Hobbit Fables #1

My husband and I were talking about the kids and their incessant whining this morning–mom is so evil! She makes me do dishes!–when the Hobbit came up with this lovely Fable that reflects our lives:

 

A dad had kids who refused to eat end pieces of bread. So he told his kids: “Hey, kids, the end pieces are like rolls. You like rolls, so you shouldn’t have a problem with the end pieces of bread.” So the kids quit eating rolls.

 

Urban Gardening

Part of what I do in the deaf community is teach container gardening.  It’s been a passion of mine for a while, and my deaf friends have really enjoyed the pleasures of growing their own vegetables, even if it’s just one small tomato plant.   Lots of them love the idea of growing something they can eat.

I will be starting the Master Gardener Program for Harris County next week, and I set up a blog in tandem with that and the Program goals of teaching and encouraging Urban Gardens.  This is really mostly for Houston, but if you have a container garden, especially if you are deaf, and would like to share it, please feel free to post here: http://urbangardeninginhouston.blogspot.com/

As always, thank you for the wonderful support.  My husband has also been especially encouraging and that is a blessing too.
