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 Meh.

Did I say week Meh? Yes, that’s what I said. This week (week 11), besides one bright spot that involved a carrot (more on that in a bit), my garden and I both say Meh. MEH! Why Meh you might be asking yourself, or maybe you’re wondering what’s Meh mean… Wikipedia defines Meh as-“Meh” is …

Garden Gab, Week 8. Munched, blooming and baby veggies.

Things are growing and flowering, and being munched in my garden. Well, and falling. Can’t forget the falling.  Note to self: Plant the tomato plants in the ground. Seriously. Do it soon.  They keep getting blown over and damaged when they fall.  Each plant is half of what it use to be now. The evil …

I saved a tree for Arbor Day and other garden news. Garden Gab week 6

I saved a tree, and I liked it. An oak seedling was trying to grow between the cushions of one of my patio chairs. It’s been rainy and windy. I’m sure that’s why it was so confused. I saved it yesterday and put it in a pot to grow. Once it’s bigger I’ll plant it …
