Shearing is Done! Time to Plant!

The shearing is done, the ewes and lambs have been turned out onto spring and summer pasture, and I don't have to feed hay anymore! Yay! If you are interested in fleece, let me know!

Bok Choy Harvest & Kadun Kadu (Chamorro Beef Soup)

We lived on Guam for 3 years before we got out of the U.S. Navy; it was the Husband's second tour on Guam. One of the recipes I instantly loved was Kadun Kadu and everytime I can get my hands on bok choy, I'm almost sure to make it.

Spring Flowers

Just wanted to share some beautiful spring flowers to brighten your day. I soooooo hope we get a few peaches this year! Crossing fingers!

Low Tunnel Update 2

Bok choy is almost ready for harvest!

Low Tunnel Update

Well, you've been asking for an update, so here it is! The low tunnel AKA "COVID-19 victory" garden has been planted. I think that's what I will call my gardens from now on - my COVID-19 (coronavirus) victory gardens. Oh, the suspense (to see if the tunnel yields any produce)!

Starting Veggies & Herbs Indoors – Update!

I deduced that I started with the lights too high up and lowered them within the first or second week. Unfortunately, some of the seedlings ended up a bit leggy. I think they will work out in the end. Anyways, these pics are from February 11.

Building a Low Tunnel

I'm trying out my new pipebender from Johnny's Selected Seeds today. It was fairly easy for me to bend the first hoop. The hoops are made out of 1/2" electrical conduit.

Collards Are Up!

Wow, that only took 3 days! I planted the collards on Monday and they are already up. There are some lettuces that have emerged, too. I will get better pictures of those tomorrow.

Starting Veggies & Herbs Indoors

Well, I'm trying to get a head-start on my garden this year. I am determined not to miss a single season! So, I got some grow lights and I will be performing some experiments by starting my veggies and herbs from seeds indoors.
