brag

The first squashes to accompany a few cucumbers, hot peppers and tomatoes, are they great or what? I picked them a little early, but there are more coming soon. There is also a baby eggplant that I can’t wait to see and the peppers keep producing faithfully. Read more…

humbly grateful…

On 18, Jul 2012 | No Comments | In edibles | By All Year Garden

After the beetles ate my emerging pepper plants to the ground before they had a chance to grow the third set of leaves I decided it might be a good idea to replace them with already grown plants, since starting a new set from seed at this time would have been an exercise in futility. Read more…

summer border

Sometimes the camera works little unexpected wonders. It didn’t rain in a while and even though I water it religiously, my garden is not at its best. It took a little break from blooming, the heat and the drought took their toll. You couldn’t tell from this photograph, though, I find it hard to believe myself. Read more…

something new

When you have a perennial garden finding a plant that you never seen before is quite unusual. The perennials in your climate zone are familiar, you probably had them in your garden for years, and the ones you don’t grow are the ones that didn’t thrive for whatever reason.

With great excitement I want to present to you the first tomato of the year! Supersweet 100, I can’t believe how productive these little cherry tomato hybrids are. This particular plant sprouted from the seeds of the fruit that fell on the ground last year. Read more…

chameleon, my lovely

Oh, how I love this rose! When I bought it it bore the name “Unknown”. After having it in the garden for several years I started to understand that the growers couldn’t figure out which of its many faces was the real one. Every year it bears different blooms. If you don’t believe me, check out the second, the third and the fifth images in the roses’ slide show. Read more…

first rose of the year

On 03, May 2012 | No Comments | In roses | By All Year Garden

Roseraie de l’Hay was the first rose to bloom this year. Many more to come, though, by the number of buds waiting to open. All the rose bushes are absolutely covered in them, it looks like it’s going to be a very good year for roses, we’re having the June bloom in May. Read more…

the home farming project

A while back I mentioned that a very small patch of dirt with good soil, sufficient water and at least eight hours of sunlight a day can produce a surprisingly large yield. Last year I didn’t measure the quantity of veggies, so this year I decided to start a little project. Read more…

Create a perennial shade garden for zone 5

On 29, Mar 2012 | No Comments | In shade | By All Year Garden

Shade is not created equal. Most plants recommended for full shade usually don’t like at least three of the six types described in this article. Plants recommended for part shade will most likely thrive only in the last two. Full sun plants can be very happy in dappled shade if they bloom before May or after October. Read more…

winter harvest

What a wonderful surprise! When I got home, I found my hot peppers in bloom and covered in fruit. I’m so excited about my winter harvest, I can’t hardly wait for the peppers to turn red, at which time I will post more pictures. Read more…
