6 months?

Has it REALLY been 6 months? Well since I am very OCD and Bi-polar all wrapped up into one, I got VERY tired of my garden and documenting it. But I'm back!

This is what I am planning on doing this year. I am going to try corn once more but with the three sisters method. Any advice?

I should have started my tomato plants 3 1/2 weeks ago, but every day I plan on doing it that night. I am hoping to rig something up downstairs. I have some GREAT fluorescent lights but with normal people, they are on the ceiling and I am not electricity knowledgeable enough to move it so I am going to have to bring the plants to the light. I also have to get some soil from the garden. Can you start tomato plants and pepper plants in peat moss only?

Maybe I can beat last year's harvest of pears. Not one was ripe. EWWWWW Maybe if I stick some Irish Spring in the trees to keep the deer away, then I can leave them up there until the end of August. But I made MANY jars of Pear preserves. I am not fond of the pieces of pears in it so I will make pear butter this year. Got to get more jars! lol

It's good to be back. Thanks for all your feedback!


  1. Jen - glad to see you back! I'm shocked to hear that you should have started your tomato seeds weeks ago - where do you live? About the pears - I always pick mine green for making preserves with, but let them get ripe for pear butter. Pear butter is alot of work!

  2. Fantastic to see you back. You look like you've got quite a garden going there. I'm excited to see how it goes.
