Inside and Outside

I was able to collect seeds from last year’s garden to help off set this year’s seed purchase. Left from last year I had Dill, Melon, Snow Peas, Black Eyed Susan Vine, Coriander/Cilantro, Onion Chive, Cardinal Climber, Morning Glory, Basil, Snap Dragons, Nasturtium, Marigold, Sunflower, Lettuce, and Zinnia. This year I bought all of my…

2015 Planning

On January 1st I used the lazy day to start planning the new garden. Some of the old reliable plants sowed from seeds collected in Fall and some new varieties sowed from seeds purchased from High Mowing Organic Seeds in Vermont. Some of my selections are currently on back order so I haven’t placed my…

Good weather means good growth.

Freezing and canning has gotten really fun and rewarding. It’s neat to be eating last season’s harvest while growing the current season. We still have a few jars of spaghetti sauce, pizza sauce, hot relish, salsa, and pickles on hand. Much of what I’ve grown this year are from seeds I collected from last season’s…

Pictured here are Crocus, Tulips, and Hyacinth. In the background are Iris and Daylily. Normally the Snowdrops would be first to arrive. Not…

Found it!

Bunnies 1 Me 0 – But the game isn’t over.

I don’t know if I’m working any concerts this weekend or not. I am tomorrow for sure. If not, I still have Winter Squash and Pumpkins to get in the ground. I also have Summer Squash, more Melons, and more Sunflowers to get in. I haven’t prepared the soil for them yet, either. Ugh. I…

Swiss Chard

Another picture post.

I’m actually not a big fan of the color wheels but they move so easily and make some noise. I’ve had no issues with the rabbits or deer so I’m superstitious about taking them out. There’s some weeding left to be done in the herb garden. It’s all a bunch of grass that seems to…
