One of the projects I started back in May was to make a better binder to hold all of our gardening and landscape info. I have been collecting notes and articles for years, but they have been tucked away with other misc. notes in a binder. I went ahead and pulled out leftover scrapbook making materials and prettied-up a binder I had on hand. Total cost of Gardening binder: $0.00ish!
Happy Spring, Everyone! Yesterday was the first day of spring and things are really starting to thaw out around here. Over the weekend I started planting some vegetable plants for my garden, including a new endeavor: BROCCOLI. Last year I planted potatoes for the first time, and they were pretty easy. I planted just two 12-inch pots and they will be my experiment for this year.
I have been working on a few things for the shop, but life keeps getting in the way. I hope to have a few items in my shop soon.
I hope you are thawing out and enjoying this spring!
Hello, All! We are slowly thawing out here in Wisconsin. It will be a number of weeks until we can get outside and plant our gardens, but this is the time for starting seeds. That is just what I did on Monday. I dug out my soil-less soil and seed starting flats and planted 12 each of bell peppers, tomatoes and cherry tomatoes while the little one was taking her nap. When she woke up, I still had not finished my project, so she got all excited and started pointing and yelling at the weird “stuff” on the kitchen floor. I really wanted to be done before she woke up, but starting seeds is one of those jobs that I always thinks takes less time than it really does. I had considered letting my Helper help with this project, but I opted to wait another year.
I am hosting Easter brunch for my family this year. I am dead set on making a peep-themed Easter cake. I am perfectly fine with making a cake, frosting it and slapping on gobs of Peeps. But I thought maybe I would head over to Pinterest and see what other ideas are out there. Once again, Pinterest did not disappoint. Once again, I was overwhelmed with tons of colorful, beautiful (and some not so beautiful) photos of inspiration. I started a “Peep Cake” board and hope I will add my own cake soon. So, heads up for an out-of-this-world Easter Peep cake picture sometime after April 5!
Good luck with all of your own Easter/Garden/Spring plans! 😀
