How cute are these! I have about 45 seedlings growing in various types of herbs, onions and tomatoes. This shot features my fino, sweet, genovese & opal basil, marjoram and a little peek at cippolinni onions all growing in my Aerogarden seed starting kit.
I have to say the Aerogarden has been a wonderful tool in helping me to plan and implement my garden. This year I did a digital layout of my landscape and it really helped me to get a good idea of how many plants and types of plants I can actually use in such a tight space. The vertical garden should double my gardening ability and will add a lovely layer of softness to the large concrete retaining wall that is in my backyard.
I hope everyone is having a lovely spring and enjoying time with family for those of us that have kids on spring break...we are heading to Boise for a day trip and hitting up PizzalChik for some pizza and do a little exploring of the northeastern part of our fine state of Oregon on our way to Boise. Happy Spring!

So I am researching candied jalepenios...a recipe I highly recommend... my whole family is now highly addicted...and I find on the Foodie with Family website a recipe for Bacon Jam. Bacon Jam! What on earth! So I keep searching and the recipe keeps getting better and better and the reviews are making me more and more curious...and hungry! So bacon finally goes on sale and I buy 5lbs and get to cooking...after torturing my family with its amazing smell we sat down to hamburgers off the grill and ramped up with the following amazing recipe, with a few Cayuse Cowgirl modifications -please enjoy!
