Bucket of Squash Harvest

Hubby cleaned up our Vegetable Garden in preparation for cold season, so he got this much Bucket of Squash.

I still have a lot of cleaning to do on my backyard and just thinking about it makes me feel tired already. But that is the purpose of gardening, labour and see the fruit later.

I need to transfer some of my plants to have more room for my vegetables next year.

Garlic Bulbs for Planting

I have been waiting for the garlic bulbs to be available on store but they just don’t have it yet. And buying some garlic bulbs for planting online is ridiculously expensive. Then I found a seller who grow garlic on their own backyard for reasonable price. I drove just about 20 mins to  I pick 12 Garlic Bulbs for Planting.

I am so happy that my search for Garlic Bulbs for Planting is finally over. I can now grow garlic on my backyard. Although it’s still early to have Garlic Bulbs since I am planting it on my backyard sometime next month, I just want to make sure that I have the Garlic Bulbs because I seriously want to try growing Garlic on my own. And who knows, I might be able to sell it online someday.

Zucchini Cake Fresh from my Garden

I finally made my Zuccini Cake using one big Zuccini I harvested from my garden.

The recipe I got says to squeeze the juice of zucchini but I forgot to do it. Funny but I turned out to taste better because it made my cake more moist.

  • 3 Eggs (beat)
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

Bowl 2

  • 2 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Baking Soda

Starting to Grow Strawberries 🍓

My kids love strawberries so I thought of growing strawberries in my garden and hoping to grow more on years to come.

I purchased this strawberry plant last spring and I am so happy that it is starting to produce some fruits. Not only that, it is growing fast and producing new baby plants.

I am having a second thought of planting it directly on the ground or on pots. I have a dog so it has to be a high raise bed. 

It also said that strawberries shouldn’t be planted near vegetables or place where you previously grow vegetables, so I can’t plant them on my vegetable garden. 

Hence, I am  thinking of buying some nice pots for my strawberries to make it look nice to put somewhere in my backyard.

Growing Garlic Indoor Update

As I’ve mentioned on one of my posts, that I am Trying To Grow Garlic Indoor. Here is the update after less than three weeks since I planted the garlic cloves. I am still waiting for about 3 more cloves to sprout.

I am so happy to see some sprouts. I never thought that it will grow because the cloves that I planted were to get spoiled. But anyway, these batch I am planning to bring indoor before winter. I will plant more to grow on my vegetable garden on Fall to leave on winter, and hopefully to harvest more next summer

Parsley From My Garden

I am running out of dried parsley for cooking so, I harvested some parsley leaves from my garden to dry.

I washed it and hanged it outside for now. I will bring it inside when the water stops dripping and let it completely dry.

I have so many parsley plants on my garden because I thought it’s an annual plant. Parsley is perennial herb plant that dies on the winter and grows back on spring. 

There are different types of parsley but the one that I planted grows 4ft tall. The flowers look nice so I left it. But it started looking bad so I pruned it. I am planning to kill some of the parsley that I planted and leave one to grow.

Mosquitos Trapper

This Mosquito Trapper not only looks nice but it also work. I love the fact that not only that it catches mosquitos but it also trap those annoying moths.

At first, I though it was another fake advertisement, but then I realized that there are not much mosquitos to catch inside my house. So I put it outside just beside the sliding door going to my backyard. And yeah!!!! It work!!!
