Maple Almond Granola

I was going through some old recipes the other day and I found my old “crunchy granola” recipe from the seventies.  Yes, I admit it, I made granola in the seventies, and we called it “crunchy granola”.  It was really good granola, the kind with big clumps, and I made it often as you can see by the recipe card.  I had edited the original version but I don’t remember where it came from.

Spring Garden Update

I haven’t been out in the garden much because of the rain.  It’s been raining almost every day.  In a brief break a few days ago, I went out to see how spring has progressing.  This is a picture above is my peach tree.  It’s the second tree to bloom, the almond is always the first.  With all this rain,  I worry that the bees won’t be able to pollinate and the wind and rain with wash off the blooms, which means we won’t have any fruit.
