The Spring has Sprung

The weather is still cold but the garden is open for another season of growing. I brought my toolbox over to the garden. But I have yet to find the time to set up the fences and to sow the seeds. The peas must go in the garden first among the lettuces and radishes. I have also started some seeds indoor like tomato, tomatillo, ground cherry tomato and cucamelon. They are too young to go into the garden. Once the soil temperature reaching up to 60 degrees F I can transplant them outside. By then the green beans and cucumbers can go into the soil.

I had a good time harvesting lots of cucumber last year. I am planning to use the same method this year. Last year, I grow lots of cucumber seeds and I let them rambling on the ground. The cucumbers are abundance and they are very juicy and sweet. I cannot wait to see what happen this time in the garden. My hours in the garden might be lesser but I think I can managed.

I hope I get lots of rain this season. It is difficult to water the plants everyday. The garden area is 30 by 60 foot. I had to use the pump and it usually take up to an hour to water all the plants.

I will deeply thinking of you Grandma when I am in the garden raking and hoeing the soil. May you rest in peace.

Lovely Snow

We were blessed with lots of snow last week. I spent more than 7 hours to clear the walkway and the driveway. I am glad no one is injured. The neighbor was nice to stop over and asked if we need help. We have 2 snow blower and a shovel, which was enough to handle. Winter is not going away for couple more months and I am already excited to start gardening again. This year, 2016 will be a challenge for me since it will be farther to drive back to the garden from work. But I am sure I can manage.

I may be printing my present on the web but to tell you the truth, I am a very shy person. My 30 year of high school friend was asking me to create a video about myself. I don’t know what to say other than I do miss them very much. 5 years we spent the time together brought us with so many memories. I will never forget them.

Welcome 2016

Time do flies.
I am saying goodbye to the year of 2015 and welcoming 2016 with lots of hope and positive vibes. I am going to face the upcoming obstacles with strong mind, physically and spiritually. 2015 is leaving me with lots of good memories despite of getting the worse news ever. I am sure there is nothing I cannot handle. If I have survived all these years, I am sure another year will make no difference.
I went to the store yesterday looking for a new door to the house. It make me thinking that this door is going to be a good sign. A good entrance to the house sort of reflecting on the good health and wealth to the new year 2016.
Just like in the past years, I do not set any new year's resolutions. I have stop doing that since it never change every year. I will be doing the same thing every seasons. I will start gardening in Spring, harvesting the vegetables in Summer and clean up the garden in Winter.
As time permits, I will showcase my cooking in my cooking blog and update my activity in this one.
Happy New Year!
