I planted four apricot trees in spring of 2014, and I only lost one of them in the years since. I've planted a variety of fruiting plants on my property, but only the apple trees have blossomed and made fruit so far. Last year, there were five or six blossoms, and I was delighted, but … Continue reading My Apricot Trees Are Blooming!
This last weekend, we (my husband and brother and I) took a day and pushed my garden a little closer to the state I want it to be in. I didn't clear all of the beds yet, but WOW. Adding edging and mulch makes a HUGE difference. Tundra was very interested in the proceedings. I … Continue reading We’ve Worked in the Garden
When I started this blog, I thought I'd push for three posts a week and see how long I could manage to continue it. I set a schedule to help keep me accountable. I sit down every Sunday and schedule three posts for the week. They're posted Monday, Wednesday, Friday at 5pm, which is kind … Continue reading 600 Posts~!

And a new item on that page is her shiny new stock cards found on this page. Here's … Continue reading Sketching Resources
At this point, the only pot that doesn't have baby plants in it is the asparagus. So! Photos: The two tan pots have lettuce in them - I'm going to try growing it inside this year so it doesn't bolt so easily. The leggy one is brussels sprouts, and I'm not sure what I can … Continue reading Seedlings! An Update
I have a variety of plants in my closet right now. Most of them are seedlings, but a few are larger potted plants such as my sequoia, my coffee, or my tea plants. I have the grow light high enough that they can get light, but it was making my seedlings kinda leggy. So I … Continue reading A Second Grow Light!
We have been working on paying off my student loans. I had three - two that are consolidated into a federal loan and one through a private company. The federal loan ones are $24,000 and $9,000. You can't separate payments out for them, and they're in forbearance due to the Covid situation, so we focused … Continue reading Smallest Student Loan Paid Off!
