You just have to love how quickly things change, day by day! The first ornamental poppies started blooming this morning. They have had bulbs for a while now, and then this morning, two of them exploded into full bloom. 🙂 I was looking at the garlic yesterday evening, and seeing what might, possibly, could be, … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: three firsts, this morning!
Today was one of those days that went all over the place! So this is probably going to be a very disjointed post! 😀 One of the first things I wanted to get done this morning was to call the RCMP, as advised by my lawyer, about the gunshots from our vandal's property.

When looking up how to plant winter garlic, all the resources said to cover the garlic with a heavy layer of mulch. What none of them did was mention when to … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: the garlic beds
I was so excited to finally get our bulbs this morning! Here are the three varieties of garlic we ordered. I appreciate how they add things to the label, like "best for roasting" , "rich, spicy flavour" and "big cloves with bold flavour". This is what 1 pound of each variety looks like. I wasn't … Continue reading Fall planting: the garlic is in!
Just minutes ago, we saw our mystery critter again - this time out by the compost pile! We ended up bringing the DSLR, with it's 700mm lens, and tripod over to try and zoom in for some pictures.
