2014 Veggie Garden offically started!

Finally - it's been years since I got to really get into doing a veggie garden, but I got a start on it today! It didn't take much work to get the container/raised beds cleaned up from the winter, and I planted onions: And a lonely rhubarb…

Plan a post for October 15th about climate change!

I loved this spring. We had a week of hot and it's been so mild otherwise. Think it'll last into summer?

Plans

...or the lack there of... Once gain, I'm looking through the Territorial Seed Winter 2009 catalog and just wishing because we think we might move come tax-refund-time. The yard is great, but this house is too damn small. We need at least…

A random post

I have garden pictures but need to find my card reader to get them onto the computer. It's growing great, mostly in spite of me - definitely not because of! The snap peas are going crazy. I think the weather has freaked out the onions, a couple…
