When Life Gives You Lemons.....

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
Or in this case when the storm knocks down the sunflowers, bring the sunshine indoors.
Until next time.....

Dear June


Dear June,

I wonder what you have in store for me. May managed to freak me the fpck out, starting with two weeks of no rain and having to water the young garden, followed by two weeks of almost non stop rain; ending with a downpour so heavy that all the gardens looked like lakes when all was said and done.
It looks like everything might be OK, but it's still too early to tell. I ended up digging up all of our pepper plants and putting them back in their pots because the round bed was holding water and the plants would have died. I'm hoping to transplant them back this weekend now that the sun is out.
A lone deer decided to check out the garden and nibbled on a few corn seedlings. I put up the 'deer fence' similar to the one that I used last year and so far, so good. Knock on wood. 
Chicken wire went up to protect the beans from rabbits. Hopefully groundhogs too, if one show up.
I love getting up every morning and checking in on the different beds. So much to do this time of year and I love every minute of it.
Until next time.....

Hey May!

I can not believe that it's May already! We're knee deep into Spring gardening with 7 days of sunshine (and heat) ahead. I'm planning to plant the garden this week. I tilled the gardens once and will do so again this weekend. After hauling compost and tilling yet again, we'll be good to go. Now I just need to figure out what's going to go where this year.

Until next time.....

Garden Roundup ~ April 28

We've had a pretty wet spring so far. I'm (im)patiently waiting to till the garden. I think I'll be able to do so tomorrow. There's plenty to keep us busy until then. It's still too early to plant or transplant the summer vegetables. The spring seeds that were planted are coming up slowly but surely. It feels good to be gardening. It feels good to be dead tired and dirty. And it feels good to be blogging again.
Until next time.....
