    Everything’s Coming Up Vegetables

    It’s the beginning of June, and I’m finally seeing the fruits, or should I say, vegetables, of my early spring efforts. I started seeds for the first time in late winter indoors, under grow lights. That was a fun distraction from the gray cloudy days in the Pacific NW area I live in. So neat […]

    The Promise Of A Garden To Come

    If you’ve been following my new blog posts since the beginning of this year, maybe you may recall that I’ve got a “new construction” yard.  One of those with SO much possibility, and SO much work to be done, just to get it ready for the actual FUN kind of gardening. You know, the kind […]

    The Oyas Are In!

    I recently ordered some of the Oyas we are selling by our partner, GrowOya.  We’ve been very excited as a company to work with GrowOya, not only because the products are so great, but the team that leads the company is pretty cool. Josh McWilliams, Kenny Torrance, and Brant Cheetham are focused on community gardening, utilizing water […]

    I’m so excited that Spring has finally (officially) arrived. I’ve been looking forward to working on my mostly unfinished backyard, and my new raised garden beds. We’ve had some early warmth here in the Puget Sound region in March, but the soil still hasn’t warmed up to a consistent 50 degrees. I’ve mentioned in past […]

    Spring Planning

    Spring is most definitely here. Not necessarily by the date on the official calendar, but it’s here none the less. Love that part about Mother Nature. She pretty much does exactly as she pleases, regardless of our ongoing need to try to predict and tame her. I’ve been busy busy busy! Luckily, with a brand new […]

    Mow the Lawn

    Today was one of those days, where each task I worked to accomplished seemed to take twice as long as it should, and was more frustrating than I’d anticipated.  I’d had high hopes for my task list today; I was going to accomplish so much! Ha. I can at least say that I started my […]

    Introducing the Guilty Gardener – Better Late Than Never!
