Started hardening the onions so they will be ready to plant soon. Hardening is a process of gradually getting plants used to the outside temperatures. It takes about a week until they can stay outside all day. Spring is around the corner. I can’t wait!

The concoctions I’ve been making in my kitchen I found in this book, ‘The Regenerative Grower’s Guide to Garden Amendments’, by Nigel Palmer. This book teaches how to make your soil living and thriving. This is the one reference book I don’t want to be without!

Along with planting lots of plants in my basement, I’ve been making concoctions in my kitchen for the garden. This is a quart of eggshells with apple cider vinegar poured over it. The acv leeches out the calcium from the eggshells It looks like it’s boiling. It’s not. This liquid is a concentrate that I use diluted on tomatoes, peppers, eggplant…anything that is prone to blossom end rot. The calcium takes care of that..organically and safely

This winter I found this great idea on Facebook and made one. I call it my eagle’s nest composter. It’s made of small locust trees driven into the ground and grape vines woven around the outside.

I watch a lot of youtube during the winter. Several caught my eye on winter sowing. The advantages are intriguing. They will germinate when they’re naturally ready and they are already hardened to the weather when ready to transplant. Another advantage is that you don’t need plant lights or a special room. It‘s all done outside in the winter. Any plant that has winter hardy seeds can be grown with this method in any plastic container. I used milk and vinegar jugs. I had to try it. I’ll let you know how it goes. So far I have a good variety of herbs, vegetables and flowers all labeled and ready to go!
Winter wonderland pictures on my walk down by our creek. The snow makes it magical. Mouse tracks and tunnels abound.
The new year has officially begun. I couldn’t wait! I planted some onions and this year Shallots! It felt so good to play in the dirt again. Stay tuned. There’s lots going on here. I’ve only just begun
The year has begun!! I could’t wait. I planted Walla Walla, Candy, Sweet Spanish, Alyssa Craig onions and this year Shallots! More to come in the next few days. It felt so good to play in the dirt
I stopped and got sweet corn tonight. It was AMAZING!!! Definately be back.
Do you still have pumpkins and what are your current hours, please?
Will you have tomatoes at the farmers market tomorrow?
We had a great time picking out pumpkins today! Wow, what a selection! We walked away paying $19.19 with all these pumpkins and great memories 🎃
Isaac loves corn on the cob! We are going to grow q garden baby!!!
BOOM 2 bushels done "almost" thank you for growing all the corn and vegetables
Veggies and a show!!!! He is awesome!!!!
Hi Dusty! Do you know what kind of squash this is?
To My Sweet Daughter...
A new fangled invention?
New stuff from Spurgeon Veggies: zucchini, dill, cilantro, cucumbers, and more! Come early on Saturday for the best selection.
Stir fry chicken and Spurgeon’s veggies!
