Arch full of flowers

Our DIY Garden Arch is finally full of Morning Glory flowers! We’ve enjoyed watching the vines grow up the arch and rejoiced when we got our first pretty blue flowers. We’ve yet to spot any Moon Flowers, but we’re still hopeful. Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was an arch full of flowers! What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please…

Ripened in our absence

We’ve been watching this heirloom tomato grow for a while now (we’re guessing it’ll be the last of the season) and it finally ripened in our absence!

Garden sharing with neighbors

These stunning peppers and tiny orange tomatoes came from neighbors on either side of us. We’ve lucked out with a huge zucchini crop this year, so we’ve been happily sharing. What fun to trade veggies from our gardens! Today’s #OneGoodThing with Mama was garden sharing with neighbors! Many thanks to Ti for the tomatoes and…

Our first sunflower from seeds

We planted a handful of Mammoth Sunflower seeds in our garden a few months ago and today we discovered our first lovely flower! We’ve got nearly a dozen eight-foot-tall stalks that are about to flower and we are very excited. Our first yellow bloom is about the size of my hand. This thrilling find was…
