It seems to be a great year for roses, as you can see from the picture, so I am going to brag.

An update on what’s going on in the garden. This year I started most plants from seed and bulbs which means two things. Read more…

The long awaited moment finally arrived: I started the vegetable garden for 2013. Among the lessons learned from last year the most important one was that veggies are hungry plants Read more…

With the end of the season fast approaching, I wanted to make a few preliminary comments about the micro farm. Of course some veggies are still in progress and I won’t get to record them until the garden winds down completely for the year Read more…

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…

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…

Oh, how I love this rose! When I bought it it bore the name “Unknown”.
