Last Days of the Garden


Summer is over and my garden is pretty much done. I didn’t have to buy a bell pepper, cucumber, tomato, eggplant, yellow summer squash, collard green or Kale for months. We stopped fighting our resident bunny rabbit and gave him the lettuce and cabbage (he just wouldn’t leave no matter what we did) my husband even tried a Bugs Bunny trap complete with a carrot and he wouldn’t fall for it. Anyway the universe said share and we decided to. Plus he’s kinda cut cotton tail and all. Great produce summer any way!!

Garden Beginnings


If you are new to my blog you may not know about my garden. I love my garden and the best thing is that we eat from it all summer. I haven’t mastered the layout process and no matter how hard I try, I lose control of some part of it every year. I have so many tomato vines I can’t see the tomatoes. I will try again to prevent that from happening. Anyway, this year I am planting the peas early since they practically fry if they are planted to late in the season. I bought a blueberry bush and I am going to try to protect the berries from the squirrels and birds. That may be difficult but I will net the shrub to start and see how that works. We will be using the composte we made all winter this year and I am excited. I will keep you informed.

Thoughts of Spring Are In My Head


Okay it’s only February but talk of high gas prices have me thinking of less driving. One thing that we can cut is trips to the grocery store. During the spring and summer we have niceĀ  garden here in the City. I said to my husband we need to start planning our planting schedule because we need to get an early start this year. Nothing is more gratifying than having a salad and fresh veggies without the trip to the store. Spring is on my mind.
