I mentioned in an earlier post that I was going to compile a list of my favorite books about gardening and botany. This is quite a diverse list. Some of these books are on the history of gardening. Some are scientific. Some are practical guides on keeping a garden. Some are philosophical ruminations on gardening … Continue reading Delightfully nerdy books on gardening and botany
This may be our most Southern concoction yet (well, at least since alligator jambalaya last week). We started slow-cooking pulled pork last night at bedtime.
