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*

Fresh Carrots!

Well, my Fall crops are mostly done, My Lettuce, Onions and Carrots are delicious! What a difference in taste compared to store-bought :)
Finally the danger of frost has gone, but I worry about my grape vine, since it's dormant and dead-looking. I need to learn about the whole pruning process for it.
I started cleaning out sections of the garden and making room for the next batch  :)  On my list are Melons, Beets, Zucchini,Cucumbers and Tomatoes, just to name a few. I am thinking of growing Peanuts this time.
My composted chicken waste will most definitely help enrich my soil. Looking forward to getting my hands dirty again!

  1. Sounds like you need to dig up your whole yard to plant all the crops you want to plant.
