Growth in pictures

Composting.... Fireplace Ash

Since I haven't ever gardened at the same time I had a wood stove or fireplace, I never needed to look this up, but I was curious tonight if our ashes from the fireplace would be beneficial, or at least safe, for the compost. The next door…

Cherry tomatoes: Spam me!

I remembered today that I promised my 13 year old I'd grow cherry tomatoes next time. Well, it's next time :lol and I'm not sure what kind to get. Territorial Seed has a pretty big selection I think, any suggestions? (link goes to the cherry…

True leaves and other growth, and mud

Thinking ahead

The good kind of tired

Most days I'm tired but it's not a satisfying kind of tired. Today however, hoo-boy. My to do list was fairly simple: mow the lawn and transplant the tomatoes and blueberries. But what I got done was a bit more: Mowed the backyard …
