Garden Update and My Favorite Granola

The leaves are coming out!

The grass is getting greener!

And the garden is ready for planting!

Yesterday my hubby tilled it and raked it. Of course he had his helpers with him.

Kesa was working in her pretty new dress.

It totally reminded me of a scene from Little House on The Prairie.

We are planning to plant this weekend. This is so exciting! I hope that we will have some beautiful veggies and corn on the cob! This garden is HUGE so something has to turn out.

This morning I had breakfast all ready to go, since I made granola on the weekend too. My favorite granola.

Cranberry Coconut Pecan Granola

This sweet crunch granola is made with some of my favorite ingredients, maple syrup, dried cranberries, shredded coconut and pecans. A great snack anytime and a perfect way to start your day!

Makes 8 cups granola


  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup medium unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan pieces
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil

Directions  Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl combine the oats, coconut, cranberries, pecans and cinnamon. Add the maple syrup and the sunflower oil and mix until combined. Transfer the granola to the baking sheet and spread evenly. Bake for 20-25 minutes, rearranging the granola halfway through baking time Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan. Store in an airtight container or mason jar.

Those are my plans for today!
