And now in pictures!

The one and only Pablano

Last harvest was pretty small

It started turning red just before it rotted off the stem. Still tasty!

Harvest cooked with the last cherry tomatoes

No before pics of the garage--it was all piled in the center from move in day.

This is Pooper, the neighbors dog who likes our yard for some reason...
 She leaves us treats, we give her treats...

After 4 years this unknown rescued Clematis blooms! Outside the fence! The ingrate.

Little star creeper creeping nicely!

Nothing but admiration here. See Cinder blocks for old pics

Too cool for school Sunflower

Love the pointy leaves here

Never noticed Nasturtiums look menacing.

Roses are too easy for photos

Favorite sunflower again

Stay tuned for the faucet and microwave from hell in the coming posts.


  1. Hello! I found your blog through Catherine at A Gardener In Progress. You have done a ton of work on your new house and garden. I've skimmed through some of it but really like that new patio!! And, mulch to vegetables so quickly. Good job. By the way, your fish at the top of this blog are too fun! I'll be back.

  2. Your patio looks really good. I'm trying to convince my husband to get rid of our deck and do something like that.
    You've got lots of pretty flowers blooming. The Clematis reminds me of 'Henryi' or another one of mine that I can't think of now...
    Faucets can be so much fun, we've replaced all them in our house since we moved in. Plumbing jobs are one of my least favorite.


I always appreciate input, advice, ideas and telling me I'm doing it wrong. So chime in!
