Home of Stella's Gardens

We are now living full time in Northeast Iowa, and working on the new gardens. It will keep us busy for quite a while...

As an avid gardener since I was about 7 years old, that gives me over 45 years of experience gardening in this part of the world. And every year teaches me a bit more.

Also, working on a new website at stellasgardens - dot - com. Feel free to check it out and comment!

So there they are, the leeks and onions and shallots oh my! Hiding behind the netting that should keep the big bully deer from giving them a premature haircut. The ones previously pictured in their flats, happily situated in their summer home. Of course this week they are predicting colder temps, much more seasonable, but this is in a fairly moderate microclimate (hill facing south) so we will hope for the best. The geraniums in the big pot will probably get covered this evening. All the flats will be back in onto the sunporch. Looking forward to waxing more philosophical-like some day, but for now it's a bit too busy a life...
