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!

March Came in Like a Lamb

The first two days of March have been rather pleasant, bright and sunny but a little colder.  We have experienced a good amount of snow accumulation this year.  Overall the temperatures haven't been too cold.  I don't think we have even had a bitterly cold spell this year which is nice given the rising home heating costs.  It will soon be time to turn my attention to this year's gardens,

Our house is still on the market but if we sell shortly with a closing date anytime before the end of May there will still be plenty of time to get a garden in where ever we move to.  That is one of the nice things about using raised beds.  They can be constructed, filled, grid laid out and planted all in the same day.  With a little help it is quite easy to get five or six beds ready for planting in a morning.  So I'm not concerned about the potential move.  Goodness, looking back on things it has been almost a year since we listed out house so this will be the second season of gardening uncertainty.  I'm sure things will work out fine though.

Happy Gardening!
