Over the last few weeks my flowers and herbs have got a lot bigger. I am unsure of what one blossoming flower is though. I think it is either a Shasta Daisy or a Aster. I guess we will see as the other ones grow what it is. I transplanted some Stocks, Cosmos, Zinnias, and Nasturtiums today as they are quickly out growing the small black cups! The weather has been nicer these last few days and our plants are loving it! It is still too soon to put them outside, and by that time Morgyn’s Tomatoes and Sunflowers will be even taller than they are now! What a great garden we are going to have this year!

Our over wintered Rhubarb that is doing really well! We may transplant some into a different area of our yard as well.

Flowers and Herbs doing well and enjoying the sunshine! :)


Another tray of new seedlings ; Borage, Marigolds, Lemon Balm, Zinnias


Dianthus, Shasta Daisies, Lupins (that I learned I cannot transplant. Have to direct seed as they do not react well to transplanting), Stocks (these are the stocks that I transplanted today), Cosmos, and Marigolds.

I think the easiest flowers to germinate are Stocks, Marigolds, Cosmos and Zinnias.

Last night after a lot of preparation we made Thai Yellow Curry with Saffron Rice. It was very nice to eat it again since we haven’t made it for awhile. If you haven’t had it before, you should try it. The paste is very delicious and the main dish has coconut milk in it which makes it a bit sweet. We added Prawns to ours and it was lovely..ff you like things a little spicy you can add as many chilies in the dish as you like, this time we just added some red chili flakes! It was very flavorful and there are left overs for today! :)

Our seedlings are really doing great now! Morgyn’s hot peppers are really looking healthy, same with my flowers and herbs. I had to water a few of my seedlings today because they dried out from the sunshine. They are slowly getting bigger and it is exciting to see how far they’ve come!


My Flowers and Herbs


Hot Peppers and my Amaranthus hanging basket. Here is Mr Dog sunbathing!




Tomatoes, my new flowers and herbs, Lettuce in the next tray, more hot Peppers in the next tray and then my Amaranthus hanging basket :)

Today we were out in the yard working on our Pea Bed and started putting some gardening plastic and compost on my flower bed. It will take quite a few big planters full of compost yet to cover all my garden. I didn’t realize how big my flower bed is! I thought it was a lot smaller, I will for sure have enough space for my flowers and possibly be able to start more! A pleasant surprise today with my 2 new trays of flowers and herbs, my first Borage seedling is coming up! So exciting I was almost worried that they hadn’t got enough water or too much water for that matter but a whole bunch of different seedlings are coming up! Marigolds, Cosmos, Lemon Balm, Stocks and my Borage.

One of our garden projects is our Pea Bed as you may have seen a few days ago. Today it is a really nice outside and we decided to finish filling up the bed with compost and Morgyn planted the Peas! We only planted half of the bed with Peas as we are going to be planting Beans in the other side. They are going to be fun to follow up on and delicious to eat!
