Just get out and do it.

Welcome to my blog, Garden for Your Life! This site will be mostly about my garden, but you can build one just like it in your back yard too. It can be bigger or smaller, just get out and do it. You can do it for fun. Your can do it for your health. You can do it for fresh food in these troubled times. The point is to get out and do it for whatever reason that you need.

Over time I will cover topics like canning and preserving your harvest, soil and beds, bugs, what to plant and when, and much more.

I've been working on this garden on mine and improving on it for over five years now. I will continue doing that for many more. You can too, just get out and do it.

Blueberry goop

Ok, Its officially called a crisp.  Lori couldn't give me a name for it when she first made it for me, so we have called it goop ever since.  We also make it with all kinds of fruit, but we just finished picking 12 pounds of blueberries.  Lets get started then!

 First the recipe!

4 Cups of fruit!
1 cup of flour
3/4 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup Mayonnaise
Place the delicious fruit in the bottom of 8 x 8 baking pan.
Stir the dry ingredients to gather and mix well.  Add mayonnaise until the mixture resembles course crumbs.  Sprinkle over the fruit.
Bake for 40 minutes or until browned at 400 degrees.



  1. That looks really good! Thanks for sharing the recipe with us. :o)

    Only took 5 tries with the verification to find one I could read...

    1. It's half gone after one night. It's delicious! I didn't know that I had word verification on. It's off now as I hate that thing. Half the time I can't read it either.

  2. I'm very iffy on the mayonaisse... could anything else be substituted for that?

  3. Okay, fruit and mayo - brilliant I assume the mayo takes the place of eggs and oil. So far your site is two for two, I have read two, and they are both winners. I am going to bookmark your site. Thanks

    1. Thank you! Please try it as its delish. You can use just about any fruit for this. We regularly use strawberries, blackberries, peaches, pears, and apples for this recipe. We just have an over abundance of blueberries right now from the pick your own farm.
