    Bean bonanza and the repairs begin!

    Photo-upload-423809?1424708221 Yesterday someone gave me an amazing photograph of the tornado and hail storm that damaged our place last June, taken from a nearby campground. From the vantage point it looks like it is over our place. Since we were so quickly enveloped by darkness and chaos it's sobering now to see it from a di...

The bucket I started now has chard in it, ...

    Saturday Grass Mowing and Unexpected Events.

    Photo-upload-423944?1424916192 Garden growth had gotten away from me. I had not been feeling 100% well for a long time, and always put it down to the incessant migraines that I suffer. Add to that lawn mowers that refuse to start for me, left our grass growing beyond the tolerable. When some clumps of grass are taller than ...

    The first flower of 2015

    Photo-upload-423909?1424826503 I think this must be a record for an early flower, and it isn't crocuses in Path but a snowdrop. How did that get there? Plants move themselves around the garden in mysterious ways. Was it there last year? Perhaps… I had picked up some sticks on my way home to lay on Path garden to keep the cats ...

    Really itchy.

    I have got the "need to plant NOW" itch real bad. Seed catalogs came late this year, so I'm getting started on my seed-starting late. In reality I've been poring over them in 10-minute increments for the last three weeks trying to decide what stuff to try. I have the distinct feeling that I'm ...

    Happy Lunar New Year, a Time for New Beginnings and new PLANTINGS :)

    Yay, an excuse for me to start over with my gardening! Happy Year of the Sheep, Ram, or Goat! I am transplanting some new shrubs today, into the large empty spaces of bare dirt surrounding my home's front foundation. The plants that used to be there were killed off by foundation repair perso...

    More Veggie & Herb Seed Sowing

    Most of these are heirloom and OP varieties I am growing out for seed. I have sown an entire packet of seeds into each cell (20-100 seeds per cell), because these seed packets have gotten a bit old. Even if the plants bolt or get tough due to hot weather in late Spring, this will be fine as lon...

    More snow, time to plant peppers!

    We keep going back and forth on how to handle things in the Solarium. We use it as our main greenhouse, but it's actually not set up well for that purpose. It would be great to have a misting system in there, and a drainage system for the floor, but it's currently made out of materials that can't...
