Gardening week Continued



I promise I will be getting back into the sewing room soon and giving all my quilting buddies a break from all this gardening talk. However, at this time of the year the garden comes first. If I want to enjoy all the fruits (and veggies) of my labour then I have to plant the suckers first..LOL

Last night Mr.P and I got back to the garden in hopes to finish most of it. I still had a hard time trying to figure out what to put in the last spots. Sometimes you get so afraid of doing something wrong that you just don’t want to do it anymore and that is how I was feeling about the garden. Finally Mr.P said it doesn’t matter if it grows or not at least you will learn what not to do next year. He was right so I made some decisions and we got the last couple of sections planted.

Here are some pictures or everything planted. Now all they are pictures of dirt and sticks..But I will show you them anyhow. I am going to the city to buy tomatoes today and my seedlings are not in yet as there has been frost in the mornings still...but for the most part the main garden in planted. You'll have to ignore the dandelions
Herb Garden
Cilantro, parsley, oregano, basil, anise, tarragon, marjoram, mint, chamomile, rosemary



Onion plot
4rows red onions, 5rows white, 2 rows leeks, 2 rows bunching onions, 1 row pickling onions, 2 rows spinach, 2 empty rows for spinach to seed in a few weeks

Cabbage plot
2 Brussels spouts, 2 rows broccoli, 3 rows cauliflower, 2 rows cabbage, 2 rows pak choi


Potato Plot
4 rows Yukon Gold, 3rows Norland, 3 rows Blue Russian

Mixed plot

1 row purple kohlrabi, 1 row white kohlrabi, 1 row Detroit beets, 1 row chiogga beets, 1 row touchstone gold beets.

Tomato plot

Pea and squash plot
3 rows peas, 1 row turnips, 2 hills of butter nut squash

Sweet potato
This is a 30 by 10 plot and I have 5 sweet potato slips. Am i giving them too much room?

This is the new garden. It's kind of hard to see in this picture, but it is the part that is more dirt that grass. I have pumpkin and spaghetti squash seedlings that are going to go in here on Saturday. I don’t like walking in there as I hear mice (in my head I am sure) and I am afraid they are going to crawl up my pants...lol Mr.P’s solution...don’t wear pants...LOL


So there you go this my garden at the end of May. Fingers crossed this will be a good year for the garden.

WIP- Garden edition



Last night Mr. Pickles and I were able to get in a few more rows in the garden. After we had planted everything I realized that I may have made a HUGE error in my planting. I will tell you what we all got planted and then I will tell you what I think the problem is.

Okay so in section 2 which is 30 x 10 we planted
 1.       Brussel Sprouts – Seeds 
 2 .    Broccoli- seedlings  
 3. Cauliflower-direct sow       
 4. Cabbage- transplants     
 5. Broccoli- direct sow   

6.  Cabbage-transplants      
7. Cauliflower- transplants      
8. Cauliflower- transplants
      9.       Broccoli-transplants
     10.   Pack Choi
     11.   Pack Choi

Section 3 which is 30x10 we planted 
   1.       Potatoes- Yukon gold 
   2 .       Potatoes- Yukon gold
   3.       Potatoes- Yukon gold
   4.       Potatoes- Norland
   5.       Potatoes- Norland
   6.       Potatoes- Norland
   7.       Potatoes- Blue Russian
   8.       Potatoes- Blue Russian
   9.       Potatoes- Blue Russian
   10.   Potatoes- Yukon gold

Section 4 which is 30x10 we planted 
   1.       Chioggia Beets
   2.       Detroit Beets
   3.       Touchstone Gold beets
   4.       Vienna White Kohlrabi
   5.       Purple Kohlrabi
   6.       Empty- fall Beets
   7.       Empty- fall Beets
   8.       Empty- fall Beets
   9.       Empty-fall Kohlrabi
   10.   Empty- fall kohlrabi
   11.   Empty- lettuce?
   12.   Empty - lettuce?
   13.   Empty- Radish?
   14.   Empty -Radish?
   15.   Empty- Radish?
   16.   Carrots-tender long
   17.   Carrots-tender long
   18.   Carrots tender long
   19.   Carrots- rainbow

So here is my problem. I am running out of room to plant my tomatoes. If I plant them in section 5 are they going to be too close to the potatoes which are 14 feet away? Also if they are planted in section 5 are they going to be too close to my Kohlrabi which will be 2 feet away. However the next problem is that if I plant them in section 6 they are going to be getting shade by 6pm and they will be in the same area as my potatoes were last year and were there was blight 2 years ago. So long story short I think I just screwed up!!

I also still have a lot to plant. If tomatoes go in as section 5 I have to fit the rest into section 6 and 7 which get shade by 5. Mr.P did till me a new 18x18 garden in part of our back land. I think it is in a silly spot, but it will get full sun. My worries with the new garden are that there are A LOT of mice back there and I am afraid that they will get at whatever I plant.

Bush beans section 7?
Hot Peppers section 7?
Eggplants  section 7?
Broad beans section 7?
Eadame section 7?
Lettuce- possibly will plant in section 4?
Radishes 3 types- possibly will plant in section 4?
Tomato section 5?
Peas section 6?
Cucumbers section 6?
Spaghetti squash- possibly will plant in new garden plot?
Zucchini section 6?
Pumpkin- possibly will plant in new garden plot?
Butternut squash section 6?
Sweet potatoes - possibly will plant in new garden plot?
Parsnips section 7?
Turnips section 7?

So that is where I am right now....lots of information hey...lol

I will leave you with one Picture. Here is my sweet potato. Now if I am correct I just twist off they slips and put them into a jar of water until they get roots...and then I can plant them. Should be interesting..lol

The garden is....


Well almost all in and by almost I mean hardly in...Lol

On Sunday Mr. Pickles got home at about 1 and I made the decision that we would get at least half the garden planted before we had lunch.  “They” were calling for rain by 3 and for it to last for 3 days so I wanted to get something in!!

Now in the past I just made 30foot rows with about 4 feet between rows. I would either seed the whole row with one veggie or divide it in half. Last year I had 25 rows. My mother came out and helped me plant the garden and it took us about 2 hours and everything was in and watered.

However as you all know I switched up how I am planting things in the garden this year.  The first change is my mother wasn’t helping me, but Mr.P was. In the past when my mother helped we grabbed what we needed and were off. When Mr.P helps we have to have everything down to an exact science. No estimating on much space between rows or just using a stick that seems about right.  we needed to cut exact measuring sticks...lol He has a point, but that must have taken about 30 mins to find out how long everything needed to be, find wood and then cut it.

The next fun part was getting Mr.P to make the rows and plant things. I just have a 10’ x10’ section on my plan that says RED ONIONS. In my mind I figured we would just measure out 10ft and then make some rows that were spaced 1 foot apart. Easy peasy right!??!! I was wrong...lol I think it would have been easy if I would have done it, but Mr.P is very specific. rows must be PERFECT, perfect length, perfect depth...lol When it came time to actually planting the onions he wanted to know exactly how may went in each row. My reply was “here is a handful, start planting and if it isn’t enough I will give you more if it is too much go to the next row....LOL  Now there wasn’t any fighting or yelling just A LOT of questions and my answering that ITS JUST A GARDEN....lol

So fast forward 2.5 hours later and what did we get done!! Not much. It is a lot more work doing smaller rows.

 In our first 10’x10’ section we got
4 -10ft rows of red onions
3- 10ft rows of leeks from seed
2 -rows of transplanted leek seedlings

Second 10x10 section
5- 10ft rows of yellow onions
2- 10ft rows of bunching onions
1- 10ft row pickling onions

The last section is just 8x8. It is shady most of the day, always wet and produces chick weed like crazy.
2 -10ft rows of spinach
I was thinking of putting some pak Choi in this section too....But Instead I figured if the spinach starts to come up then I will plant 2 more rows in a week.

So that is all that we got done. By that time it was 3:30 and we were hungry, by the time lunch was over the wind had picked up and it started to rain. So that was all the planting we got done. I still have 23 10x10 sections to plant.........This is A LOT more work than normal and I am regretting making the change already.........but everything I read said this is the better planting option..So we are sticking with it!

We planted the area between the sticks it doesn't look like 30ft by 10 ft but it is!
This is 18 rows!!! I usually only plant 25 rows in my whole garden!

Mishmash


I have a few ideas running around my head today as to what to post on and since they are all kind of short I thought I would include them all together.

I didn`t get any sewing done on Friday night to show for sewing Saturday. We went to the horse races instead in hopes to win money to buy more fabric...lol Okay that is not the reason why we went, but why not right...LOL

You may have noticed a new button on the sidebar that reads. Quilting Bloggers Logo Michelle the lovely host of the Quilting Gallery has created a directory of quilting bloggers from around the world. I have used the directory before and for some reason never thought about adding mine to the list. After receiving a reminder in her newsletter about signing up I thought hey I should add mine and I did.

After all the rain we had the garden is finally starting to dry out. We have company this week-end so the garden is going to have to wait yet again. However, the weather has been very cool here. We even dipped below Zero to a chilly -3C. Nothing like a risk of snow at the end of May...lol Oh well the garden will get in when it gets in! They are calling for rain again today, but only starting at 3. I am hoping Mr.P can get home from work before then so we can get a little bit in. My initial plan was to just put in my root crops however it is late enough in the month that I am just going to start planting according to my garden plan.

That’s it for today no pictures, no exciting stories. However June 1st is going to be my 1 year blog anniversary so stay tuned for a wee little giveaway J

Awww shucks


 
A couple of weeks ago Steve from Mr. Tomato King kindly awarded me the Sunshine award.

The Sunshine Award is a lovely orange flower that bloggers give to other bloggers who "positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere".


I was tickled pink to receive this award. Thank you very much Steve. If you are unfamiliar with Steve`s blog Mr. Tomato King I highly suggest you go and check it out. There are always great tips about gardening along with wonderful stories about Bramble the dog as well as Dill and Anna the horses. To top this off he lives in one of my Favourite places, Brittany, France.

There are rules with this award and I fear I might have to break one of them:

Thank the person (or people) who gave this award and write a post about It.-Done

Answer the questions on your favourites below. See Below

Pass on the award to 10 fabulous bloggers' link to their blogs, and let them know you've awarded them. 

Now there are more than 10 blogs I would love to give this award too. However, so many blogs are now ``award free``. So I figured instead of stepping one toes, creating hurt feelings either way or checking and rechecking blogs to see if they accept awards or not. I am just going to suggest that you check out 10 blogs from my sidebar. I have chosen to follow them since they bring some sunshine into my life. So click on a few that you are unfamiliar with and maybe they will brighten your day too :)

Okay on to the questions
Favourite Colour –Blue! I don`t know why I just like it best!
Favourite Animal –I love dogs. We currently have one dog named Zada.. She is a pit bull cross with lab and maybe a few more,  She has to be the most loving, docile dog I have ever met. We also have 4 cats but I wouldn`t say they are my favourites...lol
Favourite Number – I have always liked 13 or 30.
Favourite Drink –Nothing beats a nice cold beer on a hot day. However, I am mainly a water girl.
Facebook or Twitter – I have account on both. I use FB to play games and I haven`t been on twitter for over a year. I didn`t have any friends to follow...and following celebrities or news programs was getting depressing..lol
Your Passion – My family, cooking, gardening, crafting, sewing...and just life in general...lol

Plans don’t always go as planed


As you may recall my big plans for the long week-end were to get my garden in. However, that didn’t happen. Friday was rainy, Saturday and Monday Mr.P worked all day and evening at the farm and Sunday we were away from the house for most of the day. I am very disappointed since I was looking forward to getting it in a week earlier this year. Today it is pouring outside and they are calling for rain for the next 3 days. So that is going to set me back a few more days too.  At this rate I think I might have my garden in a week later than last year.

I have slowly being hardening off my seedlings. I hurt myself bringing everything up and down the stairs and bending down so often, but at least they are getting to spend some time outside. For the most part I think they are doing okay. My artichokes and parsley died and quite a few of my broccoli/cauliflowers are limp. Their leaves are starting to curl so I don’t think they will survive. The onions and leeks are so weak that I don't see how I can plant them in the garden. I also bought some mint last week it died a day later...lol I think I might have a bit of a black thumb this year. Let’s hope it’s not a sign of things to come in the garden.


Yesterday was such a beautiful day that I was tempted to try and get it in on my own. Nonetheless all the bending from doing laundry knocked me on my butt so I thought trying to dig and plant wasn’t going to be the smartest thing I had done in awhile...LOL Oh well it’s just a garden and when it gets in it gets in right. I must say I am glad that the surgery was at the beginning of the month, but maybe it would have been better done in June so I could have gotten the garden in first...LOL


The good thing about the rain is that I don’t feel guilty for not being able to go outside and do anything. The bad thing is that it means I should get my butt into gear and do a bit of cleaning. However, I think a good nap is in order instead JowHHoo

Sewing Saturday


Finally after what seems like forever I am doing a sewing Saturday post. I also signed up to take part in Friday Night Sew in...Since I was going to be sewing on Friday anyhow...! So go on over and see what everyone else did last night!

Handmade by Heidi


I really wanted to get my last two blocks done for two of the bees that I am in. Our May host for the international stashes bee Shauna requested a raw edge circle with grey background and then what ever colour we wanted for the circles. I choose blue. I have never sewn circles before and this block had me shaking in my boots. What made it even scarier was that she requested not one 13.5x13.5 block, but FOUR OF THEM!! So that made it FOUR TIMES SCARIER!! Nonetheless, I got it done and guess what. I am pretty darn good at sewing circles....who knew!

My stitches actually matched up when I sewed around the circle....WOW


The back...still a circle

Here is a picture of the circles before they got sliced up. 

Here they are all mixed up and guess what....still circles!! What the heck, eh? 

This makes one big 26X26 square...sooo big!

For the Wonky Bee our May host Cherry also chose circles, but requested them to be appliqué and of course....WONKY. For this bee you send the fabric out to everyone. It’s neat to take a peek at other peoples fabric it makes you think hey I need some of that...LOL
I think my wonky circles might be more eggs than circles...but they are wonky. I hope she likes them. I really enjoy doing appliqué it’s just so easy draw, cut, iron, cut, iron and easy peasy you have a cool square! Cherry also provided us with the thread she would like us to use to sew them down. I just have to ask if we are doing that by hand or on the machine and then I will be done with my bees for the month!!! YAY ME!!!!



I hope everyone is having a great day

Getting the Garden Ready!


On Monday night Mr. Pickles brought the garden tractor from the farm over to our place to till the garden. This was the first time I had seen the truck bed come off so I took a few pictures.  I held my breath the whole time thinking the tractor would fall off and then celebrated by cheering and clapping when it is all over. Mr. P thought I was crazy...LOL

Just starting to bring up the bed

Really starting to see it moving up now 

Even higher...gulp!! 

Front of the bed safely on the ground....but tractor at steep angle!!...double gulp!! 

Garden tractor safely on the ground...phew!!!! 


On Tuesday Mr.P tilled the garden for me. Look how pretty it all looks now. I am hoping that today we and by we I mean Mr.P will be able to get in my root crops. I stupidly marked out my 10ft sections, stupid because I shouldn’t be bending over. However my calculations over the winter for the new garden layout suggested that I would be able to get 9 10ft sections with 2ft between sections. And guess what I WAS RIGHT...now that doesn’t happen too often. I now have to divide each section into 3 sub sections and then I can start planting. I only want to divide the sections as I plant as to not pack down the dirt too much.

Mr.P tilling the garden

West side of the garden...and the pitch fork....lol 

East side of the garden 

The whole garden tilled!!!! 

On Tuesday Mr.P also started mowing down the back 3 acres of land. It for the most part is all over grown. The rough cut mower only cut off the tops of everything. There is quite a lot of undergrowth and it makes it feel quite springy when you step on it. So we are not sure what we are going to do back there now...lol  At least mowing some of it down is a start!! here is the before picture....Our land goes all the way to the barn in the back and then there is a lot more to the right and left of this picture too. Right now only about 1/4 of this picture is done....so the after picture it still a Work in Progress!

Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard


On the week-end my parents came out to make sausage. Our plan was to start at 10am and get 3 different types of sausage made. My father picked Smoked Polish Kielbasa, My Mother picked Irish Breakfast sausage and Mr.P choose Mild Italian sausage. 

The morning started off poorly or should I say rotten! When my father opened up the pork roasts he bought the day before a great stench came from the bag. It was beyond anything I had ever smelt before and I have smelt some pretty bad things...lol At first thought it was just the blood in the bag as sometimes that can give off an unpleasant odour. The roasts best before date was May 24th and it looked perfect so we figured it couldn’t be rotten.  The roast was washed and the smell got worse and then worse. My father cut into the roast and can you believe it the smell got even worse to the point where we almost had to leave the house do to the rotten egg, rotten flesh smell...in case you hadn’t figured it out already....it was pretty darn smelly....LOL

So that put a damper in our sausage making day. We put the roast into 2 garbage bags and the sucker still smelt. It went into the freezer and it still smelt...finally it went into the back of the truck box and we stayed away. We tried calling around to some of the smaller grocery stores in the area to see if they carried any pork shoulder, they did not. So my father drove the 40mins back to the city to buy some more at a different store of course.

We ended up starting to cut/grind meat at 12pm and then my father mixed up his 15lbs of sausage and we let it sit until Mr.P got home. At that point the guys started getting the smoker up and running and my mom started to mix her 7.5lbs of sausage. Once the smoker was smoking Mr.P mixed his 7.5lbs and after a quick clean up we were ready to start stuffing.

Now did I take any pictures of the smoker or of us making the sausage..........no I didn’t think of that until this morning when I was typing this post...LOL  Did I take any pictures of the sausage......just a few and then are not that great. But here they are

We made some sausage patties out of the Irish Breakfast sausage....I should have taken the top paper off for the picture...lol

Irish Breakfast sausage 

Smoked Polish Kielbasa Getting a bath 

Each couple got one bag with all that Smoked Polish Kielbasa 

This is where the picture for the Italian sausage would be if I took one...LOL

Making 30 pounds of sausage in one day was a bit too much for all of us and by the end of the night we were all exhausted. All of the sausages were a success though one or two may be on the salty side, but still good. The Italian sausage Mr. P chose to make won out as best sausage for sure. Next time we plan on just making one type and making a whole bunch of it...but that will be in the future. Right now we have 3 grocery bags of sausage to eat!

So that was the hi-light of what has been going on in my kitchen in the last week. I am linking up with Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard hosted this week by Jody at Spring Garden Acre.

On a side note today is Mr. Pickles Birthday!!! Happy Birthday Mr.P I love you so very very much!!

Have a great day

WIP 16/05/12

Well I must say, I seem to have a reoccurring theme going on this month of saying that I haven’t done much sewing. I guess I have a good excuse, but I must admit with everyday I am not able to sew something I am slowly not wanting to sew anything either. I am sure once I start again I won’t be able to stop...lol  I was able to cross one item off my list so at least its something!

Today I am linking up with WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced and @The Needle and Thread Network.  Make sure you hop on over there and see what everyone else is working on too.

Seedling update part 2


Yesterday I showed you what my seedling looked like before surgery and now I thought I would show you what they look like 11 days later. The pictures are not the greatest since I couldn’t really bend down to take them.Since Mr.Pickles had already watered them I wasn't about to pull them out just to take pictures......but you get the general idea..LOL

Cabbage, Pumpkin, and Spaghetti squash are still on vacation over at the MIL and hopefully Mr.P will bring them home today.

The tractor came over last night and Mr.P is going to till the garden today pictures on that later.


 Basil


The Peppers

The eggplants 

Artichokes 

Brussel sprouts 

Parsley 

Leeks 

The cauliflower and broccoli
