Starting the Garden 2020

Earlier this week we started our indoor seeds for our new garden this year. I had plenty of help. And actually everyone is at the age where it was actually help. Everyone got 2 seed starter trays that they filled up with dirt and then they would come to me one by one and pick…

Garden 2016

So this is only a few weeks late because life just happens like that sometimes and phone calls come and paperwork happens and things just get crazy. All that said, we did put our garden in a few weeks ago. And I’ll confess now…I did not start a single plant from seed indoors. I always…

Gardening 101 Week 23

Good news. There were no plants murdered this week at our house. I kept my husband and his hoe out of my garden and away from my plants. He instead got to build a screen door for the preschool. Wasn’t he lucky? But we finally had enough tomatoes to make our first batch of salsa….

So this is a day late. But things are growing and our garden is getting ready for the plants to get planted in them. It was a busy week getting the yard ready for summer and the garden ready for planting. First off, remember the garden in the front that we have been re-doing? Well…

Gardening 101 Week 6

  Happy Earth Week! Earth Day is actually on Tuesday April 22nd, so go and plant something this week and make the world a little more beautiful. Besides a little mud on one’s fingers always feels good. How did my tree and plants do with the snow and cold? My buckets and crazy covering of…

Working Hard

  For Christmas my brother got the boys a red truck that they can drive around the yard and my parents got them matching wheel barrows and garden tools. They couldn’t be happier. Any day that it is decently nice (a term used loosely, basically if I can bundle them warm enough they its deemed…
