July 16, 2024 – Late Container Potatoes

Back on July 4th, we stopped in at Stein’s Garden and Home in West Bend after dinner. I expected the yard to be pretty cleaned out because it is now later in the summer gardening season. I was looking for a white geranium and hoped they had one or two left. There was a LOT left in the yard.

We looked around at some leftover vegetables and herbs, I found a ton of geraniums, and we looked over the nursery stock. I selected a white geranium and we headed inside to pay. On the way up to the register I spotted a few bags of seed potatoes on a shelf at 90% off! I was pretty excited about that because I had been kicking myself for not trying to plant some potatoes this year. The price of everything has gone up and I should have tried for a larger garden. It’s late in the season, but we purchased the seed potatoes for under $1.00.

My garden is planted and I didn’t have space for potatoes in the ground. The plan was to throw these sprouted potatoes into containers and see what I get. I had leftover potting soil and I saved some coffee grounds. I planted seed potatoes in containers a few years ago and they turned out ok. I planted just three containers out of this bag and so far, so good!

I hope you’re all having a delightful summer!

April 11, 2024 – Good Morning!!

Hello! Really, that is all I have to say. I am getting ready for “It’s a Spring Thing Craft Fair” this Saturday. My morning started out with not wanting to do anything. I didn’t like feeling like that. So, in a loud outburst at breakfast to my Husband, I declared I would make today my b****. I feel bad about the swear, but it was kind of necessary.

I have been doing things and getting stuff done. However, the more I do, the more things I am adding to my “To Do” list. I need to do one thing at a time, the thing that is in front of me. I struggle with putting the right things in front of me. So, I am taking a little break and wishing everyone reading this, Good Morning and have a nice day!! Make today YOUR …. um…. YOURS!!

Pretty! This pretty floral design was on a month from last year’s $5 calendar from Target. There isn’t a manufacturing company listed on the calendar, or I’d give due credit to whoever designed it.

April 4, 2024 – It’s a Spring Thing Craft Fair

I’ll have a booth in the upcoming, “It’s a Spring Thing Craft Fair” at St. Killian School in Hartford, WI, Saturday, April 13, 2024. I am happy this craft fair is back! This is the first time they are hosting this event since 2019, before COVID. This is also my first craft fair of 2024. I hope to see you there! 😀
