My seedling nursery

I had my seedlings under grow lights last night to give them a boost. The sun has been hidden for awhile. I put them back in the window this morning for whatever daylight they can pick up. They look a bit spindly so I pruned the Nasturtiums back (tallest on left, below), but made sure […]

Good morning

When I looked out the window this morning I saw that winter was spitefully refusing to leave. I laugh at it because I know it’s beat, one way or another. I’m certain that summer is coming. The floor is cool in the living room so I’m making a fire in the wood cook stove. There’s […]

The Foreboding River

 Right from start I was adventuresome, and curious. My parents took me as a young crawler down to the big river with them to wash their car. That wouldn’t happen much these days, huh?

I’ve planted the Supersweet Corn

As I was saying, Hubby keeps me busy, but all I have to do is suggest that I have to plant the corn, and he’ll allow any time needed. Once we tasted the Supersweet corn fresh out of the garden, there is no option but to grow it. I am especially surprised that I can […]

What’s for Supper?

I just love eating what I have grown or made myself. Tonight’s supper is Deer (Venison sounds more culinary pleasing) Rib Steak. We didn’t grow it, of course, but we hunted it, butchered it, etc. I put my own BBQ sauce over the top. I made homemade French Fries (I have my own ketchup recipe-extra spicy) and […]

So excited about new plants!

  I have spring fever now that my new little seedlings have come through the soil! I grow all my own plants (or try to) from seeds I’ve collected from the last year. Now that’s starting from scratch! I don’t have a ‘real’ greenhouse, just a bay window that I installed with no light filters in […]
