I love this time of the year, when the days are long, the mornings are cool and garden firsts pop up! Well I call them that…you know what I mean? The first flower, the first veggie, the first berry. 🙂

Remember what the garden looked like in March?

My beautiful boxes!

Oh by the way, that is a garlic scape in the box. Trying to deter slugs, not sure if it will work. 🙂

Look at my beautiful zucchini plants!!! They are an heirloom type, cocozelle di napoli

I love your blog! I just started my blog so it may not be very good yet. 🙂 I’m hoping everyone understands my learning curve. Anyways, I love your garden! Did you know that if you get a bottle of jojoba oil, you can cram some calendula flowers in there, let it sit for a week or two you and use it on your skin? It makes this beautiful yellow colored oil that is delish for you skin! Please follow my blog, even if you don’t think it’s very good yet. I promise it will get better. 🙂


Thanks for the tip! I do use calendula in a healing salve but will try the jojoba oil. Good luck with your blog and don’t worry about mistakes and stuff, it took me a good 6 months to get mine going. If you want, tomorrow I will post for the blog hop and if you have something related to real food, homesteading, herbal, gardening then enter the blog hop. Lots of people see it.. 🙂


I don’t know what it is, but would love to learn more. I would be happy to contribute!


I did it I think. I entered the blog hop. Hopefuly I did it right! 🙂 Do I also need to put the link on my blog? If so, where do I put it? Thanks again!


Your garden looks great. We’re currently about a month behind in the UK with the all the cold weather we’re having but hoping my garden catches up with yours very soon!


Thanks Sophie! We are having weird weather here, it only started getting hot this past week.


Oh yes You do need a link. The best way is to copy either the text or the wild rafting Wednesday buttom at the bottom of the post before you click the enter area. If you have a problem let me know. 🙂


So I just add your link to my post and that links it?
Ok, I will try again next Wednesday.
It’s just way too confusing!! Haha
Thanks for you help!
