Mid August Garden Update!

We're in a holding pattern in the garden right now. Not because nothing is happening... but because everything is happening (it's just not all coming into the kitchen yet)!   We still have snap peas and beans coming in the door on a regular basis, as well as kale and basil.

Slow to Harvest

While we are not new to gardening, we are new to this space. And while we have planted a bazillion seeds, they haven't all germinated. And while it feels as though this property has been our home for ages, it's really only been a few months. So, I have to remember that, though our first real harvests are just beginning…

Taking Stock & Tallying Up the Harvests

2014 has proven to be a challenging year for us in the garden department. We started out with the best of intentions and a bazillion seeds and ended up with failed germination rates, poor purchased and gifted transplants, loads of distractions, pest problems up the wazoo, and a sudden (though happy) move just a few short weeks ago.

Herbs, Herbs, Everywhere Herbs!

Herbs, Herbs, Everywhere Herbs!

Welp, last Friday I finally spent some real, glorious, much needed time out in the garden! Sprout happily gnawed on fresh beans and I just puttered around until we were both hot, hungry and tired. It was absolutely divine! During my time outside, I finally decided to give our poor herb bed a little TLC. I really hadn't realized how…
