When I placed our order for fall garlic, I also ordered a pack of seeds for next year's garden. It felt kind of weird to order just one pack of seeds. Especially since the garlic will be shipper later, when it's time to plant them in our zone. This is a variety of tomatoes my … Continue reading Our 2022 garden: chocolate
Before heading out to do the watering, I went through our remaining seed packets to do a bit of planning. First, there's what's left of things we planted in the spring. To the right, we have the two types of carrots in pelleted seeds. I keep reading that we can still plant carrots this late … Continue reading Our 2021 – and 2022 – garden: seed assessment
No, that is not a typo! While we have extra seeds that we got for this year's garden that we will use next year, yesterday I bought the first seeds specifically for next year's garden. While going through seed sites with my daughters, we spotted these Yellow Pear heritage tomatoes and we all agreed that … Continue reading Our 2022 garden: first seeds
We had another change in plans, today. I was supposed to take my mother to a doctor's appointment, but the clinic called and it got rescheduled to tomorrow. Which meant I could change into my grubbies and go play in the dirt! 😀 Today, we finally got most of our cold hardy seeds in the … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: planting day!
After hauling to many loads of soil over the rough, rough ground, none of us were up to doing it again today. So our Sunday remained a day of rest! We did still go out to soak down the beds we are working on, though, along with other watering and checking of things. There is … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: seed planning, a furry mushroom, and oops!
Wow. It's coming up on 10pm as I start this, and this is the first time I've had to sit down for most of the day! Today was our monthly shop, so after doing my rounds, my younger daughter and I headed out to the city. We were going to do our usual shop when … Continue reading Our 2021 garden seedling shuffle, monthly shop, and man that’s bright!
In choosing garden seeds this year, we kept a lot of things in mind. Choosing food that we'll actually eat, choosing foods for long term storage, choosing foods we would eat more of, if they were more affordable at the grocery store, and choosing foods just for the fun or challenge of it. One of … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: our Morado mystery
I needed to divert myself with positive thinking, and what better way to do that than to think of gardening! Also, I am striving mightily to NOT start those tomatoes yet, so sitting here and writing about starting them is keeping me from starting them. 😀 I will explain shortly. First, I went through the … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: getting organized
My daughter's birthday gift is not the only thing that came in the mail today! The very last of our outstanding seed orders are in. Yay!!! The yellow beans are the last of a three colour collection we ordered, so we will have yellow, green and purple bush beans to grow. I'm really happy to … Continue reading Our 2021 Garden: back ordered Veseys seeds are in!
I made it to the post office while running errands today, and had a small package waiting. I just sort of assumed it was for my daughters or my husband, but nope! It turned out to be my last minute order from Baker Creek. I am totally shocked that it arrived already! When I placed … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: Baker Creek order arrived!
