Had to clip about 3 feet off the side of the front garden for the food truck to fit in our driveway. Now I'm reconfiguring the drip system and pretty soon I'll be putting in tomatoes. I've never done tomatoes in the front because I don't have trellising, but I'm trying some determinate varieties this year so I'm hoping they'll be alright with cages or some other low tech supports. I'm also going to be putting in lots of flowers so hopefully the yard will match the truck soon! 😄
🐝 How cute is my new garden sign. Had a lovely day today, it’s been like over a week now of good days and I’m like hmmm am I just good now? No more down days? What am I doing different? What’s changed? Often bad days follow but I’m really really enjoying these happy days, maybe it’s the sunshine, maybe it’s my babies being more manageable, maybe it’s I’m getting better sleep, maybe it’s because I’m doing more walking or more gardening? Or maybe, it’s just a wave. Whatever it is, I’m making the most of it and using my positivity to try create better habits, improve my environment and routine so that when I’m down again maybe it’s a bit softer. Not sure if any of this caption makes sense, I’ve completely rambled on and in between typing wiped a butt and chased a dog to retrieve a sock soooo... happy days 🤣💜🌸🌿☀️🌈✨🐝💚
Self sowed cilantro! I can’t be more happy 😁 I planted cilantro last year and it went to seed I forgot about it fast forward yesterday I was taking a walk of my garden and saw in one of my salsa container growing cilantro big lush cilantro 🥰 @bakercreekseeds @lady_gardener_ What surprises do you find growing in your garden?
Been off the radar for a few weeks due to illness in my little ones and myself, but I haven’t been totally idle. I’ve been working outside and I’m happy to show a lil bit of my first mint harvest of the year! It’s already been hung up to dry, and won’t be too long before it ends up in a luxurious bar of soap, bath soak, bath bomb, tea— you name it 🌱 . . . Working with dirt and plants has been a lifelong love, passion, and need for me. It is a gift to be able to use the healthy things I grow to nourish my body in so many ways— and it’s amazing to be able to share it with my sweet friends, family, and my growing base of loyal customers. More good stuff and market info to come! . . . #mint#organicherbs#organicgardener#torontourbangrowers#naturalbodycare#shoplocaltoronto#momandpopshop#sageandthistlehandmadegoods
My tomatoes 🍅 are rooting through the bottom of their containers, so I topped the containers off with nutrient dense soil builder. The tomatoes will root where the new soil was placed and the nutrients will leach down to the current roots. . . I normally don’t include how my day goes but I feel like this is worth mentioning. Yesterday my wallet was stolen included with it was $700 cash 💸, 6 credit/debit cards💳 (all now cancelled), my id, fishing🎣 license, house key 🔑and the wallet it’s self was from my trip to Portugal 🇵🇹. The people who stole my wallets charged $500 in the 2 hours after the incident. The police 🚔 were able to retrieve my drivers license but nothing else yet. I had a bad day. And some how I was still able to go to my garden 👩🏻🌾 yesterday and smile 😊 with my dog and dirt on my hands. It will make a bad day a little bit better.
How bare does everything look! Can’t wait for it to all be thick and green and full. Gardens a bit messy as I’m trying to get a few bits done, I’ve got some wood for a brassica net frame, some more bamboo canes to make a few small teepees for things - I’m growing musk melon and a watermelon variety that’s UK hardy - I want to grow vertically to save space but not sure if the plant supports the fruit vertically? My broad beans are up and looking lush, my tomato plants are looking a bit weird not sure if they’re gonna die, my aubergines are incredibly sad with me and I think il lose those also but hey ho. Leeks are looking great now and my munchkin pumpkins are brilliant. I planted my onions are garlic in like March I think and I’m not sure how long they take to grow but super excited if they work as we eat so much garlic and so many onions 🙈 got some more compost to fill up some pots for the front of the house and more round the back of the house to try soften it a little, got a climbing rose yesterday which I’m beyond excited about it’s the sweetest purple colour, il get a pic when I go out, might try train it up the back of the house😍😍😍 gonna finish my brew now, do school run then taking little legs swimming again before a day in the garden in the HOPEFULLY sunshine ☀️ hope everyone has a good Thursday 🌿🌸🌈💜
Her ligger jeg og fjerner ukrudt på et af vores bytte aftaler. Som man kan høre mellem mine banderier, så håber jeg at kødet vi bytter os til er godt. Regnvejr og en upraktisk byboer. 😳 Heldigvis havde vi smukke omgivelser og fuglefløjt.
