Welcome to Mrs. Frisbie’s House

  Hi, I'm Mrs. Frisbie.  I love that name.  It makes me feel like I should be baking cookies or canning soup, or maybe relaying my tale of adventures with the rats of Nimh.  I'm a wife and mom who would rather be home with my family than anywhere else. But, life is busy with work,... Continue Reading →

Did anyone else feel like THIS last weekend? Yeah... us, too! We spent all of Saturday playing outside. We finally got into the garden, too. Tootsie and Pookah raked leaves, Silverback mulched them and helped move our composter, and I dug, pulled, cut, and shovelled 'til I couldn't move my aching bones. It was awesome!!!...

Today was... Continue Reading →

The Square Foot Garden Plan

Last Spring, while we were expecting Tootsie to come along in the middle of June, I didn't know how much energy or time I would have to maintain a garden.  I wondered:  even if I got it started, how would I keep it weeded?  I envisioned a mass of wild grasses choking out my vegetable...
