We’ve been working on our garden expansion.  See here.  We finally finished the paths and beds, which was a huge project.  I enjoyed the squats and lifting around our sandstone pavers to make the paths.  We also added a compost/dirt blend which seemed to be a good choice.  Getting things ready for the plants to [...]

My brother and his family bought this sweet little yellow house.  Their yard is amazing,  full of dwarf fruit trees, herbs, and berries.  Last time we were at their place, we dug up some of the raspberry shoots and transplanted them into our yard.  We wrapped them in newspaper and a plastic bag to keep the roots moist before [...]

You probably remember this post where I  started some seeds indoors.  Now, these little plants are big and I had to move them downstairs with their own window.  We ran out of room in my kitchen.  They seem to be doing well down there, the tomato leaves are turning a bit yellow, but I’ve read that if it’s the original [...]
