Learning Who We Are

Hello! My last post was about why we changed our name. As I have been thinking about the name change and what content to post on WordPress, Instagram and YouTube, I realized that I was having difficulty because we were still trying to figure it all out. Who are we? Thanks to the Instagram Account…

Garden Flower Power!

This year we are DEtermined to have a beautiful garden we can enjoy while keeping in mind the basic principles of permaculture with a concentration on attracting pollinators with a concentration on butterflies and solitary bees. I’VE RECENTLY RECEIVED SOME SEEDS I ORDERED! Yes, that’s right, I am very excited. Last year I ordered two…

Planning for Spring ~ Pansies

~Please click on photos for a better viewing experience~ The days are already starting to get longer! The news said the day would be one second longer than the previous day. I’ll take it and I’m starting to think about cool weather plants for Spring planting in the garden. This post is in response to…

FOTD: 12.16.19 ~ Day Lilly

~Please click on photos for a better viewing experience~ There were all kinds of Day Lilly plants already planted by a previous owner of our property. I didn’t recognize them at first because the Deerski Family started eating the plant as soon as it started growing. I finally realized what was going on and I…

Seeds Bring Hope: Coneflower

I can’t wait to see how many Coneflower plants pop up in my garden next season! I have sprinkled A LOT of seeds in anticipation of many coneflowers which will have to be protected from the Deerski Family because they like to nip off the flowers. This is in response to the Flower of the…

FOTD: 12.07.19 ~ Zinnia Misunderstandings

FOTD: 12.05.19 ~ Truly Deer Resistant ~ Poppy

Since our property is so “raw” right now, I had thrown down some wildflower seeds in the spring and a whole bunch of poppies sprouted up in an array of beautiful colors. The Deerski Family thought they were pretty, as well, and didn’t eat them so I’m adding this flower to my Truly Deer Resistant…

FOTD: 11.26.19 ~ Truly Deer Resistant ~ False Indigo

I was not familiar with False Indigo until we moved onto this property. It was planted by a previous owner of the property and the Deerski Family has no interest in this plant ~ None, Zilch, Nada. It took a little bit of research to figure out what kind of plant it was. I don’t…

FOTD: 11.23.19 ~ Truly Deer Resistant ~ Snap Dragon

We did not plant these, We can only guess that the seed fell out of a bird’s ~ A🐦🐦 ~ and it grew. This area by the Bay is heavily travelled by the Deerski Family and this photo was taken by me on November 5th so we deem the Snap Dragon a Truly Deer Resistant…
