I added a second grow light a few weeks ago, and my plants took off! I usually have problems with germination, and whatever germinates is leggy and fragile. Not so much now. I'll have to start planting as soon as it's past last frost because they're getting big! Having two lights allows me to have … Continue reading The Garden in My Closet Update
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~!
Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it. I may be 36, but you know what I can't resist doing every Easter? Colored eggs! I don't buy kits; I use food coloring for the dye. You can see in the photo below I couldn't find my egg... wire... thingie. So I used one of … Continue reading Happy Easter! You Know I Did Eggs
Paid of the credit card. Paid of a student loan. Then I feel that part of a tooth is missing. I find out a I need a crown - and I've only had the insurance 7 months. They won't cover crowns until a full year. $1300 out of pocket. They let me split it 50/50 … Continue reading There’s Always Another Bill
Tundra, you are VERY LUCKY that you're cute and we like you. We called the repair shop, but they're still looking for a seat. UGH.
I follow quite a few stock models on Deviant Art and one of the best is SenshiStock who you can find here. Recently I figured out that she has her own page where she sells stock packs. 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!
