More Vlog

I’m not very good at this whole vlog thing, but I’m picking certain things up as I go. Like looking at the camera and not the screen on my ipad. I actually might use my camera next time, since that takes longer videos, and I might avoid the whole splicing videos thing. I’m trying to […]


April has been awful. Like, seriously, it’s been cold, and windy, and I’m almost positive we had more snow in April then we did December-March combined. That may or may not be an exaggeration. I’ve been looking at my “On this Day” posts on Facebook every day, as well as old blog posts, and getting […]

Spring Summer

I love the smell of rain.  We skipped ahead a little to summer, and May brought little rain thus far.  We are getting some much needed rain today, and that on top of the cooler temps feels really good.

Things sort of faded away with some of the chaos that came in my life.  On […]

Spring time

It’s so nice to have the weather be warm and sunny again.  While cleaning out my garden beds isn’t exactly fun, there is a zen like quality to it.  It’s hard to focus on anything other than the task at hand, which is really nice, particularly when there’s a lot on your mind.

Half […]

It begins again…

The first of our crocuses.

Mother nature is angry.  Last week we went from the 20’s to the 60’s and then back down again.  We had two “warm” days, and I managed to get at least one day of garden clean up in.  It’s ugly.  Really ugly.  I had to buy mud boots ugly. […]

Harvest time

Not as big as the Zucs, thank goodness

This weekend, and most of last week has just been super hectic with my mother in the hospital.  Of course, living in the middle of nowhere, the hospital is a good 45 minutes away, which isn’t so bad until you throw in three kids and exhausted […]

Garden progress


I’ve spent the past two days working outside, since the weather has been a little cooler, making it more comfortable. I’m really tired and really sore now, but it’s so worth it.  My veggie bed is looking decent- slow, because of delayed planting, but good.  I’ve spotted some tomatoes, zucchini and yellow squash, […]

Good bye weedville, hello…unfinished patio

I’m mostly feeling better- my nose gets super stuffed at times, which makes it hard to breathe, and make me rather miserable, but for the most part I am back to normal.  Yesterday was cooler and overcast, so it made a good day to work in the garden.

It’s still a bit messy. I’ve […]

Gardening weekend

It’s been a busy weekend.  I’ve been working a few hours each day on weedsville.  It’s going really nice, and I’m ending today with a trip to the store to pick up rocks and more weed mats.  I’m really satisfied with how things are going, even if I had a few “what the heck am […]

Things that grow!

Hardening off my plants, want to get these babies in the ground soon!

I’ve been pretty busy during the day this week.  College classes are done, so my husband is home during the day, which gives me a bit more freedom.  The days have been sunny and rain free, which mean I’ve had some […]
