Since around 2016 I have been interested in growing things. I have wanted to dirty my hands and get to business. I started small, with a few herbs here and there around the house. And then when I realized that I couldn't manage it with a busy work schedule, maintaining a social life, and being … Continue reading Season One | a potting shelf 🪴
Many moments of my childhood were spent gazing out my bedroom window at the beautiful pink and blue flowers that, I believed, had been planted just for me. They were my escape.

Today is the day I try something completely foreign to me: Drip irrigation! It took many a YouTube video for me to actually get on the drip train, but now that I'm here I have the itch to connect everything to a timing system. Y'all, this was so easy once I figured out how everything … Continue reading Season One | Drip, drip, drip
This evening was one for what I call the almost garden. I think perhaps I need a better name for it. It, meaning the idea that isn't quite an actual thing just yet. I think, for now, I may name the garden project lightning. It is storming as I write this. A beautiful, cooling spring … Continue reading Season One | Lightning & Roses
I've heard that removing the wilted flowers from a plant will provoke the growing of fresh flowers. I believe the process of culling the old blooms is called deadheading. As I have just planted some new flowers in our front garden, I decided to test this practice. So, at 9 am I made my way … Continue reading deadheading and a potential new friend
Spring 2021 is finally the season that I feel that I can start planting. I have done so much thinking and overthinking for the last few years, that I've decided to finally get things started.
