Bacon-wrapped Pangasius fillet

CONTAINER GARDENING: STRAWBERRY PLANTER USING PALLET

CONTAINER GARDENING: STRAWBERRY PLANTER USING PALLET

Spring is back and that means it is time to start planting again. I think I have mentioned before that we moved (again) to another apartment, one that is closer to where Armin and I work.
