My Maine Veggie garden

Category: Country Living | Posted: Wed Jul 16, 2008 1:11 pm

I thought I would take a moment and write a little here today. I just game in from the garden after finding those awful, destructive Colorado beetles on my potato plants again. They can cause so much damage in such a short time, it's amazing. I am trying to have as organic a garden as I can so home concoctions is what I am using. It seems as though I am always at war with something that wants to keep me out of the garden or cause damage to my crop. The last month my battle has been with the famous Maine black flies. Beware, don't ever visit Maine during our black fly season. My garden is small for what I would like to plant in but it's all I can handle on my own. here is a list of the veggies I currently have growing in the garden. I am still working on getting pics on this blog as well as in the forum chat. I took some nice pics this a.m with the morning dew as the sun was just rising.

Potatoes (2 kinds)
Summer squash (2 kinds)
radishes
onions
arugula
lettuce
green beans
yellow beans
tomatoes (2 kinds)
cuckes (2 kinds)
pumpkins
cabbage
carrots
beets
dill
basil
parsley[/img]

Moving from city to country

Category: Country Living | Posted: Fri Jul 11, 2008 5:47 pm

WELCOME!
I am new to this "blog", thing, so please understand as I am sure I will be making many errors.
It was a major change when I decided to move from Massachusetts to Maine three years ago. I lived in a town with a population of over fifty thousand and came to this little village with a population of less than a thousand. I had no idea that there would be such a difference. I bought a 200 year old farm house with 25 ac. I wanted pets and lots of room for gardening. My hopes were to open a nice country Bed & Breakfast. That hasn't happened yet but I still would like to someday. I have my yellow lab, Buster, my siamese cat, Baron, and lots of chickens.
Winters in this part of the country are brutal with temps dropping to as low as 25 below and the snow is relentless.
I hope to share lots of ideas with others and look forward to hearing from folks.
