First I would like to thank all of my customers for their orders in the month of March. I decided to donate a percentage of my commissions to the Mario Lemieux Foundation, and we were able to raise $170 for the Foundation in honor of my Coach Katy who is battling Lymphoma. Once the team tallies the amount donated, I will report the final numbers.
As for my journey, I am happy to report that I do not need Chemotherapy or Radiation. My prognosis is good, and I will be closely monitored for recurrance (my rate is 30-40%). Every three months I will have a series of tests to be sure that Sarcoma does not return.

Growing your own garden.
Now that we are into spring, it is time to get those seeds planted. Growing up we never grew anything. However, when I got married, I learned how to care for vegetables. My husband grew up on 100 acres, and his family grew much of their own fruits and veggies. They canned and froze much of their produce to make their harvest last through the year. While I would love to do this, I live on .22 acres, and much of that is black top. However, I do like to grow some tomatoes, peppers, greens, garlic and herbs. There is nothing better than growing your own food and benefiting from the fruits of your labor.
Since I have young children we go through milk like crazy and I have been collecting their milk containers. The bottom of the containers are lined with rocks, to allow for drainage. The soild was then placed on top, and then I planted the seeds. So far I have sprouts from the spinach, basil, and parsley. Please I urge you to grow your own basil, it is so easy and so cheap compared to the store. Basil freezes very well too!
