Produce and Moving!


Amy's organic eggs are so pretty!  And tasty too!  Lovely dark yellow yolks.



Beautiful pot of  zinnias grown from seed.



At least it seems that hot!  I wilt!



Not the best color combinations but still pretty!



Wish I could take starters of these with me!



The monarda by the deck is so pretty.  I thought I would see more hummingbirds on it.



A days picking from the garden!  Yum!



The empty shelves look lonely!



Some boxes already taken to storage and more to go.  Movers come a week from today!!  Will we be ready!!!!!!

Lovely flowers that I'm sure you will miss. Nice produce from your garden too. None of my tomatoes are even slightly orange yet.
Looks like you have moving well under control.

Sue said...

Moving is so hard-but it looks like your moving right along---ha, I guess pun intended!
I bet it will be hard to leave those beautiful flowers. Best of luck to you

Hi Granny Marigold, Thanks! Yes, I will miss my flowers and garden but hopefully I will make an interesting courtyard next year! Ready or not moving day comes as scheduled! Nancy

Hi Sue, Yes, moving is a lot of work. Bittersweet memories but hoping to make an interesting courtyard next summer. Wish I could take more starters with me but have to live in a small apartment while our house is being built. Nancy

I hope the move goes smoothly.

Packing up and moving is such a huge job. I am sure you have been sifting through a lot of memories trying to figure out what to take with you. May the Lord keep your spirits up as you go through the emotional upheaval of it all. Your garden is beautiful and I have no doubt next year you will create something lovely in your new courtyard.

Hi Tired Teacher, I hope the move goes smoothly too. Thank you. Nancy

Hi Gloriade, I have to agree that it is a huge job packing and moving! Thank you for the encouraging comment! Nancy

Your yard is so pretty and I am sure you will continue to have a nice garden even in a smaller place. Good luck with your move. I just know you are excited about a new house.
Hugs,
Audrey Z.

I don't envy you the task of packing up and moving - I did it 4 times in 5 years and swore never again!!! Good luck to you - I'm sure you will miss your lovely home and garden!

Alex said...

Hello Nancy, just wishing you a smooth move and I hope you get a cool, dry day.
Is Miss Coco (Chanel) going in the kennels?
Dont forget to have the kettle, coffee/tea and milk handy will you?
Look forward to your 'after' posts!
May you be blessed.

Good luck with the move. You have so much done already. It is never an easy job.
Can't you take some starts of flowers with you? I would sure try if any way possible.
Best of luck and don't over work yourself.

Hi Audrey, Thanks. I am excited about a new house but not excited about the apartment we are staying in while it is being built! It will all work out though. Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Mountain Mama, I think since you have moved so often you need to give me some advice! I will miss some of the yummy things growing in my yard here for sure! Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Alex, I am hoping it doesn't rain on moving day! No, Coco will not be going to the kennels. She has never been to one. She will be staying with a friend who watches her sometimes for the day. I wouldn't want her to get hurt. Nancy

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Cheryl, Thanks! I do have some things potted up but the little patio at the apartment will probably be full with what I have. Plus it has been so hot and my Lyme has been bad again and with the hot weather this is about it I think. Would love to take more though! Nancy

Margaret said...

The photo of your garden in the heading of your blog makes me sad - but as you say, it's a fresh start & the chance to start something new. Maybe your apartment has a sunny window for a few potted herbs??

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Hi Margaret, Thank you. I don't want to make you sad. We have had 13 wonderful years living her to enjoy our yard. Now it is too much for us but when we get the house with the courtyard I will still be growing things. In the meantime all my potted plants are out on the small apartment patio! Nancy
