(Nearly) Wordless Wednesday: Anticipating Harvest

We've already harvested a bunch of artichokes, and clearly are falling behind.

I'm having a hard time picking strawberries before Drexel does.

"Only two things that money can't buy, and that's true love and home-grown tomatoes."

I need to plant more lettuce, so I can extend the season.

The pomegranate seems well-established now, and is blooming on an annual basis.



Thanks for bits of beauty in my garden.

  2. How I love to dig in the dirt and garden, but I don't have a space for one anymore.

  4. I planted artichokes and I'm not too sure how to grow them. They have to be 4 ft across?? If so, that's 8 ft for my two plants? What should I expect?

    1. Believe it or not, my artichoke is planted in a square-foot garden. It does take up an entire 4x4 foot box, though, so 4 feet apart sounds about right.

      Artichokes are perennial. I think my plant is 3 years old now. It dies down after producing in the spring, but comes back the following year.

      If you are planting 2 plants, you might expect tons of artichokes!

  5. Your plants look lovely, especially your artichokes! I'm anticipating some of those myself---this is my first year growing them, so I'm not sure what to expect. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, nice to meet you!

Ten Things of Thankful: Even in Times of Uncertainty

  A railroad switch point on the tracks at the Golden Spike National Historic Park There is a lot I don't know. I don't know who will lead the United States for the next four years (at the time I'm composing this post, that hasn't been determined yet.) I don't know when covid cases will stop rising in my state and start decreasing. I don't know how challenging situations will turn out. There is much uncertainty in life. Living in limbo-land is hard. It's emotionally exhausting. It can be immobilizing. My body seems to think chocolate is the answer, but I know that isn't a long-term solution. What do I need in times like these? I need to REMEMBER . 1. R esilience. People are resilient. I am resilient. I'm thankful for resilience. 2. " E ach Life That Touches Ours for Good." So many people, both those I know in "real life," and those I have only met virtually, have taught me, encouraged me, and been examples to me. I'm thankful

Ten Things of Thankful: Another Trip Around the Sun

  A mixed bouquet of pink and purple flowers sits on a round table Last weekend, I celebrated another birthday. I think the earth moves around the sun faster and faster each year, but I can't prove it. Before another minute goes by, let me share my Ten Things of Thankful list for this week. I'm thankful for family: A birthday dinner with my daughter Birthday calls/texts from family members Beautiful flowers from my children A Facetime call with grandchildren. (My grandson repeated three words the entire time: "I am three!" At one point, I told him I would call him Groot.😉)  Drexel and his laid-back nature (The following video shows Drexel on the floor, while the robotic vacuum repeatedly runs into him and starts up his hind leg and tail. Drexel never gets up.) John and his engineering skills. Yesterday, the bishopric of our ward (church congregation) drove around the neighborhood and (taking care to observe covid recommendations) passed out doughnuts to everyone. Eac
