You are more than welcome. Anyway I can help!!!! I can't be of much help in the garden beinf such a beginner...but I know my way around a kitchen pretty darn well! I owned a bakery/cafe for 17 years and have collected cookbooks since I was a child....I HAD to thin them out last summer and sold close to 300 of them...but no fear, I still have 2-3 times that many left! I especially love the community/church cookbooks from other towns/states. I figure if I can help any of you out in the kitchen it wouldn't even begin to repay the help you have given me in the garden...and I had so much fun, can't wait til spring to do it again!!!!
