"Green Acres" it ain't, but we love owning and visiting the Hawksbill Cabin, near Stanley and Luray, Virginia, and a wealth of outdoor activities, including: the "World Famous" Shenandoah River, Shenandoah National Park, Skyline Drive, Luray Caverns, and Massanutten Resort. From time to time we'll post about other stuff, too.
As the number of blog posts grows, we've added a few navigation tools in the right column to facilitate getting around the site.

The Truck Patch is in
The 2012 edition of Mary's truck patch, just getting started.
Mary put the truck patch in a few weeks ago, but I’ve just
been slow to post about it. She always has
great luck with tomatoes in the backyard in Alexandria, so of course she has a
few plants going. She also chose a few
more pepper plants this year than last. She’s
planted yellow squash, and added a “Japanese eggplant” vine this year.
A weekend harvest from last year. I forgot about the okra.
We had a pretty good harvest last year – it supplemented the
great bounty we got at the Luray-Page County Farmers Market. We’ll look forward to enjoying it this year
Of course, this Saturday will be our first visit to the
Farmers Market in Luray this year, so we’re looking forward to it – and I will
put up a post next week!
