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*

Garden Time :)

A weekend full of gardening is exactly what I needed  :) The sun was out, breezy and warm. Turned my compost and soil, did some clipping, trimming, prepped my seed trays and picked fresh Broccoli, Onions, Lettuce, Carrots and Cauliflower :)

I can say that despite the loss of some veggies due to the frost I still have enough to keep food on the table. I've made the best tasting salad, now I can steam my Broccoli and Carrots, or get creative and make various Soups.
In my trays I planted Tomatoes, Corn, Beets (for pickling), Garlic, Zucchini, Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Cucumbers, Peanuts, Beans and Peas. Lots more work ahead but I'm enjoying every moment spent in that garden. I am learning more as I go....or grow  :)
