Having never done one of these before, I'll probably do something wrong. Double Danger started it, blame them! :duck Describe your gardening style Throw stuff in the ground and hope it grows? I use all natural stuff to make it work and…

Less scatterbrained planning

The 2 year old finally chilled out long enough for a couple cells in my head to stop rattling and I made a list for what to grow. We went to Lowes for a few things and I found onion and potato starts so I got those to try out - russet and red…

New home, neighborhood, garden!

Now that the toilet and bathroom sink work, we're settling in well. The move wasn't bad at all. Except my ex-landlord stalking me. But I blocked her and she doesn't know our new address so it's all good now. Our new neighborhood seems excellent…

Boxes! AHHHHHHHHH

I'm going to have nightmares about monster boxes, I swear. Our one car garage is completely packed with boxes and there's a good roomful still inside, plus furniture.  I hope the 24' Uhaul is enough - I figured without my dad's stuff here and…

Our new house

We move in Friday! Woohoo! :banana It wasn't the house in the previous post, but it will definitely do. It's already got a garden plot! And a fireplace, and all hardwood floors (I freaking hate carpets)  and cherry cabinets in the kitchen.…

Staying in Oregon and Strawberries?

NO IDAHO! YES! Excuse the shouting, I'm very happy about it. I get to stay here! We'll find out today or tomorrow if we get the house we want - it has a backyard bigger then our current one (you've seen the pictures) with the entire back…

If you haven't heard about this yet, please read up!

Day After Tomorrow?

Yes, my favorite movies (after the Stargates) are those involving extreme weather and massive change to humanity, especially Americans. So Texas and California and Florida are looking at darn cold wind chills with the northern states in a…

3 weeks (dun dun duuuunnn)

3 weeks til we leave for Idaho - assuming the IRS gives me the refund instead of auditing me instead. Chances are low, yes, but I'm one of those lucky "special" people, you know? So the bright spot - the only one (I really don't want to live…

Wanted: Your enchilada recipes!

I've never found a good enchilada recipes that I can eat. All the top recipes at allrecipes.com have cream of gak soups (complete with migraine inducing MSG) or sour cream/cottage cheese, also migraine inducing. Can anyone help me out with a…

Garden of Eatin': Winter Edition

Who ordered the cold, snow and ice? Cause I'm living in the Willamette Valley and it got lost here. I'd love to send it to you! We lost power (along with 49,000 other people) last night from 4:30pm to midnight and it's been non stop snowing…

Slowing down

There hasn't been much garden to blog about and it makes me sad. I wish I was able to plant my fall/winter garden and be working with that and blogging about it. Hopefully in spring we'll have another one going where ever we may be. The tomatoes…
