Quote of the Week

Last week's quote focused on flexibility as a gardener. This week I want to continue to encourage gardeners to always,  Keep growing in life and the garden.

A Little Celebration


This year's rain and cooler temps have really slowed down lots of garden growth this year, and not to mention some stressful situations I allowed to take me away from things I love: gardening, mediating, researching stocks, coloring, reading and enjoying a French film on Fridays for my, Foreign Film Friday.
I might share more later, but until then...let's enjoy the beauty of these sunflowers. The patch might not be the biggest, and what I envisioned, but these are the ones that made it, and I'm celebrating their existence!

Quote of the Week


"Gardeners tend to be the most adaptable of human beings. In fact, gardening....trains you to be flexible, and to find consolations where you can. So the poppies never came up and deer ate the roses? Well, the irises looked great, and the lilacs were fabulous."

Scallions: Full Sun or No?


Picked a few scallions, today. Not very big, but I'm still very proud of them. These were grown in a container on my deck--where I spend several days arranging plants to bask in some sunlight. My backyard is a tree filled backyard that's partially shaded at different times of the day.
As I mentioned earlier, I take the time to move pots around the deck, so all plants can get their time to shine in the sun.
Happy the scallions got their time to shine, don't know if they would've been a bit bigger with full sun, but hey, I'm a first timer and I'm still very proud.

Quote of the Week


I grow plants for many reasons: to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty, or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy on seeing them grow.

Oh Harvest Day


Today was a great harvest day! The plan was to harvest 10 bulbs, but once the digging began, I couldn't stop until reaching 26 bulbs.

Yellow Can Bring a Good Thing


The garlic's looking like it's ready to harvest. A few are starting to lean over and the majority of them are starting to experience a bit of yellowing of two of their lower leaves.
There's your gardening clues of the day--happy gardening!
