Beard of the Day and Gardening Update (Hee hee..that's a weird combination!)

Happy Friday! Time for Beard of the Day. Here's Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who has an extremely masculine scruffy beard, with the just the right amount of salt and pepper. He also has those super intense puppy dog eyes that are hard to resist.

Now, you're probably wondering how I'm going to segue into the gardening section. Well, here I go.....

Just imagine you're diligently working on your herb garden, when Jeffrey Dean Morgan suddenly appears, wearing faded blue jeans, a tight T-shirt and a gardening tool belt. He gazes at you with those gorgeous hazel eyes and says, "Excuse me, ma'am, do you need some help in the garden? I have this nice, long, hard....trowel." He whips a trowel out of his tool belt and starts digging the compost.

Oh yeah!

What? Well, maybe that's stretching it a little bit, but anyway....

My kitchen herb garden is starting to bloom...I have oregano, chives, sage, lemon balm, thyme and lots of edible Johnny Jump-Ups in every color. I highly recommend growing some of these sweet can throw them on a salad, in a pitcher of lemonade, or on a fruit platter. This weekend I'm heading to my favorite nursery to get basil, tomatoes, etc. My daughter Natty (who is 7) planted the peas, lettuce, radishes and beets in our veggie garden last weekend. Now, I just have to figure out how to keep the bunnies out of the garden!
