Happy Family Day

Today is family day here in Saskatchewan. There is no real importance to today’s date the government just decided to give us an extra Stat Holiday a few years back and that is what they chose to call it.  We don’t have any big plans today. Mr. Pickles is working at the farm until 2 or 3 and then lunch and maybe a walk later on. So basically just like every other

Since my shoulder was acting up again this week giving me the most amazing migraines I don’t really have much to share on the gardening front or Sewing front. Which doesn’t leave me much to talk about...Well I could go on and on about nothing I am quite good at that...but I like to have a post with pictures and it’s hard to take a picture of

Today I think I am going to try and cut a bit of fabric for the Sew Happy Geek QAL blocks that I am horribly behind on and get my mini quilt all quilted up. I also want to get my garden plan started.

I have started my garden plan a little bit. As you may recall I know what I am going to plant this year I just haven`t finalized what goes where. The Strawberries and Raspberries are going to stay where they are and this year I am thinking about putting two raised herb gardens at the end of the garden.

This is what I am thinking of, however I don`t know if it is going to give the herbs enough room. I plan of doing one at each end of the width of the garden and planting chamomile in-between them.

Herb garden for 2012?

Okay Off to draw up my plans (I tried on here but it doesn`t copy to blogger very well)


  1. Enjoy your day. We do not get a Family Day here in NS. However, since I mostly deal with people in other parts of has been very quiet for me.

  2. I hope your feeling better soon.

  3. This garden looks amazing and a super great use of space. Happy planning...

  4. I've never heard of Family Day, sounds like a good idea to me!

    I love the design of your herb planters and might just have to do something similar in my front garden.

  5. I really think that will be pretty as well as functional! I do so wish Honeyman was handy enough to make one of those! (but sadly we would have a better chance if I was the one wielding the hammer! LOL)!

  6. I also live in a zone 2 gardening zone. It's starting to feel like time to begin browsing the seed catalogues. :)
