Math is not my strong point but...

If my fingers calculated correctly, this is my 100th post! And in the spirit of blogging, I'm going to give away this wonderful book by Stella Otto - The Backyard Berry Book.
Chocked full of info on all kinds of berries and all the how to's and when's a person needs to know about growing berries.
Now the odds are pretty good if you enter the give-a-way you might find this showing up in the post at your doorstep. All you need to do is leave a comment if you are already a follower of the blog. If you're not a follower, become one, then leave a comment. I'll put all the names in a big 'ol hat and have hubsters draw the winner a week from today. I'll contact the winner for their mailing address and off it will go! (Overseas is okay, too. I mean, after all, you only have your 100th post once, right?)
Easy as pie. Berry pie! Sorry, couldn't help myself.

I've not been a proper blogger of late. Just busy like everyone else and on top of it I've been lucky to get one nasty spring cold. This is going to be interesting because we have a performance tomorrow night at one of our favorite venues - Bean in the Belfry in Brunswick, MD. One other band mate has been lucky enough to catch it also. We had rehearsals the other night and neither one of us could take a deep breath without coughing our brains out.
Singing and coughing - not a pretty picture!

The new garden is still making progress. We've gotten the fence posts in which was a major chore and now we still have a couple more beds to put together before we put the fencing up. Hopefully I'll be able to update later this weekend.
So, don't forget to put your name in the hat and if you would like, share with other bloggers.
Good luck!!


  1. Congratulations on your 100th post. Doesn't time fly when you're having fun?

  2. I've been lurking on your blog for a while now but never commented. I do enjoy what I see.

  3. THANK YOU for the good thoughts for Hamlet!! I can't believe that you're going to be in Brunswick--That's so close to me--If Hamlet isn't home, maybe we'll pop over and watch you perform--I think it would be great fun!!

    The Berry book looks interesting--We have a lot of berries growing around us, and I'm a little clueless as to what to do with them!

    I read your last post about the eggs--I've never had chickens so of course I've never heard of that happening before--I hope it was just a fluke!

  4. Congratulations on this important milestone! And thank you for your warmth and humour and willingness to educate us all about really good music!

  5. Hi Toni and congratulations on number 100!

    I have only five plants out of twenty planted that have come up, so I notified the nursery this morning. I'm so bummed...I wanted berries this year!!

  6. Congratulations on your 100th post Toni! Hope your band's gig went well and you've managed to shake off that cold!

    Take care.

  7. Congratulations on your 100th post! Glad I found your blog. I love it. And yea, congratulations on your lavender babies too! That book sounds interesting. I am a fan of berries myself. I successfully got my groundcherries (if at all it passes for a berry) ripening and have been praying for months for my almost-two-year-old grape to flower!
