Everyday We’re Gardening

Well, the time has finally come…garden day! Our plants inside are very ready to get out and into the garden bed. They are huge, happy and growing like a jungle. We are fast running out of room for them all in the house, so those that can go outside are headed out! It will be…

Towering

Before we could put our beautiful plants outside, we had a little prep-work that needed to happen. For the most part, the work that we did last year with irrigation and creation of areas for planting will stay in place, so that work won’t need to be done again, but maybe just modified a bit….

Pre-Garden Gardening

Well, the time is almost here for our plants to go to their new homes out in the garden beds. Our living room truly is beginning to look like a jungle, with most of the window space being monopolized by our beautiful vegetable plants. Last year, the first things to go into the garden were…

The Beast

It was time to get a new cart as our old one has done it’s fair share of hauling rocks and is clearly showing the wear. It has been an excellent cart for the last 6 years, and without it we wouldn’t have been able to build what we have in the yard. It has…

Sisyphus again and again…

Well, it has been a bit a couple weeks since we got the wall wired up and have since been picking away at getting it filled with rocks. The last 2 weeks have also been very busy, so the wall has been somewhat slow going. But good news, its full! I just need to finish…

Phase 2 Activated

HOPPY EASTER! The indoor plants have moved to phase 2 of the growing process. Where we had 3 greenhouses previously, we have now reduced to 2 and added a table. Some of the plants have outgrown the warm little houses and needed to be moved to a sunny spot where they could continue moving up….

Deja Vu

We are on the final stretch of building rock walls, and it is beginning to feel like deja vu…been here, done this, many, many, many times now. But, despite the fatigue with wanting to build rock walls there is still drive there to get them done because we LOVE the walls we have already finished…

And So It Begins Again…

…For the last time. Wall building season has begun once more, but this will hopefully be the last year that we are building walls. And by walls, I mean the rock walls where we are cementing posts, adding wire and filling with loads and loads of rocks. Don’t get me wrong, I love our walls,…

Indoor Seed Updates

Here are some nice visuals of how our indoor seed starting has been progressing since we planted 4 weeks ago. The greenhouses are becoming greener every day with the plants getting bigger and bigger. A lot of our seeds came up earlier than expected, or at the very start of the expected days to germination….

Planting Plans

Kurt and I always like to spend a day or two in the very late winter deciding what we are going to plant for the upcoming gardening season. We do this late in the winter so that we have plenty of time to get our seeds started in the house before needing to be transplanted…
