Back to my Roots

Every so often I like to reorganize my labels on this blog, this inspired me to read a couple posts from when I first started this blog over year ago.

Something caught my eye...
May 2009, I was trying to pull up roots from Alder bushes with a pick ax. I was hopeful that we could then just fill in the holes with some dirt and then grow some grass. I ended up taking a tumble down the hill... determined that this is how Jack and Jill tumbled down the hill, I walked home. I was dirty and disgruntled.

This May, I was working on my garden. Every day, while walking to my garden I would trip on these stumps hanging out of the ground. Alder stumps... make mama say GRRR

So one hot May afternoon, I found myself trying to dig up yet another stump with a pick ax. I was successful with this one... what was discouraging however was the fact that there are at least 20 of them to remove. Eventually that whole section will be garden, with some benches and a hammock. I have a feeling however that next May, I will be out there once again, tripping over stumps until I become frustrated once again.... Perfect example of history repeating itself, wouldn't you say!

Oh, here are some low quality picture of my garden flourishing... next year I will start earlier for multiple harvests.

I have Potatoes, Ambercup Squash, Cucumbers, a Salad Bush, Scotia Tomatoes, Cherry Tomatoes, Green Peppers and Celery growing. I do have a row of carrots with a few carrots in the row. I also planted a row of  Spinach but the seeds were not good. I tried to Chit some later and nothing sprouted... Next time. My mother told me of a local place that guarantees their seeds. I'm going to start collecting in the fall because I plan on starting some things indoors over the winter.
