grlandherdog Seed delivery 3 of 4: Chocolate Streamer Sweet Pea, Late Spencer Mix Sweet Pea, Black Knight Sweet Pea and Love in a Mist from @bakercreekseeds. I have dreams of trellises laden with sweet peas all spring... #gardenclub #flowers #cutflowergarden #seeds #sweetpeas #loveinamist #bakerscreekheirloomseeds 4d
  •   yukiepring Love love love sweet peas!!! Nice dark coloured ones you've got! 4d
  •   grlandherdog @yukiepring it's been a long time since I've grown them. When do you plant yours? I start some seeds indoors but usually opt for direct seed options as I don't have enough room/light for veggie seeds and flower seeds indoors. 4d
  •   yukiepring Same here. I have indoor seed system but rarely use it...For sweet peas I only do direct seeds. Whenever the soil is workable, I did in April last year but not sure what I'm doing is really the right time...some people say you can start them really early?? 4d

grlandherdog Seed delivery 2 of 4: Swooning over Floret Flower's Basil Aramato, Sherbert Chantilly Sweetpeas, Orach and...the most beautiful calendar ever to grace my walls. It was tempting to order everything from @floretflower, but the U.S./CDN $ exchange rate kept me in check. I'm looking forward to growing more flowers this year, hopefully the weather cooperates. #gardenclub #flowers #cutflowergarden #seeds #floretflower 5d
  •   yukiepring Yes, that was tempting!! Do you start seeds indoors? 5d

grlandherdog It's the most wonderful time of the year! I got home to 3 out of 4 seed orders in the mailbox! These are extra special tomato seeds from @yougrowgirl's collection: Ditmarsher, Hahms Gelbe Topftomate - Dwarf rare yellow, Brown Berry Cherry and Goldilox rare orange organic tomatoes! I'm excited to grow these unusual varieties - all suitable for pots, along side Amish paste and hopefully Japanese black trifele tomatoes this year. #gardenclub #tomatoseeds 6d
  •   yougrowgirl Japanese Black Trifele is one of my very favourites. 6d

grlandherdog Other days all I can bring myself to do is boil a pot of water. Same pot of water used to steam some tofu, boil somen noodles and blanch some kale. Top it all with sesame seeds, nori, crispy onions, ginger green onion sauce and sesame oil. Sit. Eat. Call it a day. #tootiredtocook #onepotmeals #weeknightcooking 7d

grlandherdog 2016 goals: Try recipes on weeknights for variety. This one thanks to @seasonsandsuppers Broiled Lemon Chicken. Some modifications - seasoned with peri peri for some spice before broiling, using breast and thigh pieces and adding potatoes and broccoli to the pan for a great, quick, one dish oven meal. I've always liked broiling chicken but cooking with this much lemon was new - and delicious, esp with the added kick from the peri peri. Eating/supporting local with @fenwoodfarm chicken; Ontario garlic, potatoes, broccoli and sourdough bread to mop up that sauce from @mustardseedcoop. #cookonceeatmany #foodblog #winnerwinnerchickendinner #seasonsandsuppers #gastropost 1w
  •   shinycrystal Yum!! 1w
  •   heatherwinger Wow that looks amazing! 1w
  •   teridodds1 That looks so good! What is peri peri? 1w
  •   grlandherdog @teridodds1 Peri peri is a chili. Peri peri sauce is a mix of chilies, citrus and other spices. You can buy it in the BBQ sauce section of the grocery store (not whole 30 I know). Any other dry rub that's compatible with lemon would work just as well. 1w
  •   petmeifyoucan OMG Shakes must be beside himself with those smells😬 1w
  •   shar_bozz This looks and sounds delicious! 1w

grlandherdog First pair of Ginger jeans waist, size 14, compared with my least stretchy high rise jeans. Thinking I might make a size 10 this time based on finished measurements and RTW pair of Levi's. #gingerjeans #closetcasefiles #conemillsdenim #sewing. Also, I've lost a whole bag of assorted top stitching thread 1w
  •   gilliancrafts Oh no! All that lovely denim and effort gone to waste! 1w
  •   devonholzwarth I'm super impressed that you're making pants 😀🤗🏼🏼 I also have to know what yoga jeans are because that sounds awful cozy. Hope you find your thread! 1w
  •   grlandherdog @gilliancrafts yeah I was kind of peeved, which is why they've been sitting unfinished since class ended in November. When I got the pattern and cut everything before class I didn't have the pattern envelope or booklet - as they weren't ready yet. I only had the tissue pattern. That said I'm gonna hem them as use them as my "I'm bloated like a whale today" pants, even though the fit around the legs is also a bit off. I'm hoping the size 10 works better or I'll be sooooo pissed. 1w
  •   devonholzwarth Thanks for the yoga jean enlightenment I'll see if I can find some. 1w
  •   gksagenda Wow. Are you going to try to save these, or just move on? 1w
  •   grlandherdog @gksagenda see comment above (long one). Definitely moving on. It's all top stitched and everything, can't be bothered to undo it all. 1w
  •   grlandherdog @devonholzwarth good luck with the jeans! Definitely go down a size or two in most styles (trust me) because they stretch a lot. Worst case scenario,'I'll send you a pair from Canada :) I found my thread, in the veeeery back of the thread drawer. 1w
  •   devonholzwarth Yay for finding it! Glad you don't have to think about it anymore. I'll be in the states this summer so I'll look for some then. 1w

grlandherdog I don't mind that it's still winter, but it's hard to imagine that the garden looked like this 32 weeks ago. Time to start planning this year's annual and veggie garden and our spring project - adding a pondless waterfall. 1w
  •   grlandherdog @crownflora yes let's! 1w
  •   dolalee No we took it out this past summer. With the large maple tree in the back it was to hard to maintain. It is not just fall leaves to clean ip bit also the maples tiny flowers and the keys... Was a lot of work to keep the water clean with all that debris. Didn't have the heart to garbage the pond form though, so it is still sitting at the side of the house. 1w
  •   dolalee I can send a picture of it...it is deep and not to big, sounds perfect for what you are planning. It is yours if ya want it... 1w
  •   grlandherdog @dolalee oh! Yes that would make sense, it would be hard to keep clean. We have all those cedar trees so that's why we think (hope) that pondless is better. Sure, if it's not too much trouble to photograph and send dimensions, we can see if it works. Then we might not have to dig a hole! 1w
  •   stitchparade When you get bored of planning your garden feel free to come over and plant mine 1w
  •   grlandherdog @stitchparade I think that might be fun, I can only imagine what could be done with the space you have! I'm definitely coming out to the county this year. But I did notice you went from planning to planting... Lol. 1w
  •   stitchparade Oh, I definitely meant "planning". Our decorative gardens are non existent and while I talk about starting them, I am so overwhelmed by what I don't know that I just leave them be. 1w
  •   grlandherdog #@stitchparade let's do it!! And plant some! I love planning, and planting!! 1w

grlandherdog Meet Octea. When he's full of air, he spits tea leaves and bubbles out from his lair at the bottom of my cup. At the end of the day, I pop off his perforated head to clean him out. It's the little things that amuse me, people. #teadrinker 2w
  •   yukiepring Cool! 2w
  •   oneoftheothergirls Okay this is really weird. It looks more like a bathtub toy but as they say "whatever floats your boat"!! I wonder who even thought this up???? 🤔 2w
  •   grlandherdog @oneoftheothergirls lol maybe I like bathtub toys in my tea. I actually never thought of it that way! I love unusual tea balls - I'm after one that looks like a robot lounging in your cup. 2w

grlandherdog This is 10yr old Mason. Isn't he gorgeous? One of the highlights of my month so far was working with @petmeifyoucan to photograph some of their wonderful clients for a new website. I've done some pet portraits in the past and would love to do more. More photos from the shoot to be revealed soon! #dogsofburlington #dogsofoakville #petmeifyoucan #dogwalker #petportraits #burlon #burlont #burlingtonphotographer #collie #sheltie #seniordog 2w
  •   julienash85 Louie and Lilly could use some professional shots! 2w
  •   grlandherdog @julienash85 I would LOVE to do that!! And - it turns out I will likely be in Ottawa for work later this year, if you're not in Ancaster before then! 2w
  •   petmeifyoucan You took SUCH beautiful shots of our pack, really capturing everyone's individual personalities🏼🐕 2w
  •   2yens A woman of many talents! 2w
  •   stitchparade You are good! 2w
  •   grlandherdog @2yens - that's very sweet, coming from you of many talents! @stitchparade thank you @petmeifyoucan we gotta do it again in the spring! 2w
  •   julienash85 @grlandherdog that's great! We will likely be in Ancaster eventually but our time is not our own when we are home. But if you are here for work we can definitely figure out a time! 2w
  •   grlandherdog @julienash85 I will pencil it in - sadly I think it's not til November, but that just means I'll have practiced a lot more by the time we do it! 2w
