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?…

Exciting News! An Update!

Hey everyone! It's definitely been awhile since I've posted here. In the past, I've mentioned that I've simply outgrown the free version of WordPress and would soon need to upgrade. Well, the good news is that that's finally happening! Woohoo! You can't see me, but I'm totally doing a happy dance. Starting next month (likely),…

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,…

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. For whatever reason, I don't feel like singing songs and wearing shorts yet, though. Anyhow, just wanted to quickly share some captures from the hoophouse and to update…

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…

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…

‘Bordeaux’ Anemone Love Affair

Hi Lovelies, So, it's obviously still early in the season. I'm far from ready to reach my final conclusion about any of the new anemone varieties that I'm trying this year, but after seeing some more 'Bordeaux' open up, I absolutely have to share the pictures with someone! I hope you enjoy! Love to hear…

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…
