Welcome to rain-apocalypse 2012 at least that is how the weather team on T.V. is treating it.   It’s  been raining here for a little over 12 hours.  Storming, wind howling, thunder booming, lightning flashing, big, cold drops of rain falling. Since we just planted the garden, this is a blessing and a curse.   Water …

So, it’s hot…Yep a shocker I know!  Last week, instead of Garden Gab on Friday I posted a whole wheat chocolate cake recipe.  I know, the cake was lovely, but it felt strange after 21 weeks of garden posts to not have one last week.  So, to correct that and make myself feel better….This week …

Garden Gab, week 21….a cool down, a loss and a nursery rhyme

Mary Mary quite contrary, How does your garden grow? With silver bells and cockle shells And pretty maids all in a row, And pretty maids all in a row. That’s how the nursery rhyme goes, however I was disturbed when I looked up the meaning of the rhyme. It’s about Queen Mary, torture and executions. …

Garden Gab week 19 ~ Food for my family

I’ve been negative lately about the heat. I need to work on that. Gardening makes me happy. It provides food for my family and friends. It relieves stress, and it’s my “thing”. I’m 19 weeks in to gardening this season. 19 weeks seems like a lot, but in gardening it’s very little time. My carrots …

Garden Gab, Week 18

Cool weather and rain…where for art thou? It’s been crazy hot here, it’s been 100 deg F or higher for a while now. It’s been years since it’s been this hot for this long. I believe the last time we had a heat wave like this it was during the late 1990’s.  It feels like …

Garden Gab, Week 17~ Baby it’s hot outside

Have I mentioned that it’s really hot here? Like over 100 degrees F here. Like it was 106 or 108 F here on Friday. Like it’s been 100 deg F or higher for 13 or 14 days straight. Like, it’s pretty fracking hot. Like, I’m obviously channeling a Valley Girl from the 1980’s because I …

Garden Gab week 16…..

The veggie tales continue…can I say that without mentioning Veggie Tales? Have you ever seen Veggie Tales? Honestly, I love Veggie Tales. I just wish I had kids who were young enough that they still enjoyed the show. I miss Veggie Tales, my husband and I have tried to watch a few of the newer …

Garden Gab week 15

Here is a peek at my garden this week. The bean plants I planted (well, half of them anyway) have sprouted, are growing and doing great. The other half (which were planted on the other side of the garden box are slow going. My cucumbers are suffering, mostly due to my lawn guy stepping on …
