My vegetable garden ate my blog...

Or this, at least, is what I am blaming my absence on! I am such a kid... lol. Between work, family and getting the garden planted, time for writing has been sparse. 

Here is a quick look into the kitchen garden and a little taste of what I (and my vegetable garden) have been up to... 

Thai Basil

The highlight of this summer's herb garden is the Thai Basil, I am so-so-so in love with this herb! The aroma this Basil sets off is amazing... Whether catching the scent walking by in the yard, or wafting from the kitchen, this Thai Basil is like no other Basil I have ever tried. If you have the pleasure of finding some for yourself, be sure to grab it!

A Collection of Inspiring Garden Projects and Websites

With the garden of information that the internet quite literally grows on a daily basis, it can sometimes be difficult to uncover interesting websites or blogs among the overgrowth of weeds. My online travels this week encompassed topics from sustainable landscaping practices, edible landscaping, organic gardening concepts, to urban homesteading

The name had me immediately sold! An informative “urban organic” (HeavyPetal) blog from the West Coast of Canada, this is a site I look forward to checking back on!

Life on the Balcony focuses on container garden ideas and inspiration (Perfect, seeing as I was looking for some inspiration!). The site is well designed and full of great ideas to start your new container garden or build on your existing one.


This is a great resource website for those interested in farming and sustainable agriculture in the US.

Now, would this not be the ultimate field trip?!? 
This project first caught my eye many years ago.


This site has tons of information, be sure to find a comfy spot to sit before biting into this site!
