Why "Good Dinner Mrs Mellen"

The idea for a blog called "Good Dinner Mrs Mellen" came from my family. My family was always complementing me on my cooking, not only the food but my presentation. So after enjoying the dinner that I prepared, they would always tease me and say "Good Dinner Mrs Mellen " And it stuck. When I told them I wanted to do a blog and asked what I should call my blog, there was only one suggestion. I love to cook and entertain. I am passionate about all that I love, family, friends and my home. I love not only to cook but to garden, decorate and make my surroundings beautiful. Some might say that I am at times over the top, (especially by New England standard) but I accepted a long time ago that this is who I am and what makes me happy. Oh, and to all my friends that are reading this and think I'm going to blog about clothes, this is not about my love of clothes and fashion. (that would take a whole new long blog to cover that topic. I do love clothes and fashion!!!)

So now I am starting the journey into being a blogger. My blog is about a life style that I enjoy creating and sharing with others. So just as I welcome everyone to my home, I welcome all to my blog and hope that you enjoy my posts.

Go girlfriend....I look forward to your blog. I have a question for you. I have always wanted to plant sun flowers so I went ahead and bought the seeds. The problem with the soil around here is that it is all clay. So I thought maybe I should start the seeds in a pot with good potting soil then transplant the seedlings directly into the ground with a mixture of good soil. What do you think? Will it work?

Cheryl I like to start my favorite annuals inside to get a jump on the season. I like the peat pots to start seeds because they are biodegradable and you can plant seedling along with the pot after the last frost. Our growing season is short so this is a good way to have a longer bloom period. I think most of the top soil at my house was carted off when the house was build leaving clay and rocks. What I've done is have top soil brought in for my big gardens and I've done just what you said, for my smaller beds, added a mixture of good soil. I think that you will be happy with the results.
