I'm a Canadian now residing in Sunny Arizona since 2002. Although I've been a city girl all of my life, I've always loved the country and the laid back life it offers. My love of the Outdoors, Animals,and Gardening comes from my mom Cecile, who loved her home in the country, but sadly passed away in 2005. I promised her I would grow a garden in her name, And I finally did, five years later. One of my best memories of her is how much she loved her garden. The glow on her face when she would show me something new, always creating a life with things she loved. She loved all animals. She taught me simplicity, to enjoy the small things, and see beauty in everything. Today I find myself doing the same things she did in her garden and in life. This blog was created to keep track of my projects and adventures. They may not all be successes, but my goal is to remain unintimidated by whatever engages my curiosity. I want to share this adventure with those who can appreciate the small things, the trial and errors, the simplicity in it all, but mostly,what my mom knew how to do best,just have FUN! *This blog is dedicated to her*

My Little Red Potatoes

I feel incredibly lucky to not have any issues with my potatoes. Much of the information I have found describe the problems with pests and disease when growing them. I've been keeping an eye on them daily to make sure they are fine. This is one of the easiest crops to grow. I haven't seen any weeds around them,unlike my other vegetables which leads me to believe that they make it very difficult for them to come through.
Its been 2 months since I planted them and I am curious as to how they are doing. Yesterday I decided to gently dig around one and discovered the neatest treasure! This is where I have a big smile on my face :)
I was too excited to let them be, and since I already have plenty more I decided to dig them out and have them for dinner.
