The New Greenhouse and Menu: Week Ending October 12th

This week, the new greenhouse is arriving. My old greenhouse has been out of order since the hail storm two years ago. We debated for a long time whether to replace the glass or buy a new house. It ended up being cheaper to purchase a new house but I didn’t want to get rid of the old house. So we are moving the old house to a safe place and putting a roof on it. I will use it to store equipment. 


This week, the old glass will carefully be removed. I will clean the area with Clorox to make sure there is no bacteria in the house and next weekend, my son and son-in-law will be putting the new greenhouse together.
My garden is still producing arugula, lettuce and herbs. Occasionally, I will get another tomato but I am pulling the garden and covering it with pine straw for the winter. 
Lastly, this week is my daughter’s 30th birthday. She is leaving for the middle east for a month next week, so we are having a big celebration this week. She is always entertaining, funny, happy, motivated and a good person and mother. I am lucky to be her mother. How am I old enough to have a 30 year old? That can’t be true. 

We will also take the little ones for a fall festival this weekend. I am packing a big lunch. We will also have a tailgate at the house for all the big football games this weekend... Mississippi State vs. Auburn and Ole Miss vs. Texas A and M. Very Exciting.

This week’s menu is all about fall and her birthday. She loves lasagna, always has and we will honor that tradition.
