Garden Update, week 4

by Edie Wadsworth on May 30, 2012

Right after planting: Week 2 Week 4 I head out with my coffee to spend my early mornings in the garden: pulling little weeds, listening to the birds, harvesting the herbs. It may well be my favorite time of day. Then again, in the evenings, when the sun has moved around to the back of […]


3 steps to making peace with your papers

by Edie Wadsworth on May 24, 2012

People who know me really well are chuckling right now. Me?    Trying to give you advice on your paperwork organization?  It’s  nearly outrageous.   I’m the creative, artsy, right-brained, ADD, ENFP type who has never balanced her checkbook.  Isn’t that what the bank is for?  I’m posting this while my sister is out of […]


My friend Jen is hosting a ‘must try’ recipes contest today with 8 other bloggers.  This week is such perfect timing since we’ll all be trying to think of new and tasty recipes to make for our Memorial Day cookouts!    The contest lasts for 24 hours and you can only comment once.  I’d be […]


Running is Overrated. Amen.

by Edie Wadsworth on May 18, 2012

My little Elea Grace (called ‘Goosie’ by her parents) loves to text me in the mornings precisely when I’m on an uphill climb on my morning run. Which means I get more texting done than running. Which means I may never run that marathon. But her texts are pretty much hilarious and are usually chocked […]

what momma said

by Edie Wadsworth on May 13, 2012

I can’t remember the exact circumstances in which she said it but I’ve spent a lifetime trying to grow into it. Thank you, Momma, for your tireless example of what it means to give yourself away to others. And to all my strong and brave momma friends—-the sun (Son) always shines where you are too. […]

The Urban Garden, planting and sowing

by Edie Wadsworth on May 8, 2012

urban garden

Calling my garden an urban garden is a little misleading. I do live in Bean Station, TN, for pete’s sake,  not exactly an urban metropolis. But I call it an urban or kitchen garden because of it’s unique small size and placement.  It’s a 10×12 ft garden that sits right beside our garage.  I finished […]

“Sowing” {a kitchen garden}

by Edie Wadsworth on May 1, 2012

I’m downright shaken to the core by Wendell Berry’s writing.  When is the last time you read someone who simultaneously made you want to be a better mother and wife, grow a garden, raise some livestock and read more poetry and Homer?  He is a prophet of sorts, providing insightful and critical commentary on our […]
