So About That Snow…

So I may have complained that we weren’t getting enough snow a little too early. February went from having temps in the 60s to suddenly becoming the snowiest February we’ve ever had, and the beginning of March hasn’t slowed the snow down at all. And that daffodil that I had taken a photo of popping…

Winter or Spring?

So it’s February. And I have daffodils coming up. In February. Something is so wrong with this picture. Don’t get me wrong, I love spring time. REALLY love spring time. But I kind of think that spring should happen in spring. NOT in February. Because I figure that if it is trying to be spring…

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…

Gardening 101 Week 8

How’s everyone one doing? My tomatoes and broccoli are almost ready to put in the ground! According to my great grandma, one should plant on or around Mother’s Day. We almost have the garden ready, we need to use the rotor-tiller this week, or as my son calls it “the roller-tator”. This will get the…

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…

Gardening 101 Week 5

I waged war tonight. Usually one does not think of gardening as a violent pass-time, but tonight, I was a force to be reckoned with. And I would not walk away with defeat. What is this terrible foe that is threatening me? An April snowstorm has me in its sights and I will not be…

Planting 101 week 4

  How is everyone doing? I’m having some successes and some not so much. I ended up replanting the tomatoes that froze because I left the window open last week, but nothing has come up yet. I did replant my broccoli and they seem to be doing ok. I had started with 9 broccoli plants…

Edric’s 5th Package

  Another family is traveling to Korea to meet their little one and have their court appearance and so they have volunteered to take a package for us. I really had to pack this zip lock baggie to get everything to fit (I actually had to tape the top in order to keep it from…

Planting 101 Week 3

  So it’s Monday again which means another gardening post. How is everyone doing? Seeds planted? Anything coming up? I’ve got a lot coming up, they’ve gotten too tall to keep the clear cover over them and I think today they may have gotten either a little cold from the wind (from my open window)…

Week 1 sprouts

So I’ve unofficially made Monday’s my planting/gardening day to post. Don’t hold me to that because nothing has been real official on this blog. But since its the third week in a row then we’ll go with it for now. How is everyone doing? Don’t worry if you are late getting things planted, in the…
