Oh my goodness, the spring flora is busting out everywhere! The Dogwood trees and Lilac bushes are in full bloom and things are greening up quickly. Sunday was perfect weather to be outside and we just happened to have lunch right across the street from a greenhouse...

Signs of spring are popping up everywhere! Bright yellow forsythias and daffodils are finishing up, as are the Bradford pears, the tulips are up, lilacs are blooming and the Redbud trees and Quince trees bloomed in perfect time for Easter. I was able to spend some...

Well April is finally here! We had a full moon this week and the weather was warm and sunny over the weekend, and a little windy a couple of days. I think we are supposed to hit a low in the 30s some time this week so we aren’t finished with winter yet. Our last...

Well it is real hard to think about gardening when the ground is covered in snow, it is zero degrees outside and the wind has been howling for 4 days. The official groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, sure put the whammy on us with six more weeks of winter. I hope they...

Well unfortunately the groundhog saw it’s shadow last week so we are in for six more weeks of winter. This week is certainly proof of that! And not just a day or two, but the whole week is going to be freezing!! Poop! I hate cold weather! So I would recommend spending...

We are quickly moving toward early spring and that means it won’t be long and we can plant some early spring vegetables! That’s right, our break from the vegetable garden is about over. Isn’t it wonderful? So there are a lot of early spring vegetables that can be...

Well the first month of 2021 is almost over. Where the heck does the time go? The good side is, the days are getting longer as the earth continues its orbit around the sun and it won’t be long and we can be in the garden again. Meanwhile, we need to take care of the...
