Gardening Party!

I’m sorry for not posting recently, a lot of craziness has come up and I’ve had to put my blogging on hold. Today, we had a gardening party and potluck at our house. Ace and I, as well as our neighbor and our landlady got a ton of gardening done! Continue reading

Cabbage, Chives, and Broccoli

I know it’s a bit early in the season, but the weather has been so mild that I went ahead and planted out my broccoli and cabbage plants today, and plan to plant my kale tomorrow. This also means that two of my four raised beds are fully planted! Continue reading
