    The tiger-striped asparagus beans have impressively outwitted all calamities, and are positively thriving. I’m saving all the seed for increasing in next year’s planting. Today we harvested our first melon ‘Sweet Freckles’ from the melon landrace project and it is indeed a...

    Melons, coffee stories, and a strange sunset

    Yesterday we harvested two rare Punjabi melons called Kajari from my landrace project. It’s quite possibly crossed with the ‘Sweet Freckles’ melon, of which we harvested a third, and the ‘Prescott Fond Blanc’ which is still on the vine. They are filling the house wit...

    Annuals in All garden
    Yesterday I headed to town and stopped at my favorite greenhouse because they had all their plants 50% off and I wanted to get more annuals to fill in some spots in my beds around the house. Got home and got my tools out and here comes little Joey from next door running up to me and asking “...

    The Herb Garden

    I have been growing all kinds of Herbs through the years. However, these herbs are all over the garden, and that is fantastic.
