Garden 2019…

So I said I wasn’t going to do a garden this year but I might have changed my mind. I love to garden but with 5 kiddos and life I have started the past two years with good intentions only to end with dried up dead plants and very healthy weeds. I had also decided…

Planting Flowers….

So no lie here, I love spring. I love the grass turning green and flowers starting to poke through the ground and bloom. Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths just make me smile. I planted a few tulips and hyacinths last year right off our front porch and I noticed a couple of the hyacinths poking through…

Armstrong Garden 2018

It’s that time of year again. Time when everything blooms and I love it. It’s also time to get my garden going. Now in years past I have started everything inside and had a big garden. When we moved last year the house we moved into had two smaller raised beds and so we planted…

Dear Edric-2017…

Hey buddy, it was 2 years ago today that we met you for the first time in a crowded little hot room in the middle of Seoul. A journey that had literally begun 3 years before was finally approaching the end in that little room.  You were just a tiny little peanut and really not…

Adventures In Gardening…

When we moved I had to leave behind my flower garden and my vegetable garden that I have spent the past 6 years developing. Luckily there is a lot of landscaping already done at our new house, I want to add more flowers, but there are plenty of trees and shrubs and a good foundation…

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…

Garden

So it’s been a few too many weeks since I last updated about the garden. Oops, summer does that to me. Weeks go by, we are busy and having fun and playing and I forget to blog. A lot. But alas, my garden has not forgotten to grow. Except for the broccoli that were eaten…

Garden is In!….And Possibly Drowning

So I didn’t quite make my “in by Mother’s Day” rule for getting my garden it. Because it was snowing. On May 10th. Snowing. I was suppose to run my Mom’s Day race that AM and get my garden planted that afternoon. But it was snowing. So the race got cancelled and I didn’t plant…

Sprouts Are Growing!

I love spring time. I think I’ve only said that about a million times. But it is still true. Even rainy Sunday afternoons, because I know that everything will be greener when the rain stops. Some of my flowers are blooming, I have tulips that are bright and beautiful and a couple little flowers here…

Re-potting The Sprouts

My sprouts are doing great! Well, at least some of them are, some of them forgot that their goal in life was to grow and become plants. So since it has been 3 weeks since I first planted the seeds I replanted the containers where nothing had grown. The only problem being that I never…
