNGER HITS HOME on April 14th at 8pm/7c. The documentary offers a first-hand look at the crisis of childhood hunger in America through the eyes of the parents, children, activists, educators and politicians on the front lines of the battle. The program takes us to the heart of the matter with a focus on families from New York to Texas who struggle with hunger and the community leaders who are taking direct action to fight it.
Join me, and watch the documentary on April 14th , host a viewing event with friends/family/colleagues, using the specially prepared viewing guide to spark discussion and action in your local community. http://nokidhungry.teamdigital.com/No_Kid_Hungry_viewer_guide.pdf
I also invite you to post, tweet, pin and email your network about this upcoming screening – all it takes is a click of a button from the documentary home page: www.foodnetwork.com/hungry
As someone who went to bed hungry as a child, I ask you to help me end childhood hunger in America.
- More than 16 million kids in America live in households that struggle to put food on the table. That’s 1 out of 5 kids.
- There were also over 16.4 million children in America living in poverty in 2010. That’s almost 1 million more than in 2009.
- 9.8 million kids get free or reduced-price school breakfast on an average school day, more than ever before…but 10.5 million eligible kids go without.
- Only 1 in 7 kids who get free and reduced-priced school lunches receive summer meals.
- Almost 45 million Americans used SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly food stamps) during 2011. Nearly 75 percent of these are in families with children and more than a quarter are in households with seniors or people with disabilities.

We stayed in for the rest of the day,watching movies on Netflix and eating
Croque Monsieur and homemade New England Clam Chowder.
Snuggled under blankets keeping warm, taking turns picking our favorite movies.
How did you spend your snow day? Didn't have snow? How was the weather in your little corner of the world? I must admit, I had a pile of seed catalogs tucked next to me to flip thru as we hung out.
I am excited for spring..big dreams of big changes here..how about you?
