And the Season Begins


This quick and not so clear snapshot--caught under the grow lights, shows the emerging cayenne peppers strecthing their new leaves out and hopefully ready to grow fully and strong. 

Here's to the new growing season!

And as always, keep growing!

What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.

A garden is half-made when it is planned. The best gardener is the one who does the most gardening by the winter fire.

Spring's Around the Corner: Dollar Tree Finds


Found some great finds at my local Dollar Tree. This wasn't originally a trip for gardening supplies, but I
couldn't resist the Welcome Spring section and the great prices.

Here's a list of a few things I picked up:
Three planters, a pkg of 10 plant labels, two spools of twist ties with cutter, a pkg of 36 clothespins, 8 piece permanent markers set, 3 small seed starting mix bags,and 8 seed packets.

Not including tax, got everything for $15.

Giddy about everything I purchased, but my real excitement is for the seed flower packets!

In a previous post, I shared how I wanted to grow a small cut flower garden to provide fresh flowers in my home. I bought seeds of some past greats in my former garden, like, marigolds and cosmos, however, I found some Shasta Daisies and Zinnia seeds that'll hopefully grow into a gorgeous abundant flower garden and provide nice bouquets throughout my home, all summer long.

Happy New Year!

Happy to see a new year and ready for so many new experiences. Last year began my journey into creating my best decade ever, and as I enter into my second year of building my best decade, there's one simple gardening thing I want to do for myself this year: keep fresh flowers in the house. So, it looks like I'll be digging in and creating a nice sizeable cut flower garden.

Here's to the New Year and New Adventures!

Do you have any new plans or adventures for the Year?
