The most amazing plant discovery ever!

Last year I made the most amazing plant discovery ever.  Seriously.  This plant is a medicinal powerhouse.  Chew it or chop it up and apply it for immediate relief from bug bites, bee stings, nettle stings, and rashes.  Apply it to a deep sliver and it will actually pull it out of the skin.  It…

Forgotten Plants Series

It has been a very busy few months around here as we moved to a new town, settled into our new house, and began our new jobs.  And yes, since we just can’t seem to help ourselves, we have begun renovations on our new house, too.  (How many of you already knew that was going…

From Lawn to Garden in a Day

When I was deep into gardening plans this winter, wanting to grow more things than we have room for in our current gardens, I thought “wouldn’t it be great to turn the big patch of lawn in front of our house into a garden?” There were many reasons this would work – we already had…

Getting the Garden Ready for Winter

We have had an absolutely gorgeous fall here in Atlantic Canada.  Warm temperatures and sunny days  have meant the longest gardening season we have ever had.  I am still harvesting the odd lettuces and spinach, many of the herbs are still growing, and some of the plants (like the celery) have been tricked into sending…

Harvesting Herbs

  I know I haven’t been writing here as much as usual.  Thanks to all of you who have stuck with me through this busy time and still read my posts.  You mean the world to me! We have been extremely blessed this year with an abnormally mild fall.  Usually by this time my garden…
