I shared online recently about a funny conversation between my husband and I. We were watching an anglophone series (a great way for him to learn conversational expressions etc) and the characters were talking about throwing a baby shower for the expectant mother.

The not so secret ingredient in the French kitchen and other garden victories

It’s been a great year in the garden. I’m thankful to report this because it always seems like it’s a battle against just about every pest under the sun. I’m still learning about the soil, trying to enrich it with compost or companion planting to give everything a natural boost, but still, sometimes I just…
