I haven't been quite active lately... Can you guess why? For those who missed this story, my precious Queue de Rat radishes got devoured within 12h... Yup. My two glorious, three feet tall plants got eaten away by a gloutonous squirrel.

I was mad then.
I'm still mad now.
I know I shouldn't be.
But I am.

6 months, almost harvest ready.
Then two miserable branches left.
It's nobody's fault apparently, it's Nature's way...
But right now I'm blaming the stupid squirrel.

I know it's just a plant.
But is there such a thing as "just" a plant?
You gardeners can relate, there's so much that goes into one plant.

I have a tiny urban garden.
I don't mind sharing.
It's a place that brings me simple joy.
And simple peace.

With all that's going on right now,
I need my peace, I need my ground.

But now I'm mad, so I don't go in the garden anymore... But instead of shoving this feeling away, as it is too often the case in this lifestyle, I'm taking my time to live thought this feeling. And let it go, somehow, at my own rhythm. 🌸

So j'ai été très silencieuse ces derniers temps. Pouvez-vous deviner pourquoi...?! Pour ceux qui ont manqué cette histoire, mes magnifiques radis Queue de Rat ont été complètement dévorés par un écureuil.

Oui oui, mes deux beaux plants de trois pieds de haut, passés au carnage en 12h seulement.

J'étais furieuse.
Je le suis toujours.
Je ne devrais pas, je sais.
Mais je le suis.

6 mois de dorlottage, d'énergie.
Presque le temps de la récolte, plus que quelques jours...
C'est apparamment la faute de personne, c'est les lois de la Nature.
Mais moi je blâme le maudit écureuil.

C'est juste une plante tu diras.
Mais pour moi c'est plus que ça.
C'est un petit bout de bonheur.

J'ai un jardin minuscule.
Je veux bien partager.
C'est un endroit qui m'apporte tant de choses simple : bonheur et paix.
Avec tour ce qui se passe dans ma vie personnelle présentement; 
Ce sanctuaire est précieux.

Pour le moment, je suis fâchée, alors je laisse les zones négatives hors du jardin. Mais au lieu d'enfouir ce sentiment et de passer à autre chose, comme on le fait trop souvent dans nos vies effrénées, je prends le temps de la vivre. Tranquillement. À mon rythme.

More deer damage! 😡 There are way too many deer here in Wisconsin.  Come on Wisconsin DNR, figure out our deer problem!  Too many GMO crops grown around here so they like my organic food. They eat so much of the food I am growing! Frustrating!  #gardeningchallenge  #organicfarming #nogmo

Garden from hell! 
I had plans for the garden once I got my fence done (this just seems to be the new bloody fence) well I don't paint it cause it's not mine- it's next doors)... brilliant!! So plans have changed, I've tool advice from my garden lover Nan. And my mam and dad that have more experience of gardens than me! And been watching Alan Titchmarsh programme (I know I'm 24 and watching bloody Alan Titchmarsh - I feel a lot older than I am)

The new plan is to put curved boarders in, put big climbing flowering plants up the "fence" to stop a 2 year old from pulling and climbing on the already wobbly fence! Then put medium plants in the middle of curves and then little flowers around the fronts! 
Well lets hope this new plan works better than the first plan!

For life’s sake, I am allowing these bugs to feast on my edible greens. Considering their adverse effects on my precious #citrusfruittree and #greenpepperplants, I cannot promise that my tolerance will last forever. Respecting the right to co-exist in this world is a real challenge. The struggle, indeed, is real! 💙🧚🏿‍♀️💚

You know you love your chickens when you watch them play in the yard more than you watch tv 😂
.
.
However, there are ups and downs from having this many birds. These 50 girls and 3 roosters + 5 ducks destroyed my early garden last month 😬
.
.
As a consequence, they’ve had to stay in their chicken run the past few weeks to give my plants a chance to grow!
.
.
But, it’s almost time to let them roam the yard once again, (happy chicken dance)!🐓

Can you see any carrots in the first picture? Of course you can't! 😂😂😂 How about in the 2nd picture? Now you do! This is what happens when the weeds take over your life and you're finally getting to each row! Weeding in progress for the rest of the season... 😂😂😂 ... the story of my life! .

Summer Afternoons at the patio be like this 💁🏻‍♀️🍉
.
Whose in for some watermelon - mint salad 🥗 ?
.
Plucked a handful of home grown mint leaves to add the top punch to this perfect melon from the local farmer’s market 
It was soooooo goooooddd . Home grown herbs are the best and can liven up just about anything 🌿. Honestly , I can now tell home grown herbs from store bought ones and home grown is so much better . See now thats a lot of “home grown” in the last 3 lines . Sorry 😐
.
.
What summer recipes are you trying ?!?
