Progressing through out “SPICES”, we look at Creativity and the impact gardening has on this area of our development. Creativity is a vital part of living a healthy life. It comes into play with problem-solving, with envisioning possibilities, and with expressing one’s inner self, (to name a few areas). As gardeners, we are constantly being creative – from planning our gardens regarding contents as well as lay-out, to finding ways to work with Mother Nature. Ther...
I was out taking some pics of the garden the other day and thought I’d post a couple blossom shots. The pumpkins only open in the morning. You can see a couple watermelons stariting to fatten up next to them. The sunflowers have started to sag and shrivle, I think due to the cucumbers blocking their sun, but the smaller blossoms are still looking happy.
“If you are looking for me,” my answering machine reports, “I’m still in the blueberries. When I get my life back, I’ll give you a call.” The good news is that I have passed the peak of the picking when I picked three and a half buckets. Took me close to 5 hours. Now the tops of the bushes are nude and the ripening fruit is all down on the lower half which means you feel like you have planted a rice field by the time you are done. The weather has c...

You really do get flowers a lot earlier. I use milk ...
Well its not been the quiet Summer I had planned for, but it never is. Had to get a new computer then some other things happened, anyway hoping for a quiet Autumn. I know I am a bit early for that but I am ready for it. Let me update some stuff for you. Homemade Bird Feeder: Still works like a charm but the birds are not having much interest in the food anymore. ??Container Gardens: Still beautiful, dying off for the change in weather though, they say its going to be outrageous hot ...

Sea Buckthorn / Sea Berry Seeds!The New England region in the United States has, so far, experienced a snowy season. Shoveling, plowing, salting walkways etc has taken up more time than I can recall compared to recent years. The silver lining is the sea buckthorn plants in the ground for their first winter here have a cozy layer of snow over them. Protected from extreme cold changes and especially the winter winds should increase their winter survival chances. This spring I will be lookin...
