A Bit About Me..
Now that I have found my photos and my computer is acting as it should I will give a bit of a profile.
I have recently retired ( for the 3rd. time. ) was going to try to make it to 80 ( only 2 years to go ) but due to the aging process had to call it quits, for now.
I am enjoying my garden even more now, moving, re-arranging etc. etc.
Yesterday I chopped up my rhubarb and managed to get about 6 new plants for myself and gave a couple away to my neighbours.
Some of the photos I have submitted, which are pretty much all in raised beds are doing so well and certainly are easy to mantain. I am going to have a great crop of blueberries this year and the raspberries, which are on the wooden trellis behind the fig tree are doing great. looks like I will have a good crop of figs this year too.
I don`t have a heated greenhous, instead have built two propagation trays. ( much more economical ) and start all my seedlings there.Tried a 6 inch long cucumber this year, in the hanging basket, also have `tumbler`` tomatoes in another basket plus basil. I defy the squirels to get at them. The rest of the veggies go into the raised beds, sprouting broccoli, lovage, parsley, squash, zucchini, roma toms etc.
You will see the Waspinator in the Laburnum tree, I hope it works.
The cottage studio is where I do my paintings ( watercolours ) – which I started a couple of years ago – also have an interest in most crafts.
When I was younger had bees, chickens, goats, sheep, and rabbits and built a smokehouse. A small farmette in the middle of West Vancouver. Not much static from anyone unless the bees swarmed. That is a different story though.
