Well, it certainly looks like winter outside. All the trees are naked of leaves, the grass is brown and the vegetation is just ugly. Thank goodness we have green plants in the house !! So I know it’s tempting to get out there and remove everything ugly from the...

Well, we are having typical January weather, cold overnight and mornings and occasional 55 to 60 daytime temp. Too darn cold for me to be in the garden for long. I did find some cilantro thriving in one of the gardens at The Choke so I made some tasty shrimp ceviche...

Happy 2021 Grand Lakers! Well fellow gardeners, we have winter weather ahead of us and it could be extremely cold or it could be mild. One thing is for sure, the days will be getting longer and before you know it early spring will be upon us! So when the gardens are...

I can’t believe it is the last day of 2020! Some say it is the worst year ever, but there were some good sides to offset Covid. It was almost a perfect summer for gardening and it lasted late into fall so we enjoyed more vegetables from our gardens this year than any...

Wow! Wasn’t the snow last Sunday beautiful? We certainly didn’t get as much as the Tulsa area, but we got enough to get us in the Christmas mood. I love poinsettias at Christmas, but another favorite of mine is Christmas Cactus. They are easy to care for and provide...

Well now that we covered frosts and freezes we have had several overnight temperatures in the 30’s and that is just really darn cold! Even when we get warmer days, the nights are freezing! And now that we have had several freezing nights the gardens are looking pretty...

December! What????? And the weather is feeling like it. Mother Nature handed out a pretty rough freeze in our area this week. Yep, the green healthy foliage on my potatoes is done. But the potatoes are nice and safe under the soil line. So what is the difference...

Well, another month is slipping by us and before you know it, Christmas will be here!! It looks like we are going to have a little cooler weather this week, maybe no more 70’s for the rest of the year. But not too cold yet. So with the nicer weather last week, I...

Holy cow, I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week! We are back to warming temperatures again this week, so it is hard to feel like it is November in the first place. I’m not complaining…we’ve had our cold days, but then it gets warm again, crazy! So I guess if you...
