Hello everybody! After weeks of unseasonably cold and damp weather, I have finally had the chance to plant my greens! I chose a lettuce mix, spinach, and kale. Over the past couple of weeks, I have been buying flowers and planters, and any supplies I need to start a garden on my balcony. My parentsContinue reading “Greens are in!”
Choices, choices, too many choices! And some impatience, too. It’s only January, and I am already dreaming about my garden for this year. I want to grow and preserve more of my own food this year. But, I live in an apartment, and my balcony gets morning shade and afternoon sun. The vegetables that IContinue reading “Deciding what to plant this year”
About 13 months ago, Sherlock and I moved out of my parent’s house, and into a small apartment in town. Unfortunately, that meant I had to give up my garden space. I want to have a huge garden someday, but it will have to wait until I am able to buy a home. I wishContinue reading “Indoor gardening with the Aerogarden”
My little tomatoes have been green for a very long time, seems like it’s been at least a month. But now they are turning red and are getting ready to harvest! I can’t wait to start eating them or canning them!
A few days ago, I checked on my garden, and noticed that one of my tomato plants is finally growing some cherry tomatoes!

The strawberry plant is slowly growing and producing more strawberries. I got 5 berries from it yesterday, and they were delicious! But it’s not producing many berries all at once, so I will have to freeze some of them so I can collect enough to make ice cream and other recipes. The peas have producedContinue reading “Garden Update, June 23rd 2020”
When all of this crap that’s been happening this year started a few months ago, I discovered that I really need to work on some survival skills. That includes growing and preserving my own food, just in case the economy collapses from the effects of COVID-19, and the grocery stores in town go out ofContinue reading “Let the canning begin!”
Hello! Yesterday, in my post about my first strawberry, I mentioned that I thought my peas were not doing well. Well, I was wrong! This peapod seemed to magically appear overnight. I can’t wait to taste fresh peas for the first time ever, and to start canning them!
Hello everybody! I can’t believe it’s been over two weeks since my last post! It’s been a busy couple of weeks (I will post about that later). Anyway, a few weeks ago, I wrote about the strawberries starting to grow in my garden. Well, today I checked on my garden, and the first one wasContinue reading “Fresh strawberries arriving now!”
I bought this strawberry plant a few weeks ago. I kept it indoors until all danger of frost had passed, and planted it in a large wood pot last week. I checked on it today, and discovered the first flower! Soon I will have a bowl full of fresh and delicious strawberries!
