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*

Very Busy Weekend Ahead

I have a list of things to do this weekend, most importantly emptying my full compost bin and filling it right back up with buckets lined up - full of garden leftovers and chicken waste.
I will be testing my soil and adding much needed nutrients and prep it for my next planting adventure.
This I prefer doing manually, help break it down, till, and fluff it up nicely :)
Something about feeling the dirt on my hands and under my feet :)
No gloves required here  :)
Also, open up my cherished seed box and sort out what I will be growing this time. Will need to see what kind of seed trays I can fabricate, something recycled I imagine.
Then the coop...
Then the cleaning up after the dust storm...
Deep soak my fruit trees...
Mow the lawn...
Clean the dusty, dirty vehicle...
More indoor cleaning...etc
and then... if I have time, sort out my canning recipes and figure out what I want to can next.  sigh. I'll be happy to get half of that done!
I love weekends
