It has been a bit difficult the last 12 months but I am trying. Lots of stuff to catch up with all of you. I am not dead nor have I given up I just got lazy and my juggling skills were just a bit lacking for life and posting. Sorry, I really dropped the ball and I don’t think ignoring my Blog was the best answer! If we are lucky, we live and learn. Just some quick updates . Mom is still living with me as housing prices are a tad high and she is waiting for “DAD” to get her off the Mortgage contract. Yeah it’s a long story but this is a quick update so “No Drama” is allowed.
The garden is looking awesome and I managed to start plants this year. Celery seeds are small rascals and you should be careful how you start them. Mom says we will need tweezers just to separate the plants. Never let a person with poor tactile skills start your pots for celery or any other small seeds! Over all Mom and I are doing darn good. Mom is enrolled in a Master gardeners class and I added a few more raised beds. I started a 3 sisters garden last year and it failed. This year I have new beds in the making for the 3 sisters garden. I’m also trying out a new drip irrigation system. Early days on trying a new system but the theory looks sound. We got a new dog and he is young and a terrier. He has been great as he makes Mom giggle with his antics.
I added 2 new raised beds in the backyard and went hardcore adding edible beds in the front yard beds. Early days for the “Cole” crops but so far so good! Pics of the dog and pics of the garden.
Mom calls him Jackson and he is devoted to her. He is a very sweet little terrier and not yappy.
I’m building new firewood racks and loading up on fire wood. This last winter was brutal. So I’m looking at buying a couple of garbage cans and filling the with sand and salt for next winter. I thought I was prepared for winter I was wrong!
Sort of a short post to say I am back but I should have more3 pics and plans for what I am trying to do in the future.
