Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

The Homeside Garden Report

We are back homeside after being away for a couple of weeks.  It wasn't the ideal time to go away with respect to the garden but it was a much needed break for us.  I can't believe what a difference a bit of time away from the gardens made.  Apparently we got a fair amount of rain because the lawns look lovely.  They are nice and green!  The herb bed is doing wonderful and I just picked oodles of hot peppers for canning.  The tomatoes didn't fare as well with too much rain that caused splitting.  Still there were a few stragglers to pick.  I did end up losing my potted grapevine and one horseradish but all of a sudden my onions are back.  So it's been an interesting return to my home garden after having a bit of fun at my vacation garde :)

Happy Gardening!
