Garden 2012


That time of the year again! We have expanded our raised beds from two to six. Big jump this year. Some things however did not get planted till late.

In the photo here you can see the chives we moved out of a raised bed and in to it’s own container. The blooms were awesome on the chive this year.

The tomato is an patio tomato, like an early girl. We bought it with fruit on it already. Is always fun to have at least one Smile

Check out the “Our Garden” page on the top menu bar to see the new beds. Oh and we added an arbor for the grapes that were taking over our old birch tree. We had to cut it down but we saved the grapes.


My first attempt at building something like this. Did not turn out bad. And we are using the front to host some peas and cukes. Love the dual purpose of the arbor.


We have a lot planned to do yet. There are at least three more major projects to get done in the yard this summer. Keep checking in to learn what they are.

Now go grow something!

The Illusion of Choice?

Robyn illustrates how consolidated our food system has become in her short post. Go take a quick look and study the company chart she has posted there. It is down right scary when you think about it.

Anyone concerned about what they are eating and what companies are feeding us should subscribe to Robyn’s Facebook. She posts a lot of useful and enlightening information.
