My dirt came! I ordered potting soil online. Why? It's HEAVY. Because I called my local stores, and I was told POTTING SOIL WAS OUT OF SEASON. Since when is dirt out of season?!? All they had were these tiny bags, and ya'll I needed 16 gallons of this for my planters. So they arrived … Continue reading Grow ALL the Things Update
I took a gamble and put some of the plants from my closet outside this summer. I was worried the squirrels would get them, but I made sure to stop feeding the birds four weeks in advance, and I had no issues other than making sure they didn't get too much wind or rain. Ya'll, … Continue reading Go Sequoias Go!
Recently a prepper blogger I follow had a bunch of giveaways, and one of them was for a vertical planting column from the GreenStalk Vertical Garden company, and I took a look at them. I didn't win the giveaway, but I DID buy two of the planters on steep discount because they were discontinuing the … Continue reading Veggies for The End of the World
Ya'll, there are a LOT of seeds in my storage container, so if you're into that, sit down, relax, and enjoy the shinies. If they're not your thing, just know that I have Lotz of Seedz. ON TO THE SEEDS. These photos include primarily this year and last year's Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds orders. I've … Continue reading My Seeds-for-Next-Year Collection!
I spent the afternoon working through parts of my garden to see if there was anything to harvest! I'm covered in mosquito bites and dirt, but I have a pot full of turnips, a couple beets, and leeks. No photos yet! I also received my first seed order today, so I'll try to get that … Continue reading Oh, the Mosquitoes
Here's the Birthday presents I got that are NOT art supplies, in no particular order. I mean, the biggest one is last because I don't want it to negate the other awesome presents, which I love, but otherwise no order. From dad, window prisms! I have one in the bedroom, but now I can hang … Continue reading Birthday Presents I Adore
It's Friday, and it's time for some plant pictures to finish out my week. I posted before that my tomato plants got hit by the last frost thanks to some VILE CREATURE lifting up my cover and then sleeping on top of them. I didn't tear them out, but I did buy new plants and … Continue reading A Chill Garden Update
We had a freeze during which some vile creature dug under my covers and allowed some of my tomatoes to freeze. These photos are BEFORE that freeze, but the only plants that died were the tomatoes. This is my Dog Deterrent. Tundra has figured out that food comes out of the dirt and has been … Continue reading Belated Garden Update
The weather changed here, and suddenly we were expecting a frost. I was like 'I've got this', and I pulled out the clear table clothes I ordered, the plastic hoops, garden stakes, and a hole punch. I trundled outside and carefully covered up all of my plants during the warmest part of the day. I … Continue reading Oh, Wisconsin
I haven't planted anything outside yet because we aren't even past last average frost yet, but my apricots, currents, and cherry bushes didn't get that memo. They bloomed. I was so excited to see the blossoms since the apricots hadn't made a showing yet! And then the weather predicted a frost. The bushes are too … Continue reading We Had a Frost – Checking Out Survivors
