Pie Day Which is Actually Garden Day

Monday, March 14th, 2011


Because we did not have any pies. We did have some namby pamby pies to round out “Six More Weeks of Pie” last Friday but no pie today (actually they were pretty good pies; lemon and apple from The Chick Inn. Always wanted to try their pies since they have a PIE neon in the window so we used SMWoP as an excuse. Apple is pretty darned good). We fail at pie when it counts but we succeeded at pie for when it counts differently. I think maybe we had too much pie.

Garden Pr0n

Friday, March 4th, 2011


Well, at least I am on track for March’s Month of House Project Madness because LunarGeography and I got out the garden porn magazines and planned our 2011 gardens while the boys argued Smithee clips.

Memorial Day Picto-post

Monday, May 31st, 2010


Here’s a pic of my new hummingbird feeder which has gone completely ignored since I hung it last weekend. Not even ants or bees have given it a second glance. Sigh. It’s really pretty though.

Check it out: TOMATO RIG! TheMan put this beasty together and I loveLoveLOVE it! I could, theoretically, hang 10 tomato plants on it and they wouldn’t be crowded. I only had enough rigging for 5 (are there 5 up there? I can’t remember) seeings as I sort of miscalculated with the carabeaner(?) hook doodads. Apparently, once you slip the hook fella onto the pipes, you can’t open it wide enough to get the bucket handle through. Hence the double hook set up (which you can see…)

First Harvest of ’08

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008


Strawberries! From my garden! Which isn’t yet weeded thoroughly so getting to the strawberries was a bit of a challenge. Still, they are growing and prospering and darned fine strawberryific. I had them cut up in my yogurt parfait snack.
