Living on the Edge

Here's where I'm keeping the first group of my starts/seedlings--my kitchen window. The window is only a temporary place until I can setup a grow box(hey, that's a future blog post). 

Natural sunlight isn't as abundant in the new house,and space is very limited, but I'm going to make it work and my plant babies will soak up every ray of sunshine possible. 

As you can see, many of the containers are covered with plastic wrap, or, is covered with a clear plastic lid. This is done to help speed up germination---look at that beautiful yellow pear tomato seedling(in the tall container), it has its third leaf! 


So far, everything is looking fairly well and seeing the first sprout really makes the gardening season feel real, and the countdown to spring begins!

Have you started your seedlings,yet, and, if so, what have you planted?

Take care and keep growing!

Let the Gardening Season Begin

I got a few bottles, a few seed packets, and the potting soil ready for the start of gardening season. Has anyone else started, and if not, when will you start?

Also, I'll like to give a quick shout- out to my little sister for all the plastic bottles she's donated to me.

Until next time,

Keep growing :)

Something Random

Hey everyone, just wanted to check in and say, hi. It's a rainy day here in Atlanta, and for me that usually means a documentary filled day, which it almost was, but my darling husband talked me into hanging out with him.

He has a job interview today and even though the movies, our couch and that box of Quacker's apple and cinnamon oatmeal is really calling me, I decide to go and hangout on a rainy day....with....my boo.

I hope he gets the job and our day is filled with lots of fun.

Best Wishes

Today is the first day of school for more Atlanta area students and my kids are including in this group of back to schoolers. Honestly, I think it's way to early to be going back, but it is what it is. Every year, I secretly wish that I can extend summer vacation a bit longer.

I want to continue the late night movies, even though, I hardly ever make it through them. I want to extend the countless lazy days at the pool, the impromptu cooking  demos I seem to give every year because someone wants to learn how to make a favorite dish on their own.  

Oh how I wish summer vacation can stay a bit longer....I really do! I just love having so much time with my children and as they get older every year, I'm reminded of all of the great memories we have created with each other.

Here's to a new school year and best wishes to all the back to schoolers and their families!
