  • 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 every day, I thought it would be fun to talk about some of the easiest ways to add some spring color to your life. Spring is one of my absolute favorite times of the year. Being able to finally thaw out and spend time outside is such a precious gift. However, when this was all…

  • Building a Hoophouse on a Budget

    Hi Lovelies, Now that all of the zinnia beds are gross, and dahlias are in danger of being wiped out by frost at anytime, I’ve finally gotten around to starting to think about fixing up my sweet little hoophouse. Since I’m currently a city-dweller, there’s absolutely no possible way that I’d have room for a legitimate unheated house that you’d find on a real farm. Not to mention – the money. As someone who sold the vast majority of their belongings on eBay last year to even make starting this dream remotely possible, getting a real hoophouse will just have to stay on my wishlist for awhile. I’ve seen quite…

  • 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 things turn dark and muddy for the rest of the year. In this post, I’ll be talking about anemones! Like many of the flowers that I’ve now come to love, I really wasn’t that impressed by anemones. I mean, yeah, they looked fine in pictures, but they seriously weren’t something that I was going to…

  • 5 Easy Annuals For Your First Cutting Garden

    Hi Lovelies, Well, folks. It’s not been a good morning. It’s still cold and rainy, and I woke to find that I’d somehow managed to chip my tooth in my sleep? Ugh. Oh well, Blog-tober must go on. As you may or may not know, my goal is to make a post somewhere on the blog everyday this month – so if you’ve missed the first two posts, feel free to browse around. Now, onto the good stuff. One thing that I hear on Instagram pretty frequently is that people seem to “dream” about fields of flowers and whatnot. The fact of the matter is, you don’t need a giant…

  • 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 me, you are a persian buttercup obsessed gardener in zone 6 (almost 7), then this post is dedicated to you! If you aren’t acquainted with my dear friend Mr. Ranunculus, I suggest you pause and make a quick Google search in a new tab. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. I know, right. They’re totally swoonworthy, aren’t…
