Staying ahead of the weeds...


Doesn't feel possible to stay ahead of the weeds.....We use grass clippings from the yard ( All natural, no fertilizer added) but as Summer heats up, there just isn't enough clippings to keep up.

To stay ahead of the game, I have applied organic paper mulch to help suppress and keep the weeds at bay this season.

Installation is super easy.... wetting it down, makes the paper soft enough to plant through.

The long winter was almost unbearable.....and this is what I hold out hope for!


Sweet...sweet blooms.....I love you!

Slug Bug


Ewwwwwww!

Ok, this where I totally act like a girl....Not my favorite part of gardening. These guys really gross me out!! Have you ever stepped on one barefoot in the dark? Yuck!

 Found this little sneaky in the greenhouse this morning.

I can't touch them...I just can't!!!!

Scooped this one up and launched it into the chicken pen and in a matter of 2 seconds, it was gobbled up!

A little beat up!


Rain and hail have left a mark.....but still beautiful in my eyes. My favorite Red white and blue combo, Plassir Tulips with grape hyacinths planted at the base of our flagpole.

No...that's not a weed!!!





Heirloom "Ailsa Craig" onion starts have reseeded and came up all on their own.  
I almost mistook them for grass trying to creep into the garden bed. 

They have been happily rehomed!

Price of Lettuce in the Inland NW

With the price of lettuce in our local grocery store at $2.99 a head (not even organic)...I am thankful mine is starting to take off!

Imagine the $$$$ saved ;-)
