After some nasty weather that set me back last weekend, finally the garden is ready today! I worked very hard over the weekend; tilling the soil, adding Compost and Manure, layering and adding Gypsum. I also gave many worms a new home :)
I think this year will be a good one. I am much more aware of the pest problems, I feel on top of things and ready for the challenge.
My seed trays will soon be filled with the many herbs and veggies I chose to grow this season.
But before I transplant my seedlings I need to prune my grape vines. As I read and learn about it, it's not as complicated as I imagined, and no matter how much you hack it they are very tough to kill. Perfect! exactly what I need!
- Cecile's Country Garden
- 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*
