Carrots with Personality   39 comments

We love carrots!

In addition to the health benefits of carrots, they also dazzle me. The carrots above look to be dancing under water.




Purple carrots are a garden novelty and taste great.


Lucca is a great little helper!







I found another neat carrot combo.




We have a few more carrots in the garden. I hope they bond before I harvest.


Enjoy your day!

New Potatoes   6 comments

Yay new potatoes!!!

After fretting over the health of our first potato crop, I found about ten pounds of potatoes beneath the soil.  I am so proud to harvest our own potato crop. The second planting of potatoes will be equally exciting.

Enjoy your day!

Outside Monday   8 comments

I love our garden. Our second planting of green beans and potatoes are popping out of the ground.

People say that rhubarb will not grow here due to the lack of a cold winter. I will hope for the best! 

The first tomato must have grown overnight. 

Now for some flowers and critter pics. 

I think I scared this fella.  

The rescued dwarf Japanese maple continues to amaze us. I am so glad we saved this 34-year-old tree.

One of my favorite trees is our young rescue tulip poplar. 

Can you find the butterfly?

Enjoy your day!

2012 Grow and Swap   Leave a comment

I hope y’all are as excited as I am about this year’s Grow&Swap!  The date is Saturday April 14, 2012 from 9AM

until 11AM at the Beal’s Hill community garden next to the Centenary Methodist Church on the corner of Ash and College street.

Here are a few photos from last year’s G&S.

Any left over seeds or plants have a home in the Beal’s Hill community garden.  See you Saturday!

Enjoy your day!

How quickly the garden grows overnight.     The summer squash seedlings are thriving.

   The carrot greens are a tasty treat.

       The yellow and black bug seems to like the camera.

   Soon the blueberries will be in our breakfast bowl.

This is our first crop of potatoes and beans. I planted the second round of potatoes and beans yesterday.

  The spider is content to sit on the Yukon gold potato for a picture.

Enjoy your day!

The Garden   4 comments

The garden will soon be level with rich soil.

 Lasagna layering in the garden is a great way to create productive vegetable growth as the compost continues to decompose.

    We decide one more truck load of top soil will suffice with  Jungle Growth dirt purchased at Lowes.

Hearty grows wishes to our potatoes, red cabbage, brussels sprout, red and sweet carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, rutagaba plants, butter crunch lettuce, red and sweet onions and the asparagus bed!

Otis is a big help!                                             

 The garden is happy. Enjoy your day!
