The garden has officially been tucked in for a long winter’s sleep❄️ With another snow storm coming on Tuesday, it looks like we won’t see ground again for the foreseeable future. Rather, we’ll play my favorite winter game of watching the whiskey barrels disappear. Snow after snow slowly buries the barrels until they become past memories. Ta ta til Spring my garden💚
Let rosemary beget rosemary! While you can start some herbs from seed no problem, rosemary is usually not one of them. With a combination of low germination rate and slow growth, growing rosemary from seed is a lesson in patience. Growing rosemary via stem cuttings is a whole other story. The cuttings I posted last month are now shooting out roots. Out of the ten cuttings I started with, five have survived, so be sure to snip a few extra stems to offset any loss. And make sure to keep swapping out with fresh water every few days. Come January, these cuties will hopefully be transplanted into pots and ready to grow, grow, grow. Anyone else grow rosemary via stem cuttings? Care to share any tips with us 😀🙏💚

Lest you think #Lisbon is all street art and amazing architecture, I present a glimpse of nature’s beauty at the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian #jardim . Can you hear the water trickle through the pools?

Harvested my painted mountain corn and 2 cucumbers 🥒 (cucumbers were delicious 😋)
Corn turned out cute, vibrant and oh so miniature.
How incredible are the colours?! I’m either going to turn them into ornaments or harvest for next years seeds as these corn made it through the growing season and have the memory to grow in my growing conditions. Even though they’re mini I’m still in love with how they turned out and proud of the fact that I only pollinated them by hand only 1 day. They were in a good spot I feel. So now I’ll build up the soil with green manure over the end of year break and make plans for what will be next. Wish me luck 😄💕🌻🐝
Another cold day but I braved the cold and photographed some garden pics.
Thankfully the next week will be warmer!! Love this delicate look of heuchera (coral bells) spent flower.
