I don’t talk about perennials here on the blog very often. The main reason for that, is that I don’t have many perennials. However, I do have a couple bushes that I rely on for some very nice color throughout the season.  Today, I wanted to briefly talk about roses. I have three rose bushes. […]

The past few gardening seasons have been a little bit frustrating. I’ve wanted to grow both food and flowers, therefore, I’ve had to scale back in both areas.

In the cut flower garden, one of my main sources of frustration has always been dahlias. For whatever reason, I’ve just never had much success with them. The first time I ever planted dahlias, I bought them from the dollar store. It was a mixed pack of three, and they turned out to be red…

One of the largest garden related tasks that I set out to finish this week was to finally plant (and transplant) the summer cut flower and vegetable gardens. As much as I would love to separate the two, I simply don’t have the space. The resulting garden is quite the hodge podge of plants. It’s…

So, I’ll admit – I didn’t know what to call this post. For some reason, calling something “super cute” doesn’t seem like the most professional thing to do – but then again, I’m not a professional. That means these pansies are officially being classified as “super cute.” I like it. I’ve definitely been a little…

I got a package in the mail today, and of course, I couldn’t wait to open it. Dahlias! Finally! I ordered quite a few dahlias this year from several different places. The first parcel to have arrived is from Leafari – and I won’t lie, it was pretty disappointing. I’m not sure if Leafari is…

Even though it’s still raining and I still haven’t had the opportunity to plant a lot of my leafy green vegetables, we’re quickly approaching the last frost date for my garden. Here, I generally use the date of May 5th as my frost-free date – though, I’ve heard people say that it changes each year.…

First and foremost, I want to say thank you. When I started selling soap online, I didn’t expect so much support! Several people have mentioned the idea of a “soap of the month” subscription format for the one million scrub club. I’m happy to say that this now a reality! You can now “subscribe” to…
