Hmmm, are you asking if this is what we'll be planting this year? Pretty much, yes...we had all of that last year, well, not the Horseradish, Kohlrabi, Pak Choy...but everything else was in our garden.

Our garden boxes have Beets, Swish Chard, Spinach, Fennel, Lettuce and Snow Peas growing right now. The Herb Box has Oregano, Thyme (2 varieties) Rosemary, and 2 varieties of Sage still doing well even after our hard frosts. We'll replant the Basil, Chives, Dill, and Tarragon soon. The Lemon Balm is coming back...lots of new growth at the base of the dead looking sticks.

I'll wait to see what else comes up before adding more to the Herb Box. This is one we share with everyone in our Apollo Garden, and other neighbors who need something quickly to add to whatever they're cooking. This is what it looked like in June, then grew more lush during the summer


Al and I were looking at this box yesterday and have decided to remove the hoops...we don't use them and they're dangerously close to snapping. Al had one of these smack his face last winter when trying to adjust a hoop...not a fun thing at all! Ouch! Anyway, the hoop isn't necessary and the herbs look so lovely draping over the edges of the box. As we walk past the box and brush the plants the smells are delicious! We let some of the plants flower to attract more bees...even the hummingbirds come down to take a look.

I love our Apollo Garden! sunny

Bumping for 2016. This is the time for starting many of summer crops from seeds. I'm going to be a little late this year but I hope everyone else is able to move ahead with seeding according to your little micro-climate. Very Happy

Bumping for February 2017.

I'm still waiting until mid February before starting any seeds indoors. The sweet potato slips are doing good.

I'm waiting too. Normally I would start today, but there's too much rain ahead, so I'm going to wait another week and check the 10-day forecast again. bounce

I didn't share it at the time, but we just spent 8 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit with our grandson, Hunter a little over a week ago.  He was life-flighted from Children's Hospital in Fresno, to Kaiser in Santa Clara.  It was a long hard battle, with a lot of praying, and now he's home about 90% on the mend.  He had RSV and got dangerously dehydrated.

Soooo..... all that to say, my garden plans weren't on the top of my list so I'll have to start a little later than normal but with our long growing season, it will all work out.

Nana's garden will grow and she can't wait to share it with Hunter as he grows I love you

OMG, Audrey!! What a scary thing. Poor little guy. The good news is that little ones spring back so fast and forget so quickly, he should bounce back like a little garden toad. The rest of you might need some serious R&R. Hugs and blessings and good vibes and positive energies, and super prayers heading out to all of you. I love you I love you I love you

If he had to be life-flighted from Valley Children's then it was very serious. Little ones can go down hill so fast. I'm so glad he is recovering now. Wonderful that you could be with Hunter and his mom and dad at that scary time. xoxo

Such a relief that Hunter is on the mend, Audrey. 
And now you both have something to look forward to, gardening together...even if he's only watching for now.

Change the water if it looks cloudy, like every 2 or 3 days. Thank you for reminding me, it's over due!
