March 20th was the first official day of spring. The weather is turning noticeably nicer. Our yard is needing some clean up. Hubby got it in his head that we needed to de-thatch the year. After he did some research, he learned that you are supposed to de-thatch the yard every 5-7 years…we have never… Continue reading Spring is HERE!!!
The weather has turned so garden beds needed to be cleaned up and tucked in for winter. I don’t grow fall crops, normally because by the time fall comes, I am done with having to deal with the garden. Also, this year for some reason I was having some sort of allergic reaction when I… Continue reading Good Night Garden
Fall is right around the corner. The cooler weather is upon us … some days at least. Evenings are for dropped temperatures and fires. My favorite time of year. Enter smiles just because the weather is not as hot, but it is still sunny. Our pumpkin patch has dead leaves and is ready to be… Continue reading Fall is in the air … soon!
Well those squash bugs have finally done my plants in. They ate their way through the stems of the squash and zucchini plants and feasted on the leaves and stem. So, while we were doing our best removing the eggs and bugs while we saw them, it wasn’t enough. I did more research into those… Continue reading Garden Box Clean Up … ???

Well that was the other weekend, so my tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, dill, zucchini, and yellow squash are planted. We have been taking the plants outside to get the sun and breeze to help harden them off for like two… Continue reading Backyard Planted
We started our seeds for tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, and pumpkins around March 15. We have other things we are thinking about planting this year but currently these are the only seeds we need to start. We started them in a black tray with a clear plastic lid to create a greenhouse effect. We started the… Continue reading Seeds ARE Planted
The weather is getting nicer and nicer, but I am no fool, Mother Nature has tricked me before so I will continue to day dream about my garden until its closer to Mothers Day. That being said I keep looking about my window at my gardens. This E garden, was our first garden. It is… Continue reading Sleeping Gardens
So our garden this year had to be changed up a little. Our first garden bed in the shape of an E is on its last leg. This year will be that last year for it. It is rotting but more than that because we could fix that, the trees have grown in such a… Continue reading Garden update!
