The 2019 Calendar

November 26th, 2018

I usually try to get the calendar finished in October, but with my sister’s visit and a trip abroad, I didn’t get around to it until today. You can find it here on Thanks for purchasing this calendar, I get a few dollars for each one sold, which helps pay for my hosting and other bills associated with maintaining this blog. I’ll try to add current sales here: 20% Off Calendars, Offer Expires December 20th at 11:59 PM EST, Coupon Code: TWENTY18

The U.S. holidays are on the calendar, they just weren’t in the thumbnail images I downloaded from my proof. I hope you enjoy the calendar this year, I always enjoy looking back through all my images to find the perfect ones.

    I can’t find your calendar listed on Lulu.

    Susy, you always have the best garden calendars. It’s been a different year of gardening for me. Not much happened in the garden due to many things that required my time. I’m having to cut back to half next year but that’s a good thing. I’ll be building up the soil in half of the garden while growing vegetables in the other half. Each year the half growing and the half building the soil will switch. Life has too many demands on my time to devote a lot of time to gardening. Hopefully in another year the load will lighten and I’ll get back to more time in the garden.

    Sounds like your trip to the Holy Land was really awesome. Have a great day.

      I’ve been thinking of doing half the garden this coming summer as well. With increased work load and work and Mr Chiots traveling and working so much I need to try to reduce the work load.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
