New House, new Garden!

Having recently moved to a new house, I have an entire new garden to work with.

My former residence, a townhouse, had a postage stamp sized yard.  The new place (in Keller, TX) has a good sized yard.  I do have to work around a pool, but even so I have a lot more real estate to work with.

There are two good sized areas of lawn in the back yard which show a lot of promise for conversion to some productive (and fun!) use.  I have already began the process of converting one of these using a modified form of the ‘Lasagna Gardening‘ method.

I hope to have some more updates on my progress posted soon!

Delicious Healthy Salad recipe

I threw together this unusually delicious salad last night.   I am certainly no gourmet chef, but I thought it worth sharing:)

1/2 head of red leaf lettuce, chopped

1 tomato, wedged

1/2 mango, diced

1 appled, chopped

1/4 stick of celery, chopped fine

1 clementine, pulled into wedges

It tastes great without any dressing.  The Mango and Clementine juices seemed to fulfil that role!
