A New Look for the Garden

Welcome to the new home of Eating from the Garden! If you've been here before, you can see we've made significant changes to the blog. As you navigate around, please let us know if you have any problems getting things to work properly. We've worked very hard to make sure that everything functions as it should, but there's a lot of new content, and undoubtedly we missed a few things here and there. You can send an email (see the sidebar), or just leave a comment to tell us what you found, or ask questions about various functions.

Maybe the most important thing to note is that you can be automatically notified about a new blog post or a new posted recipe, by clicking the links in the sidebars on any of the pages - the links that say "Don't Miss a Post" and "Don't Miss a Recipe" - where you'll be instructed to enter your email. Then each time I post, you'll get a heads up! Be sure to sign-up once for blog posts, and once for recipe posts, if you want both notifications. And, you only need to do this on one page, you don't have to do the sign-up on each page of the blog. Also, if you prefer the bookmarks route, that function is available in the sidebar too. If you don't even know what a bookmark function is, don't sweat it, just click the links and plug in your email!

Check out the Garden of Recipes by clicking on the tab above. There's a great feature in the sidebar that let's you find recipes by type - appetizer, main dish, etc. It should help you out if you're having a "what should we have?" kind of day! I plan to add many, many more recipes here and I know there are people to whom I've promised a recipe and I never followed through - bad girl. So, again, leave a comment or send an email and I'll try to add the requested recipe as soon as I can.

There is another tab with Gardening Books we recommend, and a General Store tab where you can purchase items that we use and love around here. Both of these pages utilize my Amazon affiliation, which pays dividends (barely), and you'll be entering Amazon via my site's code. Now, I'm not allowed to ask you to do your purchases this way, but I'm simply letting you know how it works! It's all about being above board you know!

I love the new look and it's been a great creative outlet! I can't thank my husband and my brother enough for all the hard work they put into this for me. Love you guys!
