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…

Gardens, and Renos and Projects Galore!

It has been a little quiet on the sewing front in the last month or so.  There have been other projects taking up my time. The garden is in!  And now it’s just a matter of weeding and watering and harvesting (so far I’ve been eating lettuce and herbs and radishes.)  And yes, the big…

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…

Signs of Spring

Despite the cold chill in the air, there are signs of Spring popping up everywhere.

My New Favourite Gardening Book

We have a whole shelf in our book-filled house dedicated to gardening.  Last year I posted a list of my favourites, and since then I have a list a mile long of books I have read from the library, and those that I hope to read. But of all the gardening books I have read…

The Scent of Spring in Winter’s Chill

It has finally decided to be winter.  The ground outside is snow-covered, the temperature has dipped into the negatives, and with added wind chill today and tomorrow I am going to want to spend my time inside next to our cozy wood stove.  But despite the chill, the promise of spring has already entered our…

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…
