Our Pumpkin Contest Entry

After waiting so long for our seeds, we did nothing special, just threw them in the organic soil that’s fertilized with organic guinea pig “beans” (yes, our cavies eat organic) and added water and love! So far, two weeks later, we had 10/12 sprout in Zone 5, update uploaded soon!

Picking Flowers for Violet Syrup and a Tick Rant

A sea of violets…  I was so thrilled to realize my whole back yard is edible!  I’ll be playing with a dandelion recipe soon.  This didn’t keep me from being careful.  We have guinea hens on order, and are working on fencing in the back yard.  In the meantime, it’s leggings and boots for me.  I’m SICK of ticks!

My Beloved Dirt Delivery

I never would have dreamed I would be so happy about dirt, but I am :). Ryan, of Grasshopper Gardens here in Upstate NY (http://www.grasshoppergardens.com/) totally hit the mark!! I am so pleased. I will be a bit busy over the next week, carting that to the garden! I will be sore but smiling.
