Feed Me Seymour!

They are out of control! Voracious, sprouting, insatiable…weeds! I wished and wished for a mild summer, and I have gotten what I asked for. Though, I didn’t expect it to be so wet, but I guess a mild summer in a semi-arid desert is generally that way because of a wetter season. Along with a…

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…

Phase 2 Activated

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 Days

This year we intend to start as many of our plants as possible. In the past we have only started a few of our plants and then purchased the rest from a somewhat local nursery. Many of the seeds we purchased are for our region and are good for approximately 3 years. That being said,…

Tipping The Scales – 2021 Version

Well, I am a little late on this post as other projects have taken over my time, resulting in less posts on here. Our 2021 growing season was awesome, with our new garden beds proving to be the perfect home to our vegetable plants. For the first time this year, we also did some companion…

Torn

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…

Brie Basil Tomato Gooeyness

My mom is to credit for bringing this recipe into my life. First the recipe, then I will tell you about this recipe in the chit-chat section at the end. Ingredients: Brie cheese (full round – any size) Tomatoes (any kind – cherries have a nice aesthetic) Fresh basil Garlic Salt & pepper Olive oil…
