Gardening 101 Week 20

Week 20? Is that possible already? Yes! You’ve been hard at work for 20 weeks now, and hopefully your garden is beginning to show the fruits of your hard labor. I kind of think of this stage as maintenance. Things are ripening, the things that aren’t going to make it declared themselves long ago, and […]

Gardening 101 Week 20

I have beans! I saw a few small ones early this week and then was checking everything out this weekend and lifted up some leaves and found some full size beans! And more then just a few. I’m already looking forward to some fresh green beans this week for dinner.  And my zucchini is nuts. […]

Gardening 101 Week 19

How is everyone doing? We had a mix of really rainy weather and even cool weather that quickly changed into 90+ degree weather. My flowers are going nuts and enjoying the weather. My tomatoes are struggling just a bit. They are putting on fruit and the main stalk seems to look fine, but their leaves […]

Gardening 101 Week 18

The bunnies are still trying to overtake my garden. They have all but destroyed my morning glories. The one morning glory that I have growing right now is actually growing up between my beans. I think camouflage was the only way to survive the bunnies this year. Luckily my boys are getting quite good at […]

Gardening 101 Week 11

I have beans! Well actually I don’t have beans yet, but my bean plants have popped through. As have my zucchini and pumpkins and some of my onions. I was getting a little worried about my beans early in the week. I had nothing and I was thinking I was going to have to replant […]

Gardening 101 Week 10

We survived the snow storm and most of my plants did ok. However I think it’s going to be a failure year for tomatoes. As you remember I’ve already replanted them once (back a number of weeks ago when they were still seedlings) and now 7 of the 11 that I planted have rotted off […]

Gardening 101 Week 9

Everything is planted! And it’s snowing! Those two sentences should not follow each other. Especially in May. ESPECIALLY IN MAY. But since I have not yet been made Queen of the Universe, they do. But before I burst into tears and sob uncontrollably that all my hard work for the past number of weeks just […]
