    A trip through the desert.

    Gardening wise I have been fairly quite, too many other distractions. One of those distractions was a winter trip though part of the Strzelecki Desert which is located in north eastern South Australia and north western New South Wales. Most of the time was spent driving but there were still a f...

    Something is coming from the vegetable garden

    and enters the kitchen. Harvested courgettes and a traditional Southern Italian recipe: zucchini alla scapece.

    Oh, is this a gardening site?

    Sorry for all the drawings right in a row! Did you know I also have a garden? I'm hopelessly behind on the harvests, but trust me everything but the tomatoes are doing great. My tomatoes are a disaster this year-- almost no foliage, have completely stopped setting flowers and a ripening oddly ...

    Time is a blur

    No keeping track of harvests, it's been Tomato Pandemonium around here, now seeds are starting to be saved. Heavy rains then no rains meant that many - most - of the Brandywines cracked and then the bugs invaded them. We came out one day and it looked like a large animal had ransacked the tomato ...

    August 2014 Bloom Day

    Hard to believe Summer is almost over! I am not ready for it to end yet. My gardens are blooming profusely this year and it was hard to choose just five pictures. As I was out taking pictures, I noticed that a lot of my plants are setting seeds so I gathered a few Grandpa Ott's Morning Glory S...

    Some seeds and jars

    It so weirdly smells and feels like fall. Instincts like gathering seeds and food for winter are kicking in. Fortunately local stores are assisting with this process, my spider sales sense went off that a particular Ace Hardware would be good to go to (I've never stepped foot in this particular o...

    losing labels, chuckles, oops

    Why is it that though I plan to keep everything properly labeled, somehow I end up with plants that aren't properly labeled? I should have been stapling the labels to the trimmed fans, that's what. So l took that big load hoping to finish off the daylilies and got them into the ground. I hav...
