I finally got a rooftop garden! I didn't find out until June, so I was a bit late starting. Now the kale won't stop and I've harvested the basil once already.
I just started some spinach and chard from seed (for the first time!). It's mid-season, so I've no idea how they will get along. But I love this little "life hack" of re-using old salad containers as mini greenhouses. It keeps the wee seedlings moist, and mostly (fingers crossed) protected from the dreaded slugs.
Has anyone else used this method before? I welcome any comments on starting seeds mid-season like this too!
I’m off to beautiful Hornby Island for one week starting tomorrow! An actual real girl’s only holiday with nothing to do but sit on the beach, sunbathe and lounge in the hot tub.
However . . . I’m not the type of person who “does nothing” for a week - I get bored.
So I’m taking along a bag o’ jewels and I’ll be doing some fun in the sun photo-shoots with my lovely lady-friends!
Look for new pieces to be uploaded on the site in this coming week. Lots of OAK: One of A Kind pieces will be added. If you see something you love, snap it up and I’ll ship it out upon my return on July 29th.
I'm so excited to have good weather for this weekend's Folk Bazaar at the Vancouver Folk Fest this year! Last year it rained. Hard. 'Nuff said about that.A bunch of us friendly artisans have banded together and asked to be placed next to each other. We don't know exactly where exactly we will be in the Folk Bazzar, but look for a group of including Adhesif Clothing, A Cagey Bee, Yapes Paints, and Raven's Rest Studios. And because we are outside the official gates, it's totally free to get into the Folk Bazaar and while away the afternoon shopping whilst listening to the music spill over from the main stage. If you've never been to the Folk Fest before, check out my blog post from a few years back.
