Fixing-to-get-ready for the 2015 Gardening season

Harvest 6-22-2014

We originally hadn’t planned to have a garden this year. We had decided to take a year or more off from gardening. We were both looking forward to not worrying with the work and responsibilities of gardening…

Then during one long dark boring winter evening we realized that Summer daylight hours are really long too. Other than yard maintenance and sitting on the back porch watching Shelibean chase bugs, we were headed for a very boring inactive Summer. We figure we need exercise and since we’re not much for athletics or any of the extreme walking nonsense, we decided to have a garden once again.

We plan on our garden being small, but that could change… and it always does…
We’re making plans and looking forward to tilling the soil, planting, weeding, harvesting and eating the produce of our labor… Yeah!
IMG_8937Last week I ordered a new supply of One Ball squash seeds. They arrived last Monday.
At our house, round squash has became a tradition. Now, I’m ready for garden season and purchasing the other seeds and plants we’ll try to grow.

So folks, get ready for another year of repetitive anecdotes and unprofessional garden photos straight from my home-place posted here on my blog. Lucky you. 😉gardening

I hope you all are looking ahead and making
plans to spend time outdoors this Spring.

  1. Good for you, you might as well do some garden maintenance on those long summer evenings,
    and you had a good harvest last year so it will be interesting to see what you grow this year.
    I live in the sub-tropics of Australia which means our weather permits me to garden all year long – how lucky am I….I love my garden. At the moment I still have tomatoes ripening on the vine, capsicums, scallions, strawberries, green beans, peas, plus a herb garden. The maintenance is well worth it – nothing like eating your own fresh produce straight from garden to the table!

    • Oh my goodness Barb
      I’m pea green with envy. It must be wonderful to live in a region where you can grow healthy foodies all year round. It couldn’t happen to a nicer gal, you lucky lady. 🙂

  2. I don’t have a veggie garden, but I usually plant way more flowers than I should…then have to keep them watered and weeded and sprayed with Liquid Fence to keep the deer and rabbits away….. But I am SO looking forward to green grass and warm temps!

    • Hey Dianna
      I wish I could get flowers tog row as well as you. You really do a great job tending them even when you plant more than you planned.
      Liquid fence must be good stuff. Deer and rabbits posing for photos outside the flower beds makes summertime extra fun.


    • Thanks Sheryl
      Spring really isn’t too far off, but oh boy the winter seems longer when I realize planting in the garden isn’t til April/May, Luckily I’ll be starting some seeds soon and hopefully they’ll do well and keep me content til planting time. 🙂


    • I agree Patti
      I like that: “you get to eat the fruit of your labor.” 🙂
      So far, I don’t know of anyone but me and my Brother that’s grew ball squash. I keep hoping that they’ll become common like crookneck or zucchini. Maybe some decade to come they will.
