Well, This Blog post will be kind of short. I was having issues with the City and my other property. Getting on me bout the wood and things in the yard from the Previous house I demolished, took me a few years to get the help needed to get things cleaned up. Now that everything is cleaned up, All I got to worry about is getting 2 mounds of dirt leveled out and rolled out before next years growing season. So on a good note, Everything is coming together nicely, Yard is cleaned up, Woo...

Allotment Progress Updates #3: Summer 2016

07-23-2016 07:22 PM by Desktopgem | 0 comments »

I haven’t been here for 3 years!! Wow. Not even a blog from me. Anyway, I see we can’t upload photos directly from our computers any more. Where did MsDebbieP go? I am still here and still have my allotment. It is doing well this year and I was about to upload photos but can’t. I’m not sure about using photobucket either. How is everybody doing? I will try again to upload some photos. It says the picture is not in a supported format but it is a jpeg.

Compact Gardening: Fruit Trees

06-11-2016 03:43 PM by MsDebbieP | 2 comments »

A few years ago, I interviewed a gentleman from Dave Wilson nurseries and was fascinated with the “compact gardening” practice with fruit trees—keep them small so they fit in a smaller yard and so you can reach all the fruit without using a ladder. Well, this year (2016), I found another benefit! We have an infestation of Japanese beetles. Now, we get these every year but for the past couple of years, our neighbour put out a Japanese beetle trap and that solved our proble...

2016 #1: Spring Update

05-21-2016 05:19 PM by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

It’s the long weekend in May and I’m busy puttering around in the yard. It has been a slow spring, garden-wise, for me, as I’m babysitting my granddaughter (toddler) and I’d rather focus on her than try and watch her while gardening. First off, I have to say that my fruit trees have all avoided the frost!!! I might actually have some fruit this year (if I beat the squirrels and birds to them.) Having planted a number of nut trees over the years, the squirrels and ch...

I received a message from Iris’ friend today: “Morning Debbie – I am Marjorie (Lurker) who came with Noreen Bradshaw-Roy to one of the Tenders gatherings.“Iris 43” passed away on June 19th in the early morning hours. Peacefully with her daughter Anne-Marie at her side. Thought you would like to know and pass on the information to any of the “Tenders” who will remember her and her many postings.” I am shocked, saddened and … well, sh...

2015 - spring update

06-01-2015 02:44 PM by MsDebbieP | 1 comment »

Hi everyone… thought I’d stop in to give an update. Where to begin?Well, my last posting, I think, was about the cats—so: Tippy is doing well. He had a hard time over the winter because he wanted to spend his time outdoors, as usual, but it was way too cold. We had lots of -30C temperatures. Now, he is happy to be out and about most of time. The winter havoc- overall the trees etc survived the winter nicely and even the early spring! The grapes, cherries, and pears wer...
