Crazy about seeds in early Spring 2010. I can’t help myself from purchasing more seeds at these low prices.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Tomorrow is most commonly known as Super Bowl Sunday for most Football fanatics. HOWEVER, in the garden world we will be having a Super Time Sowing Seeds! Grab some dirt, a few seeds and come enjoy the chatter as we celebrate sowing time. Not sure which of these fabulous garden ladies it was but […]
We were on a level 1 snow emergency in our county this evening. I thought I would take the video camera out to the greenhouse to show you all how well she is handling the zone 5b weather. Looking forward to the Super SOW Sunday with some of my garden girlies over at Twitter. I […]
A few days ago the first of my spring bulbs that I forced in the greenhouse started to open. I quickly cut the sunny yellow daffodils and brought them into my earth tone home for all the enjoy. By day two of having them in my home I noticed they really didn’t match my decor […]
The month of January seemed to fly by in the BGgarden as I prepared for planting 2010, organized my home for spring, and enjoyed the winter fun the weather provided. The treasures I have growing in the greenhouse are doing well. Some of the delicate green I was hoping to winter over got ‘zapped’ one […]
It has been 12 weeks since we placed the spring bulbs in refrigeration for a early spring bloom. Time to plant those bulbs so we can enjoy an early spring bloom indoors. If you are having difficulties viewing my video on Forcing Bulbs please stop by my Youtube channel at BGgarden live! I hope this […]
I will admit the forecast of highs only reaching the low 20′s and lows in the single digits for this weekend has made me a bit scared to think of my greenhouse project. The thought of losing my blooms I have been wintering over is enough to make me lose sleep. It was a wonderful […]
Look deep into the image and you can almost smell the soft scent of spring. As I look into the rose bouquet it is hard to believe this is winter.It won’t be long and we will be trying to find time to enjoy blooms like these in the summer garden. These beautiful roses sit in […]
One of the highlights of my trip to Ireland last week was a visit with new friends to the Milk Market located in the city of Limerick. The Limerick Market Trustees have been operating since 1852. Apart from the Milk Market, which will be undergoing a major remodel until 2010 , the market on Bedford Row, off O’Connell Street, is open every Sunday afternoon.
