Isolation

What a strange time we are living in. Two years ago, when our province was on fire I thought life became strange. Last year when we had one of the mildest, wettest summers I have experienced in our town I thought life became a little strange, but now with the COVID 19 pandemic, life truly…

Master Gardener

In 2007 I had the privilege of attending the wedding of two of my friends. They had chosen a stunning wedding venue called “Minter Gardens”. I had never heard of it before, but upon arriving, was awed by the beauty of it. The diversity in the plants, the rich flora that gave home to all…

Ringing in the New Year

Happy New Year! As we move into a whole new year, and a whole new decade, K and I had a chance to reminisce about how far we have come in the last 6 years with the yard, the huge progress we made in 2019 and how well we have set ourselves up for projects…

Tipping the Scales

The headway we have been making has come to an end for the season. The weather has turned, the ground is freezing, and all of our next steps need little-to-no-precipitation and an above-freezing temperature to continue. So we have cleaned up, buttoned up and closed down the yard for the season. Which means, we have…

We be Jammin’

So my fall creations from the garden continue…sort of. These two delicious recipes ingredients came from someone else’s gardens, but they are tasty none-the-less, and are getting me prepared for when we have our fruit trees. Our plan is to have peaches, pears, apricots, apples and cherries. I would love some citrus trees, but they…

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…
