Sugarloaf Maine marathon May 2015

When French hubby decided to run the Sugarloaf Marathon, friends were unsure just how serious he was. Due to late melting snow, he started training sometime in April, for a marathon mid-May. His sole source of guidance? A book called Chi Running.

Well, I knew he would be fine. And fine he was. He finished in 3:35! Next goal? Boston Marathon!

Melons in a Maine Greenhouse

Little melon seedlings poking up. It was so chilly out  last night I had to drive over, get them and take them into our house. I hope they survive!

Arugula in Maine. Organic.

I planted the seeds in the greenhouse. Four days later the arugula popped out. Nature never ceases to amaze.
