Since we ordered SO many things for this year, and expanded how much space we were gardening in, I decided to go over groups of things in separate posts, in no particular order and spread over the next few days. To start, let's take a look at our peas and beans. I had wanted to … Continue reading Analyzing our 2021 garden: peas and beans
With snow on the ground and temperatures dropping, this is the perfect time to look at how our gardens did this past year, compare it to the year before where we can, re-examine our goals, make some adjustments, and use that information to plan on what we will do next year. Because we went from … Continue reading Analyzing our 2021 garden: overview and planning for 2022 and beyond
I was happy to find a small package waiting for me at the post office, today. Our replacement seeds from Veseys had come in! Ginger REALLY wanted to be in the picture! 😀 You can read about our first seed order for 2022, and why we chose what we did, in this post. This image … Continue reading Our 2022 garden: replacement seeds in
Our first order of seeds from Veseys arrived in the mail today! You can read about why I ordered what I did in this post. We got our two types of pole beans and the corn in baggies. There are quite a lot of seeds in each, which is pretty awesome. After this past summer's … Continue reading Our 2022 garden: first seed order is in!
Today turned out to be a lovely day. Sunny, and at a high of 8C/46F, warmer than predicted. It made it very hard to believe that there is a storm and blizzard coming our way, starting tomorrow! While my phone's weather app has been saying a blizzard was coming since yesterday, it was only until … Continue reading Scrambling to catch up, and a court update
What a day. What a long day that started really well... I had a very enthusiastic crowd waiting for me this morning. Including the new edition. I was even able to pet her a few times, though she kept moving away when I did. But yes, I was able to confirm. Our new addition is … Continue reading The good, the bad, the “someone just shoot me now”

This is how it looked before we started. My older daughter isn't working on commissions for … Continue reading More garden clean up
I headed out early today, for my court date with our vandal. It's been a year, minus a day, since my first court date regarding my application for a restraining order was scheduled. It was a very, very long day. No, it's not resolved. But before I get into that, I will talk about something … Continue reading Manual labour is good therapy, and a court update
While it was a warm day today, it wasn't quite warm enough to work on garden beds, so once the outhouse floor was done, I focused on doing a number of small jobs around the yard. One of them was to replace the grass mulch on the garlic beds with a thick layer of straw. … Continue reading More fall clean up, prowlers, and there’s a stranger in town!
We're having another lovely, mild day with sunny skies. A perfect day to get more done outside! My main goal for the day was to finally build the third low raised bed box and set it up. The ground is starting to freeze, though, so I couldn't make quite as deep a "foundation" as with … Continue reading Boxes, tubers, broken tools and… cows!
