A journal documenting the trials and tribulations of gardening on the rocky coast of Downeast Maine. My attempt at keeping in touch with my many friends and loved ones who live all across the nation.

I've been quite pleased with the performance of the heirloom "Grandpa Ott" morning glories, despite having had to fertilize them way too much in order to cover the trellis. I'm beginning to get more blooms now, and will look forward to another month or so of beautiful, deep purple blossoms with a lilac center.
Gardening and knitting fanatic! I love digging in the dirt (what little I have of it!) My zone 5 garden is located on 2 1/2 heavily wooded, rocky acres on the coast of Downeast Maine and is shared by Hubby and our two cats, Spike and Sluggo. When unable to garden, I love to knit, cook, pursue my photograpy, bake and read numerous other blogs.
