DIY Seed Pots

I told you I bought seeds yesterday – and I’m hoping I’m not too late – but I already have some seeds left from last year (and may go buy some more this weekend).  But I have too many seeds and not enough of anything to start them in. Rather than go spend more money …

Time to Plan the Garden!

After waiting a bit too long because of all the other things going on, I've made my seed purchases for the garden this morning! (I'm a little late, I know) Now I just have to figure out where on earth I'm going to be starting all these! We've got a plan this year, and I'm going …

Back in the Game!

Its been a busy couple of months! We have finally moved in and unpacked the house, had the housewarming party, and even gotten the garden going (we started that before the house was even unpacked, actually.) Now I just have to get back into cooking and making things again. I've been working on it - …

Sprouts and Spring!

I ordered seeds. I know, I said I wouldn't. I lied. I want to garden, and knowing that there is a house in our very near future makes that urge even worse. I've come to terms with the fact that I'll probably still be in pots this year, but its okay, because they'll be in …

Kitchen waste to … Garden?

I watched a show on TV the other day (I forget what Create TV program it was) and they were talking about growing food from kitchen waste. I've seen bits about it here and there, and last weekend Brent and Becky's had a free class about it (which I missed due to a screwed up …

Recycled Pots

A friend brought me this Pot Maker the other day, knowing my love of gardening. Its actually a really nice idea, and a great way to make homemade biodegradable seed pot. The whole process is really simple. You need scissors, the Pot Maker, and newspapers. That's it. You just cut some strips that are around …

The Garden Begins!

So I've taken photos of this year's garden. Our tiny porch(es) have been overrun again. I've got a problem. Of course, I can admit it, but it isn't changing anything. 🙂 Here's what I've got planted right now - sage rosemary basil purple basil mint bloody sorrel chives flat leaf parsley thyme lavender rosemary dill …

When you just can’t say no…

I'll be posting about the home garden this year tomorrow. I have to take some photos tonight. But in the  meantime, I've got another project I've taken on at work. For seven years I've worked in this building, and there's been this huge, concrete barren courtyard in the middle of the building. No one goes …

Trip to Charlottesville and sauerkraut canning!

This past weekend was a trip out to WV again to can the sauerkraut we'd made earlier in the summer at my Aunt and Uncle's. Of course, I wasn't expecting snow on Halloween, but it was still a great trip! My aunt cans all the time, so it was good to get a primer in …
