Well I ended up making a mistake in my garden. Maybe it isn’t quite a “mistake” but moreso a miscalculation. Earlier this year when I was starting seeds I read somewhere that you should plan on planting double the zucchini plants then you think you need/want. The reason being is that while zucchini is easy to grow it is also susceptible to diseases, bugs, worms, etc.
This past winter I ordered some grow tubs from Garden’s Alive to grow some container garden carrots. I was so excited today to finally get my carrots planted in one of them! I just love container gardening! Oh and to make it even better the seeds I got to plant were a free gift from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds with one of the orders I placed in early Spring. From my understanding Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds sends a free bonus packet of seeds with every order…how fun!
I’ve heard of Junebearing strawberries (which is the only thing my dad grows), I’ve heard of everbearing strawberries (in my opinion seedy and bland in flavor), but it was not until a few months ago I found out about day-neutral strawberries. More specifically Seascape Strawberries. Just the name alone made me want to do more research and to try these strawberries in my garden!CONTINUE READING
It’s almost maple tapping time which means it’s time to gather all your maple tapping supplies! Actually we are late. We are very late as usually we have had trees tapped for at least a week by now. But this New England weather has been down right brutal so we are behind. So what a better way to use this extra time then to make sure I have all my supplies in order!
