Who’s Playing Tricks On Me

Today on HGTVgardens Ask & Share Mallory shared thoughts on Watermelon. The mention of watermelon reminds me of the time my brother in law played a trick on me in the garden.  Watermelons are easy to grow .. but not that easy!  Below is an article I shared back in 2010. YES…. ‘WHO is playing […]

LIVE … Almost!

Can’t View This? Click on my youtube Channel! Spring has SPRUNG in my neck of the woods so I’m running short on time to share online.   My solution is to keep it short and sweet by little (if any) video editing to share with you what is going on LIVE! It is all coming back […]
Guess this Summer BLOOM?

Quick Take On Green Bloom Day

I am having the time of my life right now in the garden and the ground in zone 5b isn’t even completely defrosted yet  for planting.  If everyone knew how rewarding it can be to grow your own veggies & blooms I think we would all have happy faces 24 /7 ! With all this […]

Aphids via Sunshine?

Day 3 of sunshine and the greenhouse temperatures up to 100*F. The vents are open and the fan is on in my little piece of heaven. Only look close…….. (Ekkkkk)  a bug and not the good kind of bug either.   The next thing I know I am spraying the greenhouse plants down with my soap, […]

Egg Carton Treasures

The other day on my Facebook News Feed I noticed one of my favorite garden network  friends, Colleen Vanderlinden of In the Garden Online had asked her fans to share a blog post on recycling containers for planting seeds.  Many of my post from my previous blog came to mind but I want to share […]

Seeds Add Flavor To Your Wallet

I am a seed-aholic! You know they say that admitting to your ‘problem’ is the first step to recovery. It is no secret that I can’t walk into ANY STORE without purchasing a packet (…. ok, more like a few!) of seeds to start growing immediately.

Giving Away Art In Bloom

You know I have been looking forward to the Central Ohio Home & Garden show since I first blogged about it back in December. It is no secret that I am a big  fan of supporting my states garden network as you look at my photos I share from local growers.   I am honored to […]
Addicted to SEED

“Somebody STOP ME!”

Crazy about seeds in early Spring 2010. I can’t help myself from purchasing more seeds at these low prices.

A Little Break From White

On Presidents Day I found myself on another road trip only this time we heading North. The snow had stopped for the day but it was still a very cold 20*F in our neck of the woods.  Great day for a drive in search of some indoor fun!  We decided on a fun afternoon up […]

Bloom Day – From Cleveland H&G Show

I woke on this Bloom Day in February to find that my heater had turned off during the night in the greenhouse.  The temperature outside was a crisp 2*F and the greenhouse was at  25*F  when I awoke at 7 am.  Not to panic because from the looks of the house so far nothing major […]

A Brew My Plants Will Enjoy!

Another snow day in my neck of the woods with the blustery wind blowing so bad that I didn’t dare wonder to far from the warm house.   Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to be one of the few customers at William Sonoma to snatch up a  mulling spice ball that are hard to […]
