January Gardeners Dream & Scheme
January
can be a tough month for some people. Here in New England it’s cold,
snowy, and icy one day and the next its in the 50s, rainy and grey. The
sun shows up once in a while, faking us out from time to time making us
feel it should be warmer than it...

The Early April Garden
Spring
has finally come to southwestern CT. It's wet, cold and snowing one
minute and sunny and warm the next!  We've been working in our garden as
well as going to clients' gardens these last couple of weeks - not
letting the temperatures deter us too ...

The End of the 2014 Season
I wrote this blog entry back in early October in a
notebook. However, life got in the way of me sitting down and entering
it; a resolution is to be more diligent in keeping up with writing and
actually posting. Garlic Planting Season September
has been ...

Spring - ah how we welcome thee
How
does Connecticut greet the spring of 2015 but with 6 1/2 inches of
fresh powder!  The vernal equinox ushers in promises of warmer, more
colorful days ahead: a difficult thought when literally everything is
freshly recovered in a blanket of 6+ inches...

Chase away the Winter Blues and Plan Your Garden
Right now it’s raining on top of the three or more feet of snow that has accumulated this winter.  The groundhog cursed us by seeing his shadow and foretold of six more weeks of winter. It is historically now the 7 th snowiest winter on record in this south...

August/September - Where did the summer go?
It's difficult to imagine that Labor Day weekend has already come and
gone.  I have been negligent in writing a monthly blog entry this
summer.  Once again the busy season whirled by us - selling gardens;
installing gardens; going to events; talking to p...

Time to Dream and Plan
It's
5 degrees out this morning here in our neck of the woods.  It's even
colder where some of the kids are up at college like Burlington where
it's -18 right now and 4 degrees in Ithaca feeling like minus 4.  In
Boston where our other one is at it's 5 ...

Succession Planting - a great way to extend your season
It is that time in the season when temperatures begin to rise,
produce starts ripening and parts of our garden have emptying spaces.
The previous soil tenants of lettuce, kale and cabbage have been
harvested; and soon we will be pulling the garlic we pla...

Poor planning on your part doesn't constitute an automatic emergency on mine. [Unfortunately I haven't been able to get my children to adhere to this motto of mine:-)]
Introduction
Greetings and thanks for stopping by my page!
In my world, I am a mom and a girlfriend. I am the alpha to a four pack of Brittany spaniels, rescued by strays and slightly tolerated by two black cats. I am an entrepreneur, a photographer, an artist and gardener.  I love expressing myself creatively. After working for over twelve years for my brother's investment company, now working part-time has allowed me to pursue my passions, not that investing isn't one of my passions but I felt a tug to develop my own business - not in the financial industry.
Interestingly my research in the agribusiness sector has helped me and my partner develop our new company, Homegrown Harvest LLC.

I thank you for stopping by my page and I hope you enjoy my photography, digital artwork and various posts. I encourage you to leave me feedback when and where you can.
Thanks again.
