And I thought I might not get cucumbers this year because of the cold spring and then the groundhog catastrophe! 💁🏻♀️
Zucchini, on the other hand, not so happy for me this year. Ya win some, ya lose some 🤷🏻♀️
Jeff’s been itchin’ for my homemade pickles so looks like the universe listened 😁
Feeling so off this week 🙇🏻♀️…
Last week I was on fire but this one I feel just drained in every sense of the word. Physically, emotionally and spiritually exhausted 🙅🏻♀️.
All’s well in my personal life, so there’s nothing I can attribute it to there, but the Danforth shooting so close by + the impending full moon + longest lunar eclipse this century will see (plus a lot of stress leading up to the closing on our new home) I’m sure has gotten this sensitive empath feeling all the energy and emotions and just wanting to be horizontal.
I think I’m fighting something off too, because all my body wants to do is eat comforting foods and sleeps lots and nothing in my body feels right.
I took a personal day yesterday and did just that, but today I’m trudging through with the glorious vision of doing absolutely nothing later on tonight.
Hopefully in a few days I’ll feel back to my, still sensitive, but more peppy self.
How are you feeling this week?
More blooms 🌸🌸🌸!
This is the time of year when it seems there’s a new bloom every day. And since I grew them all from seed, I never know exactly what colour I’ll get… every time it’s such a nice surprise!
Today this deep bubblegum pink zinnia popped open in a planter I designed in the front yard and greeted me this morning.
So beautiful ✨
My deck-top ‘reclaimed bookshelf’ raised bed got off to a rocky start this year (if you’ll recall, Larry the groundhog had a big feast and pretty much cleared it🤦🏻♀️) but I replanted all new veggies and as you can see, they’re doing very well!
In this bed you’ll find:
•baby dill cucumbers
What’s your favorite edible to grow?
And the harvest of the fall 2017 planted garlic is complete.
Overall, it went better than I expected, considering I planted them in the nosebleed section of my garden (aka the bed that gets the least amount of light and water that nothing did well in last year🤨) and I didn’t feed them once. (I recently learned they are heavy feeders, oops 😬).
It was my very first year growing garlic and though some of my bulbs are kinda dinky, I’d say overall it was a success.
I grew 6 varieties of organic, beginner-friendly garlic and the two that thrived (based on biggest bulbs) were Ivan and Music. If you try growing garlic, I’d suggest starting with these!
Now, these babies will hang in my kitchen area for about 3 weeks to cure so they can be stored for the upcoming months.
I expect 0 visits from vampires 🧛♂️ for the next 3 weeks.
Do you grow garlic?
