Strawberry Fields Forever

We had another great year with our strawberries. I wasn’t a huge fan of strawberries until we started to grow them ourselves and I realized what a strawberry should truly taste like. Store bought are just a hint of what a strawberry really should look and taste like. Our strawberries are big, juicy and red…

Excavator K

Well, K has been at it again. He once again stayed home on his day off and put himself into overdrive this time. He didn’t just finish digging one more bed/terrace level, he instead spent 5 hours moving earth and managed to get all of the beds on the one side of our yard cut…

Diggers

K skipped fishing on his day off…mostly because the weather was supposed to be rainy and grey, and instead did a little digging in the yard. Since the weather is ideal for some work that would make a person a little sweaty, K figured he could get the next bed dug out for me. The…

Wet Weather Update

We are back from another amazing, memorable trip. This time we decided to stay in our explore part of our own country and visited beautiful, serene Newfoundland. It was definitely one of our favourite trips to date. We were spoiled with sunny, warm weather for the majority of our trip with only a few rainy…

Trimmed

We are once again going to head on vacation right when our garden is at it’s peak of producing. We went on vacation about the same time back on 2016. But it is worth it, getting to explore the world. Last time we did a 10 day bike trip through Bavaria with my parents, this…

Carrot Bandit

We have started to pluck our tasty carrots out of the garden, even the multi-coloured ones which have been a bit of a disappointment. All of them are finally a good size and are fantastic as a side for dinner, dipped in a bit of hummus. K went to hand water a few plants when…

Landing Pad

We just got back from our annual trip to see an airshow. It was a fantastic show again, despite the rain and some low clouds, the airport did a fantastic job of filling the spaces that were created due to certain planes being unable to fly. Every year that we go there is a guy…

Doesn’t BUG us

Being nerdy geeks, one of the things we love watching in our garden is all the different bugs, insects and critter life that we have living along side us. They are our friendly…and sometime not so friendly…neighbours. Usually we find lots of critters scurrying through the garden beds, burrowing homes between plants and finding ways…

Hot Stuff!

We have grown many peppers in our garden. Sweet, jalapeño, Thai chilies, hot Hungarian and now banana peppers. We have also pickled most of the peppers we have grown, with the exception of the sweet peppers. They are all really good, but so far the best ones for pickling have been the hot Hungarian. I…

Fresh Food

I love this point of time in a garden. The plants have grown, and they are now all producing delicious food. Sure, certain plants have been producing for a while now, but at this point all of the plants are finally sharing their bounty. The strawberries are always the first plant to start producing. This…
