This is a long one, mostly about things I want to remember. Read on if you'd like! So much is going on my head spins sometimes! My sister, brother-in-law, and I haven't had a visit in a while. They came yesterday bearing gifts in the form of delicious brownies and some very old beautiful plates… Continue reading 03.11.21 Sister Visit, Social Security, Teeth, Vegetable Garden, Vehicles, Precious Lisa, Microwave, Tiny Planter
I will be 66 soon and Roy will be 70 in January. Our growing up lives were very different than the lives of those growing up now. We have memories of odd things in our past. Odd to those growing up now but very natural to us. I saw these photos recently and they brought… Continue reading 07.28.20 Who remembers using or doing this…..?
This blog post has been in the making for quite a while. I am so thankful that the project and this blog post is completed! I believe that adding a patio with a patio cover was one of the best things we've done. Yes, we (meaning Roy, not me) built a 27 x 16 patio… Continue reading 07.25.20 The new addition to our home and Roy’s new techy toys!
I looked back at last year's Chauvin Produce Company blog post for the end of June and wow what a difference. Hardly anything that we are growing this year is nearly as big or healthy-looking like last year's was. We are using seeds from a different company so since we are doing everything the same… Continue reading 07.05.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 June Update
I truly had forgotten how much time and effort is needed to grow vegetables. And just when some are starting to ripen, the temperatures soar to the 90s which makes being out there really difficult. The only fruit that has required anything has been our blueberries. Since those are necessary for my brain health plus… Continue reading 06.04.20 Chauvin Produce Company 2020 – May Update
Gardening is difficult when the weather is as hot has it has been. The high today was in the high 70s so right after church today I spent several hours crawling around and working in our main vegetable garden. Pulling weeds has been difficult because the garden was so full. All weeds and dead leaves… Continue reading 08.26.19 Chauvin Produce Company – In Transition to the Fall Garden
Things, they are a changing in the garden! This week I harvested our entire crop of potatoes. See the picture below. It was not the large basket full of potatoes I hoped for. But it will provide us with maybe 4 meals of potatoes so that's good. Once the plants above the ground died off… Continue reading 07.14.19 Chauvin Produce Company – Things they are a changing
The vegetable plants are as big as they need to get and they re all producing. We are now harvesting daily! Instead of showing the garden itself, I'll share some photos of the harvest and a couple of the garden! We've been dealing with hungry little insects and bugs and spraying and spraying the plants… Continue reading 06.27.19 Chauvin Produce Update – It is Harvest Time!
This produce update we're starting with the bad news and then will go on to all of the good news. Well, it was just not time for us to grow broccoli and cauliflower. The plants got big, but bugs got the leaves. We treated them all three different times using Sevin Dust, then Insecticidal Soap… Continue reading 06.05.19 Chauvin Produce Company Update
Our tallest stalk of corn is expecting its first baby corn!!! It's not time for a full vegetable garden update but this new development is too wonderful to wait! This is the stalk that was started from seed inside and was the only one that lived long enough to be planted outside! The rest of… Continue reading 05.07.19 Chauvin family is expecting a new baby!
