Sprouts and Blooms!

I’m starting to have a couple early sprouts. My broccoli and brussel sprouts have poked through the dirt and I have tomatillos and cherry tomatoes starting. And then I have a couple daffodils starting to blood as well. All of these are adding some brightness and color to these days which all need a little.

Planting Flowers….

So no lie here, I love spring. I love the grass turning green and flowers starting to poke through the ground and bloom. Tulips, Daffodils and Hyacinths just make me smile. I planted a few tulips and hyacinths last year right off our front porch and I noticed a couple of the hyacinths poking through…

Seeds Are Planted!

Yes! March 17th came and I planted! My great-grandma always said that we should start the seeds indoors on March 17th and so instead of wearing green I just got out my green thumb. Actually I’ll be honest. Most years I have all my seeds planned out and how many of what and all that…

Planting 101 Week 3

  So it’s Monday again which means another gardening post. How is everyone doing? Seeds planted? Anything coming up? I’ve got a lot coming up, they’ve gotten too tall to keep the clear cover over them and I think today they may have gotten either a little cold from the wind (from my open window)…

Week 1 sprouts

So I’ve unofficially made Monday’s my planting/gardening day to post. Don’t hold me to that because nothing has been real official on this blog. But since its the third week in a row then we’ll go with it for now. How is everyone doing? Don’t worry if you are late getting things planted, in the…
