Joining in with the Blogtoberfestivities

Welcome Blogtoberfestians! Feel free to take a look around. I've decided to join in with Blogtoberfest again. I'm not sure how I will go, but I will do my best to blog everyday for the month of October.


One of my other goals this month is to get these seedlings into my garden beds - hopefully very soon. I had a go at starting from scratch with seeds, but the ones that were to be planted straight into the garden were dug up by something (I'm suspecting a largish black bird - maybe a crow or magpie?). I also tried growing some tomato seeds but they didn't germinate. I'm not sure if it is my fault or if there was something wrong with the seeds. I have done it before, although maybe I didn't water them enough?


As you can see, it is a bit wet here today. Don't worry, when I realised that someone left his tricycle out in the rain, I brought it in.


I fear the seedlings will drown :( Hopefully, these strawberry plants that I planted earlier won't.


I am also a bit excited about this blueberry plant. I love blueberries. I bet birds like them too....


I think I will put it over here. I might get rid of those weeds too.


With all this rain, it seems today might be a better day for sewing than gardening. If you're new around here, that is what I mostly do. If you have any gardening tips, I would love to hear them. If you are a regular, and wondering what I am talking about, you can find more by clicking on this button:

PS: I am also having a giveaway over here


  1. How exciting! Good luck with the seedlings. I've got lots of new babies to put in my garden too.

  2. I'm not a gardener, but I admire people like you who can grow things! Good luck with Blogtoberfest! I hope I can make it through the month!

  3. Happy Blogtoberfest!

    Have you grown blueberries before? I am on to my fourth plant - I don't seem to have much luck! I have heard that they thrive if you put pine-needles under them.


Thank you for visiting my blog. I would love to hear what you think.
