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…

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…

Then & Now – Front Yard

The focus has been on the back yard for most of the time we have lived here. Kurt had wanted only one of our yards to be in disarray and chaos at a time, so we had agreed that we would leave the front yard alone until we were finished the back yard. Then COVID…

Then & Now – Left Slope

Continuing on with the timeline of changes to the yard, we are going to take a look at the left side of the yard. 2015 – We will start here as 2013 & 2014 were the same for both sides of the yard. In 2015 we put in our first batch of tomatoes, using the…

Then and Now – Right Slope

It has been just over 5 years since our adventure of landscaping the yard began. We were beginners then, and knew very little about what we were going to face and accomplish. I would say that we have learned a lot and know a moderate amount of landscaping, gardening and general handy-man skills. When in…

The title is an apt use based on the content of this post. Bear with me as it may be a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but all tied together with the torn theme. So let’s start with a landscaping update and the best use of the “torn” theme. Not…

September Comparisons

We seem to have returned to our normally programmed schedule for September weather. It has started getting cooler and the garden is showing it. Some of our plants have wound down in production while others are still pumping out delicious fruits and vegetables. We have been removing some of the sections as they finish, while…

Buildin’ It

As you know it has taken a bit of time to get our ducks in a row and we have had a few setbacks, including personal motivation issues in getting our new walls built, but now we finally seem like we are on our way. We got the post holes dug, delay. We got the…

Dreams to Reality

It has been an exciting summer and we have seen some of our yard dreams become reality. The privacy of the new fence was a huge step towards the yard we had hoped to have, which would be a small oasis of privacy and relaxation. Although we are in a residential neighbourhood rather than in…

200 Ramblings

WOWZA! This is the 200th rambling post that I have written. I am so glad that so many of you continue to enjoy our fumbling and bumbling through landscaping our yard, and have now also been sucked into reading about our favourite garden recipes as well as some of the other hobbies and projects we…
