As much as I love Christmas, once everything is taken down and put away, I get bitten by the gardening bug. The planning begins, the seed catalogues get studied and dog eared and orders put together. I love this part of gardening as much as the actual getting dirty, digging and weed pulling part.
Galeux D'eysines Pumpkin (or Peanut Pumpkin)
These two types of seed are available from Westcoast Seeds.
The Sungold Tomatoes are the most delicious cherry Tomatoes I have ever tasted.
My name is Erin and I am a Pinterest addict. No really. I spend at least an hour a day looking for beauty in photographs!! Last night I stumbled on a cookie maker named Teri Pringle Wood. And this is what she does....
Thanks to my mother, I now have light in the greenhouse. I was describing to her how I would grab my little Lee Valley flashlight in the evening and go out to check things. I need to see where I’m walking, as I have a real fear of squashing slugs onto my shoes. Blech. Also trying to work in there in a thin stream of light is virtually impossible. So I was saying I wanted to put a light out there. Mom said, why don’t you get a remote control one then it would be on when you went in, instead of looking for the switch in the dark. I had no idea what she meant. Well it turns out you can get a plug in that is triggered by remote control like a TV. I got one called Woods Wireless Remote from Home Hardware. It works perfectly, even through glass and deck furniture. Mom also gave me a outdoor floodlight which I am using temporarily. It is smashing. Check this out.
These pictures were taken in low light, so they are a bit fuzzy.
This Pink Lady Apple Tree did not produce any fruit this year. No surprise really, the willow has grown right over top of it, shading it for much of the day. Today I am moving it to a very prime location.
This is one of last years Pink Lady Apples. Not only is it beautiful, but the taste is wonderful.
After an incredible battle digging it out, it is now in its permanent home.
