Mini Blue Poppies

As I was cutting back the perennials for winter I discovered a mass of tiny Himalayan Blue Poppies growing underneath. It is going to freeze any night now, so these guys don’t have a chance.

Lettuce Towers

My lettuce is growing into towers, it still tastes good.

Garden Tomatoes

I also tried to grow tomatoes outdoors (I don’t have a green house). We have lots of these little babies, most are still green except for these.

Garden Corn

I tried corn this year, so far we have two small ones. I wonder how they will taste?

Nasties and Geraniums

My nasturtiums still haven’t bloomed, frost is just around the corner. Don’t know why they haven’t bloomed?

Asiatic Lilies

The Asiatic Lilies are in full bloom right now in the perennial garden along the front porch. So beautiful!

Perennial Garden

Scorched Hansa Rugosa

We had a pretty good heat wave last week and as a result my Roses suffered from lack of water. Generally the lawn sprinklers get the roses, but one tall rosebush blocked the water from the others. So we cut back the dead branches and leaves and watered heavily, I know they will survive but […]

Vege Garden 2018

We are trying some new plants this year, outdoor tomatoes and corn. Can’t wait. We are already having salads from the lettuce, I’m growing four kinds.

Seriously Gorgeous Sunset

Wow, we’ve had some seriously gorgeous sunsets lately.

Ready for Winter

With the help of three wonderful women; Rachel, Patty, and JoAnn, I was able to finish getting the yard ready for winter. We cut back perennials, pulled weeds, and cleaned up. Yay, a big job done. Thank you my lovely women friends. The rain forecast for the whole week did not materialize, it was a […]

Rain Forecast for all Week

I’m glad we got the last of the garden harvested this morning just before the rain began, and it is coming down hard right now. The potatoes are drying on newspaper in the detached garage, the carrots are stored in buckets of sand and we are eating the few beets that are left. I froze […]

Fireweed Fall

The wildflower Fireweed, is beautiful throughout all of the seasons. The leaves have turned all shades of yellow, orange and red this fall, and adds rich color to the yard.

Rose Tree Of China in the Fall

One of the more spectacular fall colored plants in my yard is the Rose Tree of China. I planted several in the yard out by the lake and the colors this year are gorgeous!

From Green To Gold

The neighbors lot next to our fenced garden is filled with Paper Birch trees changing from green to gold. We needed a 7′ fence around the garden because moose love to hang out in the woods next door, and were feasting on our veges. Moose can jump a fence lower than 7′, this one has […]

Cutting Back Perennials

Bob sat on his walker and helped me a bit yesterday, we are cutting back all the perennials for winter. It will take two more days to get the job done.

Tearing Down the Pea Vines

Time is of the essence to ready the yard for winter. Yesterday I tore down all the pea vines, there were still some good peas on them so Princess puppy and I munched raw peas while I worked. Princess is a vegetarian puppy, she loves raw carrots and peas.

Frost Kill

And, it begins….the first casualty of Fall, my Asiatic Lilies are toast.

Last Color Before the Frost

We had a light frost last night, but any time now we will be hit with the big freeze! The flower pot is still struggling to stay in bloom, we shall see how long this lasts.

Veges 2017

The garden has reached maturity, I’m picking Snap Peas and pulling Carrots almost daily. Some of the Potatoes are large enough to dig up, we had two last night and they are very tasty! The Squash is beginning to mature, and I’ve already harvested all the Broccoli, Cauliflower and Brussels Sprouts. All in all the […]
