    Late freeze, historical find, and chayote sprouting

    The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of gardening and creative activities, problem solving and other oddities that I’m behind documenting it in Folia. I’ll have to write some catch-up journals; this one is for this week. Unbelievably, the storm that brought many northern gardeners...

    I am back again...

    Rhodie garden , Corner garden , and Vegetable & Fruit garden
    and it certainly has been a while! Yikes! I had no idea how busy my life could get once I was single again and starting to do things to take care of myself. Classes, a very part time job in addition to my full time one, and lots of social activities. Phew! Last year while going through those diff...

    Easter Sunday

    Narnia garden , Tulips- "Dordogne" under gate Budding, Tulips- "Fringed Elegance" New Patio Budding, Tulips...
    I spent Easter weekend in some major clean up— got the Wagon Wheel, Narnia, and the patio cleaned up. I’m realizing that Narnia really really really wants to have about a million tulips. By fall I should know if I’m staying in the house and that is definitely going to be my divo...

    :) Hello, I’m actually doing lots of gardening stuff now, so I’ll be a lot more active on here at last. Apparently I hadn’t logged a milestone for 10 months! I’m sorry, Folia! Updating all the changes in my plantings will take a while, I’m sure, but in the meantime I...

    Harvesting: First ever Napa cabbage & first of the year carrots

    Rugosa rose 'Fru Dagmar Hastrup' Flowering, Coral Honeysuckle Flowering, Kale 'Redbor' Harvesting, Carrot '...
    Harvested my first-ever Napa cabbage today, along with the first carrots of 2014, more kale and peas, and another round of purple sprouting broccoli sprouts. (Oddly, only one of our five purple sprouting broccoli plants is producing sprouts. That one has been producing for at least a couple of w...

    Chilly seedlings

    Seed Starting 2014 garden
    Seedlings were slow to start and have been stuck at a half inch for more than 2 weeks, so I moved the whole set up out of the freezing cold basement (no radiators down there, so it’s stuck at about 52F, like a cave). It’s a complete and utter jerry-rig. If I hear a loud crash, that w...

    Unscathed! Time to plant more onion.

    We only spent 3 hours around 26F last night – a few things look damaged (a couple of Hostas, the peach tree blooms [peach tree is very young so blooms don’t matter this year except for pretty]) – but everything else looks about like it did yesterday. Considering the panic from t...

    Quail Springs Visit part III- chickens and ducks.

    At Quail Springs, Brenton led many of the tours. Knowledgeable in most of the aspects of the functioning of this permaculture farm, he is happy to share what he knows on many subjects. The only difficulty is getting a question heard, in the press of people who are curious about everything about ...
