State of Our Deck Garden: August 2017

One of my dreams is to have a big yard with an epic garden – vegetable, herb, pollinator, and maybe some fruit trees – but for right now we have  deck with full sun, so I am making use of it! A picture is worth a thousand words, so a video must be worth even…

Our Summer Garden 2016

We expanded our garden this summer, and I am quite proud of it!  I grew several plants from seeds in the spring, including the basil, thyme, calendula, and chamomile.

Daily Rhythm: February 2016

This is our current daily “rhythm” in February 2016.  K 3 years , T 10-11 months.  We don’t follow it strictly; it is a flow and there is time for rest and play.  Sometimes, we have a “lazy day”(or two!)  when don’t follow the rhythm and just play and relax, but I notice that we…

Nesting Update: November 2nd
