Flower Garden Update – Week One – April 2018

I've always wanted to make weekly updates, but I'll admit, I always forget about them and fail to keep up with progress. Now that I'm actively trying to get into a better blogging routine, I'll hopefully be able to maintain a better schedule. Let's see what's going on in the garden this week, shall we?…

Winter Sowing Results Pt 2 – Cut Flower and Vegetable Seedlings

If you've been following my YouTube channel at all, you know that I'm completely obsessed with winter sowing. I mean, seriously, I talk about it all the time. I'm almost finished with winter sowing for the season, and I'm so happy to show you all what some of my bottles of seedlings currently look like.…

March Week One Update

Hi Lovelies, Brace yourselves! This post has a lot of pictures. Just a quick peek at ¬†nearly everything¬†that's going on right now!

February Week 4 Update – Germination Celebration, lol.

Hi Lovelies, The week 4 update is a little early, but I probably won't have internet access for the next few days - so I wanted to get these posted now! All of the seedlings below have been planted using the winter sowing method in milk jugs. Let me know if you've got any questions,…

An Update on a Sunny Day

Hi Lovelies, Well, today looks like it's going to be one of the last days before the weather turns gross and cold again. It's sunny, it's 60F.

Garden Planning (The Abridged Version)

Hi Lovelies, I'm so in the mood to plant things! In fact, resisting the urge to plant everything is really difficult. You might think I'm obsessed - I actually probably am. Any how, I wanted to quickly share this video from YouTube here for a couple reasons: There's a lot going on and I'm honestly…

A Post about the Cold and Other Stuff?

Hi Lovelies, It looks like winter is officially here. It's been colder and I've been "babying" the ranunculus in the polytunnel on the extra cold nights. I'll talk more about that in a second. Things seem to be way busier than they should be right now. But, it's definitely been "one of those" weeks. Just…

Preparing Winter Sowing Containers – Ready to Plant!

It's winter, and for me that means something very important! It's time to winter sow some annuals (and perennials!). The discovery of winter sowing was a complete game-changer for me. You see, my tiny little house is a dark wasteland, and the last thing that thrives here are delicate seedlings. Moving the operation outdoors is…

Guide to Planting Daffodils

Hi Lovelies, Well, the fall rain here seems to have officially started (with more in the forecast) courtesy of the hurricane down south. Luckily enough, I was able to quickly throw this year's daffodil bulbs into the ground. Here in zone 6b, I ideally like to plant my daffodil bulbs around mid October - so…

Planting Lots of Tulips, because why not?

Hi Lovelies, Day 20 has come a little bit early to the blog, for the main reason that I probably won't have internet access later tonight when I usually do my 2am writing - I know, I know. Anyway, one of the major tasks that I was able to accomplish today was planting out the…
