For Midwestern home gardeners and naturalists, just for fun!                                                               All my observations, photos, musings etc. on this website are centered on our 10 acres (named Shepherd Glen) in Jackson County Missouri, but I have found that observations (and frustrations) in our area translate pretty well throughout the Midwest.



What's New on !!  

I've added a new article:

  • "Identifying and Managing Vines in the Wild - Not so “di-Vine”. The title reflects the fact that vines are my nemises; even the contributing factor in me breaking my arm!


Click on the "Flora" Tab:

  • The addition of a vine & shrub inventory of our 10 acres
  • The addition of a tree inventory of our 10 acres


Click on "Fauna":

  • More Butterflies and Moths have been added


The "Gardening & Recipe"Tab:

  • Reflections on this year's green (snap) bean harvest


Check out "In the News!"

  • USDA has issued a new hardiness zone map - "See if yours has changed"
  • See the News Release from the Missouri Department of Conservation regarding the Callery Pear Buyback Program (i.e. free tree for cutting a Callery Pear tree down)


Punxsutawny Phil did NOT see his shadow, so Spring is right around the corner! Get ready for Spring Clean-up!
