Another cold wave of winter to announce that its term is going to end soon!

I love winter but this year I can’t wait for it to end so that we can enjoy sunshine and warm air.

I am so eager to come back to gardening this year.

Flower ice
crystal fern? 😀
hinged hoop-houses for the our planters – we just made those last weekend – just in time
3 days ago when we were making the higned hoop-house
When it came to the part where we apply the greenhouse cover on the frame, we got lazy :))
At least it works – minus those lettuces have been there forever. 😂

Another productive day well spent in the backyard

When we first moved to our house, our backyard was blank.

Around summer of 2018, we started our first project with concrete slab.

Then we started to build our backyard. Placing bricks around the fence, bricks for raised garden beds, planting grass, etc.

Everything in our backyard are from scratch. That’s how we love it so much even it’s not professionally beautiful but it’s our hardwork, sweat and love we’ve put in there.

Summer of 2018, we also made a little pathway for the trash bins area.
Fall of 2018

We’ve made several changes, planted so many vegetables.

I’ve had tomatoes, papaya, banana, winter melons, cucumber, lime, lemon, luffa, white mini eggplant, peppers, sun flowers, rosemary, mint, aloe vera, a lot of basils and other Vietnamese herbs and so many more that I can’t remember to name them all.

But when 2020 hit, I got lazy, I completely abandoned my yard the whole year. It was a stressful and frustrated year.

This year, I want to start gardening again.

Today we sowed broccoli, artichoke, okra, chilli peppers, eggplant, water spinach, snow peas, malanar spinach.

We’ve only lived here over 3 yrs but we’ve made this place our home sweer home. ❤
