Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. If you come looking for only information on birds, you will go away unsatisfied. If you come here looking for just gardening posts, you'll be disappointed, too. Finally if books bring you here, I'm an intermittent commenter on the books I read though I do list them in a sidebar. Notice the ETC in my heading and that covers when and what I choose to post. Leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so.
There are many things to love about my house, but one of my favorite aspects is being able to look outside at ground level. Our house is all on one level so that is easy to do. From my study I see the pond garden. From the bedroom wing the perennial garden.
There's nothing as nice as waking in the morning and looking out to see what has opened that day.
Sarah looks out over the rain barrel into the perennial bed. The herb bed is on the left.
Out the master bedroom we get the full view. This is looking to the left.
I have had a very slow growing, unproductive vegetable garden this year. I'm almost embarrassed to share these photos. I imagine others have had the same weather issues but I haven't seen such straggling results as mine. But here goes.
Two types of spinach planted at the beginning of March - when it was warm. First harvest last week.
Purchased broccoli plants.
Garlic is the best grower, planted last fall.
Three beds of snow peas, planted at different times. I was harvesting last year at this time.
Blueberries are flowering.
First harvest of spinach and over wintered lettuce. I didn't show you the lettuce beds because they were the worst. My two rows of carrots? No sign of them after first germination.
