Well, this is probably our last Chauvin Produce Company update, ever.... It's been mostly fun, mostly delicious and we've learned a lot about ourselves and how to grow a garden! Next year we will have hopefully found a local produce grower that we can purchase our vegetables from. All of the main garden vegetables have… Continue reading 07.31.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 – July update and final wrap up
I will be 66 soon and Roy will be 70 in January. Our growing up lives were very different than the lives of those growing up now. We have memories of odd things in our past. Odd to those growing up now but very natural to us. I saw these photos recently and they brought… Continue reading 07.28.20 Who remembers using or doing this…..?
This blog post has been in the making for quite a while. I am so thankful that the project and this blog post is completed! I believe that adding a patio with a patio cover was one of the best things we've done. Yes, we (meaning Roy, not me) built a 27 x 16 patio… Continue reading 07.25.20 The new addition to our home and Roy’s new techy toys!
Are you a bit concerned with the shift away from cash or does it seem like no big deal? This information from Dave Ramsey was very eye-opening for me. I hope you will read his article with an open mind. It’s a two-minute read and he does a nice job of explaining this. A cashless… Continue reading 07.20.20 HERE’S WHAT NO CASH ACTUALLY MEANS, by Dave Ramsey
I looked back at last year's Chauvin Produce Company blog post for the end of June and wow what a difference. Hardly anything that we are growing this year is nearly as big or healthy-looking like last year's was. We are using seeds from a different company so since we are doing everything the same… Continue reading 07.05.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 June Update
I truly had forgotten how much time and effort is needed to grow vegetables. And just when some are starting to ripen, the temperatures soar to the 90s which makes being out there really difficult. The only fruit that has required anything has been our blueberries. Since those are necessary for my brain health plus… Continue reading 06.04.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 – May Update
Every vegetable/fruit plant has been in the ground at least one month now. Roy's tomato plants were started inside a month before everything else so they are ahead of other plants. Our blueberries are producing an amazing amount of berries. A couple each day are beginning to turn deep purple. I ate the ones that… Continue reading 05.08.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 – April Update
When we went to visit Roy's parents grave at St. Vincent dePaul Cemetery #1 this week I spent some time walking through the cemetery. I've always loved cemeteries with old graves in them. Of course, I took pictures throughout to share here since a lot of our followers are not from this area and have… Continue reading 02.21.20 A look at what makes New Orleans’ cemeteries unique
Tuesday Roy and I drove the 90-minute ride to visit his parent's graves at St. Vincent dePaul Cemetery #1 in Uptown New Orleans, Louisiana. New Orleans is where we grew up and lived the first 10 years of our married life. It's been a long time since we visited their graves. We set out from… Continue reading 02.19.20 Our day in New Orleans
Saturday was a beautiful sunny 60-degree day at our home in Amite, Louisiana! It was spent outside planting this year's vegetable garden seeds in small pots. Roy planted his creole tomato seeds a few weeks ago and they are doing very well. He planted those seeds differently than we did last year. In past seasons… Continue reading 02.16.20 Chauvin Produce Company – The Seeds are Planted!
