a garden blog

Aiden helping water. I have NO idea what the deal is with his shirt. He went in side for something and came out shouting "Aiden do it, Aiden do it" Looking like that.

My Iris's that I transplanted and had no hope of ever blooming...

Tomato's all in a row... mmm.. can't wait!

shelling peas and sugar snap peas. I'm going to plant my pole beans on top of them if I ever get around to it.

My lettuce is thriving this year, and I even have some strawberries growing in there
So the garden is doing well so far. The raspberries are putting on flowers, as are the Marion berries, both promising a good crop. The lettuce is so wonderful to have after a winter of store bought greens and the herbs are going crazy, no picture as I filled my card up but it's on crack or something. I didn't even fertilize it this year, so who knows. I have also put my praying mantis egg sack out to hatch and provide me with free pest control, then again I also feed the birds so I might just be feeding them some tasty little green desert, but I'm hopeful. At the very least if one makes it to adult hood (there are 200 in the sack) then Aiden and I can see it and watch it and it will be worth the 8 bucks I paid. Well, off to water and weed, the story of my garden! happy growing everyone!


  1. Your garden looks wonderful! I can't wait to see it in person! We are practicing camping this weekend, so hopefully all goes well!

  2. You forgot to come up and plant my garden for me. There's still plenty of time. Don't be shy. - Kathleen
