This year? Not so great. We started the gardening year during the main part of the COVID-19 lockdown, so we weren't going anywhere. Which meant that getting in things like planting medium and other yearly needs was put off for a bit. I did start some of the vegetables indoors as usual, but I had … Continue reading Monday Musings: How Does Your Garden Grow?
Nothing really exciting going on, to be honest. We had a cook off to run the judging for on Saturday in Loudon, NH. It's a bit of a drive but a good event.

The temps haven't been very nice, either. This weekend has been rainy and chilly. The weather … Continue reading Monday Musings: Another Week Goes By
How does my garden grow? This year, not too badly. I tilled in a load of composted chicken manure and shavings from the coop in the Spring, and it sure has helped! The plants, for the most part, are big, green, and leafy. Of course, the manure is high nitrogen, which promotes leaf growth, so … Continue reading Monday Musings: Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary
