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…

Seeds are Sprouting

And they’ve sprouted! I had a broccoli sprout first and now some tomatoes are joining the fun. At least I’m pretty sure they are tomatoes….I didn’t remember to label any of the planters so I’m just guessing here. Oh well. I love seeing the little sprouts come up. It’s a renewing and a newness and…

Seeds Are Planted!

Yes! March 17th came and I planted! My great-grandma always said that we should start the seeds indoors on March 17th and so instead of wearing green I just got out my green thumb. Actually I’ll be honest. Most years I have all my seeds planned out and how many of what and all that…
