New Blogs: 6 June 2018

This week’s a Six on Saturday week – the ten blogs I’ve added to the list are all participants in the Six on Saturday meme (to find out more, click here). Apart from requests to add a particular blog, trawling through blogging memes is a great way to find blogs which are new to me (and maybe to you too) to add to the list here. Joining in with memes is also a great way to meet other bloggers and introduce them to your blog as well as read theirs.

So without further ado, here’s another ten blogs for your enjoyment. Pour yourself a glass (or cup) of your favourite brew, relax and read away. I would suggest simply sticking a straw into the bottle of wine but I’m trying to reduce use of plastic so I won’t.

As usual, these blogs have already been added to the alphabetical lists. As it’s relevant to this update, a reminder that blogs whose titles start with numbers are indexed as if the number is written in words.

County Gardening

This site is all about my attempts, using micro gardening, to bring cohesion and beauty to our large rural property in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada. It’s also about my jorney learning about photography.

Experiments in Propagation

I’m a software engineer that has always loved plants. I like to garden and landscape in my backyard, and I love to experiment with growing plants of all types.

In particular, I like native landscaping/native growing, permaculture, traditional landscaping, sustainable landscaping, propagation, exotic plants and seed collection,

I live in Brier, Washington, which is located about 20 miles north of Seattle.


Gardens at Coppertop

Welcome! I began this online gardening journal in March 2014 with the goal of chronicling these gardens on Coppertop Trail while learning to care for them. The gardens are what first drew me to this mountainside home.

We purchased these five acres on the northern Olympic Peninsula in Washington State in late 2013 and moved into our home in early 2014. About half of the land is wild forest, and the other half was beautifully landscaped by the original owners/builders since 2001 with an abundance of perennials, bulbs, trees, native plants, climbing vines, shrubs, herbs, groundcovers, vegetable and flower beds, berries, and a small orchard. A stream bisects our land, flowing into a pond, then out through a wild, marshy area. The soil toil is continuous, but the joys are never-ending as well. This view eases the labor.

My Half Acre

My name is Christine and I am a university administrator/aspiring gardener. For the bulk of my life, I lived in urban areas, forced to be content with window boxes and tiny grass plots. That all changed when my spouse and I decided to pull up roots and move to suburbia.

Throughout the December 2016 – February 2017, we visited house after house looking for a property that needed little upkeep on the inside and had huge potential outside. In March, we viewed a home that was situated on a half acre of land in a small town in suburban Boston. Despite the beautiful interior, the work outside was daunting….

30daysofwildparenting

Hello and welcome to my 30 days of wild blog. I am a primary teacher and new dad. Nature has always mattered to me, but since discovering I would be becoming a father nine months ago my love of the wild has taken on a new meaning. The world my daughter is coming into is facing many problems. We face an energy crisis, potential food shortages, global warming along with large sections of wilderness disappearing across the world in the name of “progress”. Species taken for granted in my childhood are becoming increasingly rare. Not the best time to be bringing a child into the world.

That’s it for this week. I’ll be back next Wednesday with another ten blogs. Until then, enjoy your garden.
