Goss, I'm just looking at blogs on my blogspot blogroll that I haven't visited for a while. For some reason I can't get them to notify me like they used to in the past. I see that your yard is lush and green as usual. Do you still tend the lot across the street? I have four different garden areas. I still have Terra Nova Gardens but it's not fully planted this year. I haven't planted it for a couple years because of some family situations that required much time. As a result it went rogue and this is the first year I've been able to try to reclaim it. The beds are still there but the bind weed, wild trees, and vines have taken it over again. I have three raised beds in the back yard that have sweet corn, zucchini, onions, and Bell Peppers. Then I have a 24 bucket garden on the back patio with tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers. In the basement I have an experimental lettuce and radish garden under grow lights that produce salad year round. I will be expanding the salad to other salad items as well during the Winter months.It's really good to see that you are still gardening and blogging.Nebraska DaveUrban Farmer
Hello! Just gardening in the space you see. Your salad garden in the basement sounds great. I have a friend with a hydroponic system for growing lettuce all year. You'll get Terra Nova back again. The layout is under there somewhere. My tomatoes are coming on good now and lots of squash. Just dug out the garlic. Peppers are slow going for some reason here. Been blessed with good rains this last week. Sure saves a lot of time not having to carry water around. Take care and happy gardening!
I am so happy you found me! Your yard is beautiful as always. Thankful to read you have had good rains. Your tomatoes, squash, garlic and peppers sound so good. We've had a few cucumbers to enjoy with our salad. Wishing you a lovely new week. Mildred in Georgia
Got more rain last night so looking good for the garden.
Beautiful. I am delighted. What's the weather like?
We've been hot but getting good rains. Makes such a difference for the garden.
I'm in love with your front yard. That is a masterpiece! Hey, question for you. How are the mosquitoes around your water features in the backyard and what do you do, if you have them, to keep them away? Or do you just live with them. We have them in the morning and evening really bad.
Thank you! The front garden makes me so happy when I see it.I often keep a couple of small goldfish in the water container but didn't get any this year so I'm using "mosquito dunks" in it like I do in my rain barrels. https://www.amazon.com/Summit-responsible-solutions-110-12-Mosquito/dp/B0000AH849/ref=asc_df_B0000AH849/Most garden centers have them or you can order them.
Have just found your blog and I must say your garden is truly beautiful x
We've just started the process for changing our entire backyard into a garden and get rid of all the grass.
We did it in pieces. Don't miss the grass one bit!
I love your wonderful yard! You certainly have a lovely green thumb! Every thing looks healthy, happy and green! Have a glorious day! Nancy🌼
