November in the Garden

One last vegetable garden task remains. Thanksgiving is a just a few days away and while our late Fall weather has been relatively mild, we’ve still had some nights where the thermometer has dipped slightly below freezing. Which is completely survivable….if you’re a carrot 🙂 I usually wait to harvest the bulk of the carrot […]

September in the Garden

There is something going on with my tomatoes this year. I’ve babied them right from the start making sure they had adequate organic compost and calcium (Quoddy Lobster Compost and pulverized eggshells) in their planting holes, fertilizing them on a regular basis (Lobster & Kelp fertilizer), and making sure they were given at least an […]

April in the Garden

April is an amazing month as perennials and flowering bulbs emerge from the warming earth with fascinating speed. It never ceases to amaze me just how quickly plants grow from week to week.
