Stewarding dreams

I dream of a wide open space to call our own. A place where we can watch the sun stretch across the sky each day, admiring her rising and setting. A land that will become as familiar to us as a dear friend. A flourishing garden overflowing with sustenance and beauty in equal measure. AContinue reading “Stewarding dreams”

What can I do with leftover sourdough bread?

When you’ve put in the time and effort required to make a loaf of sourdough, you won’t be too quick to throw it away once it’s gone stale. Ideally, you will have consumed the majority of the bread while it was fresh, within the first day or two of baking. But this isn’t always possible.Continue reading “What can I do with leftover sourdough bread?”

Garden Journal: July 8th, 2022

Welcome to another garden journal! I so enjoy putting these together. It is a wonderful excuse to take a stroll through my garden with the camera and appreciate the progress that has been made throughout the season. I have a feeling these journals will be especially helpful next winter as I cozy up with aContinue reading “Garden Journal: July 8th, 2022”

How to prune tomato plants

Tomato plants don’t naturally want to grow the way we are accustomed to growing them. Left to their own devices, tomato plants will become a giant sprawling tangle of branches, leaves, and fruit. We tend to grow them in tomato cages or set up some kind of trellising device for more convenient harvesting, conserving gardenContinue reading “How to prune tomato plants”

Garden Journal: June 17th, 2022

So we may want to rebrand this as a bi-weekly(ish) garden journal because it just has not been happening every week like I planned. Nevertheless, much has grown since I last took you on a stroll through my gardens, and I’m excited to do so again today! Let’s start with the container garden, shall we?Continue reading “Garden Journal: June 17th, 2022”

Did I kill my sourdough starter??

Chances are, the answer is no. Unless you’ve poured it down the drain or thrown it in the trash, it (very likely) is not too far gone. Sourdough starters are way more resilient than we give them credit for. You could leave your little jar of starter in the back of your fridge for months,Continue reading “Did I kill my sourdough starter??”

How to harden off seedlings

My last frost date is finally approaching, and my seedlings are getting big and strong, just about ready for their more permanent outside homes. For almost two months now, I’ve coddled these little seedlings. I started with the best quality seed mix I could find, put my garden plans boldly down on paper, and calculatedContinue reading “How to harden off seedlings”

How to water propagate pothos plant

Propagating plants is super fascinating. It started with succulents for me. I had no idea that a new plant would grow from nothing but a leaf set out on soil! There are actually so many plants that can be propagated, or multiplied or reproduced, from a cutting of a parent plant. Pothos is a veryContinue reading “How to water propagate pothos plant”
