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! Let's all just hope that this warmer weather will keep on coming our way! Not pictured is the progress on the dahlia tubers that I've started for cuttings. The reason? Well, it looks…

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,…

February 2016: Week One Update

Hi Lovelies, First and foremost, let me apologize to everyone who left a comment on the last post and I didn't get a chance to respond. I've been having major technical difficulties over here, which I have hopefully resolved. Now that I've done a lot of winter sowing, I feel like the season has started…

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…

November Garden Update

Hi Lovelies, Long time, no see. Well, the leaves have completely fallen here. This means that with the exception of the plants in the hoophouse, the hardy annuals are completely covered beneath a nice layer. While some folks like to rake and rake, I don't, so I just let them be. That's the great thing…

Quick Fall Update

Hi Lovelies, Well, I've been running around trying to get everything in the garden cleaned up while simultaneously taking care of what feels like 1000 other tasks, and I'm feeling quite exhausted! Just thought that I would quickly share a few things I've managed to get completed! Have a great day!

Beginner’s Guide to a Gorgeous Spring Garden

Hi Lovelies, Well, we made it! Day 15 of Blog-tober! If I had known that 31 days of straight blog posts would be this difficult, I'm not sure I would have taken on the task - but, I'm enjoying it nonetheless. With tons of orders of spring seeds and bulbs landing on my front porch…

How to Grow Anemones in Zone 6 (and probably other places, too!)

  Hi Lovelies, Well, well. It's hard to believe this is already my fifth post of October! In many ways, October is the month that I'm doing the most things. I'm planting bulbs (and ordering, lol), looking for bargains to save money for spring, and trying to enjoy the last of the nice weather before…

Guide to Growing Ranunculus

Hi Lovelies, Buckle yourself in, because this blog post is going to be an exciting one. Well, I think it is. If you live in one of those awesome areas where the temperatures are relatively mild and ranunculus grow and overwinter outside without protection, this post probably won't serve as much help. However, if like…

Out with the old, in with the new.

Hi Lovelies! It's that time of week again, and by that I mean - it's raining here and I actually have the time to breathe for a second. It's been another week of orders rolling in, mostly some perennials that I really, really wanted. I'm almost certain that my mail carrier really dislikes me by…
