Being finished with the main chores in the front room, I can pay more attention to my garden again. Wow, I neglected it for several weeks. The garden beds need a lot of work, before they will look nice and healthy again. Yesterday, I’ve got one of the beds ready: I pulled the leftover plants and the weeds out, loosened the soil, and mixed more soil and amendment in. Today I added two more bags of soil, before I started planting and sowing. Now, one of the beds looks pretty again. I planted broccoli, white & red cabbages, and cauliflower. And in the space between the vegetables I have sown carrots, radishes, rutabagas, and turnips. They are all yummy Winter goodies. Since I have the chicken wire around the garden beds, the rabbits can not get to them. I hope, the Cabbage White Butterfly doesn’t come around to lay its eggs at this time of the year. That would be a bummer.

My name is Tanja. I live in a small North Texas city within the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex. I have a little house with a suburban yard, a hard working husband, who likes to have a nice cooked meal after work, three kids (24, 15, and 9 years old), two dogs, two cats, and some critters in the backyard. In 2004, I immigrated with my husband and my middle child from Germany to the United States of America. My husband was stationed as an Army Soldier in Germany from 2000 until 2004. His tour in Europe brought him also to Africa and the Middle East. We met, while I worked in a big retail store for the US Armed Forces in Germany. The rest is history. I love traveling, and visited 34 US states and Ontario, Canada so far. No worries, I still will see the other 16 states and more Canadian Territories. It’s on my bucket list. Speaking of “Bucket List”: One of my biggest dreams is to travel to Australia and New Zealand. But after all my favorite spot is sitting on a chair in my yard under a shaded tree drinking a cup of tea, while watching my kids and my pets playing together. And I like to watch the Sun setting; the Moon, the planets and the stars rising in the night sky. So here is my blog page and I invite you virtually to my little corner of planet Earth.
