Ep 72 – Adding Plants to the Memorial Garden. Happy Birthday, Mom.

More work on the inexpensive memorial garden. It would have been my mom’s 75th birthday this year. We lost her19 years ago, and have still always celebrated her birthday. This year, I wanted to be sure to get the plants into the ground because she loved her summer flowers.

Garden Episode 5 – Sweet Potato Plants are Here. Container Garden?

We are trying out YouTube’s premier feature and you can watch this in a chat room with us at 6pm mountain time tonight!

Our sweet potato plants were shipped from Baker Creek Seeds! Ali is repotting a few things, and spending Mother’s Day working on plants.
Also, some more trail cam/game cam footage!
And Jet gets her first taste of the accordion. She’s not a fan.

Garden Ep 3 + Game Cameras

I’m beginning to take the plants out, at least during the day, to start the process of hardening them to go out into the garden full time. I’ve also started another tray of seeds, and I’m reconsidering the garden location for this year. We also went around today and pulled all the video from the game cameras. #gardening #deer #colorado #highaltitudegardening

Garden Episode 2 Now available on YouTube!

HUGE APOLOGY TO PATRONS! I forgot to add y’all into this video!
HUGE thank you to Patrons! Ryssa Chrysalis, Heather Bonnet-Hebert, & Tara Richards!
We added a 2nd grow light to the room, picked up some fertilizer for the seedlings, as well as some plastic cups and potting soil for some of the larger seedlings. Spring is coming!

It’s Time to Start the Garden!

I know that it’s only February, but local gardeners urged me to start my seeds NOW. So here goes this part of our adventure!
I got the grow lights as a lightning deal for $20 a piece, but they are $26 and some change last I checked.

The seed mat also went up in price and is now $12
