St. Augustine, Florida, ranks as one of America’s most haunted cities, not just because of its history, but because of its vast number of documented supernatural sightings. Founded in 1565 by the Spanish, St. Augustine has a colorful history that includes many battles and lots of pirate activity, so it's not surprising that St. Augustine often makes [...]

Pretty, Practical Potager Gardens

By | 2017-09-04T16:14:52+00:00 September 4th, 2017|Uncategorized|

In the French kitchen garden or potager, gardeners have intermingled vegetables, fruits, flowers, and herbs since medieval times. Often called the jardin de curé, or country curate's garden, this intimate and sensual style is comparable to that of the English cottage garden, except that it is centered on vegetables rather than flowers.

It was a dark, gloomy, absolutely no-good day at the Rype & Readi Farm Market. ...actually, that’s not quite right. In reality, the sun was shining quite brightly on the market, and the temperature was hanging steady so that things were neither too hot nor too cold, but just right. In other words, a most [...]
