The New Rain Barrels

| May 17, 2012

ХудожникподаръциLast fall Papa and I collected a few rain barrels. We hoped to give the plants rain water as much as possible, and lower our water bill in the process. This designer model was a Mother’s Day gift from D3 a few years back, and it has been getting a workout ever since it arrived. […]

Worth the Wait

| May 23, 2010

A few years ago, I wanted to have more perennial plants, and reduce the amount I spend for annuals in our flower beds. I purchased the two outside plants, and the center one was a gift from my daughters. They have been in three places in the yard, and I think we finally found a […]

Berry Patch

| May 19, 2010

D3 planted a small raspberry patch at the edge of the garden a few years ago. It is a lot of work, but we get quite a few berries from the bushes. They are looking strong this spring. If you strain your eyes, you will see my cabbage and broccoli at the right. It is […]

Bring It On!

| April 19, 2010

Spring is the most beautiful time in Michigan, and also a time of much fun and work for gardeners. I am not a “real” gardener, but I do enjoy my flowers, and we get a lot of good out of our vegetable garden. I started a few plants vegetable indoors this year, and now I […]

City of Troy Recycling

| January 5, 2010

I learned something today, and I wanted all my friends who live in the City to  know about it. I had some CFC bulbs to take to the recycling center. I called to get the phone number and found that the City pays a fee for each trip I make to the center to deposit […]

What Did We Do Before Curbside Recycling?

| October 28, 2009

I remember when I lived up north, in a rural area. It was tough to recycle, real tough. We had to save everything, and wait for the Saturday the recycling center was open. On the appropriate day, we would load up the car/truck, and drive to the appointed place. everything had to be deposited in […]

Morning Glorious

| December 4, 2008

I know your remember my arbor, I cut down and dug out the roses and planted Morning Glories this year. On July 8, they were started up. You can see the twine I added to give they somewhere to climb. On August 15, the thing was ready to take over the world. We couldn’t walk […]

Ike, One More Time

| September 24, 2008

Well, things have improved on the coast, but there is a long way to go.  I was looking around this morning, and found this.  Oh, and check this out, also.  After you read the articles, keep praying for the area. Thank you.

Cluck Old Hen

| July 30, 2008

Papa and I went out to the garden last night, and picked many cucumbers and zucchini. We also cut a lot of lettuce, and pulled a few carrots and beets. I picked one cabbage to eat, I enjoy slaw this time of year. I was able to give some cucumbers away, but we are overrun […]

Garden Troubles

| June 11, 2008

I’ve had more problems than usual with my vegetable garden this year.  We had to replant the lettuce and the carrots.  The beets came up pretty spotty.  A few of our tomatoes suffered frost damage, and some tomatoes just died, don’t know why.  To top it all off, a few days ago, 12+ broke off […]
