Pardon Me...

Very sorry I have been absent! I am in the process of making diapers for Mini Me and will be posting a tutorial from start to finish very soon. Wish me luck!

My Pot Garden

Heeheehee... I couldn't resist that title because it sounds like I'm doing something naughty! Quite the opposite, sorry to disappoint your craving for scandel!

As you know I had a baby in March. Normally I have big ambitions of a garden but this year it just wasn't in the cards. Now I am kicking myself for not preparing and doing one. So I have resorted to pots (and tubs and totes). I would take pictures for you but at the present they are just filled with dirt. Not very exciting. But I am growing some culinary herbs, pumpkins, melons, spinach, lettuce, and swiss chard from seed and will purchase some tomato and pepper plants. This fall we will select a site for a permenant garden and prep it for spring. Maybe even plant some garlic and make an asparagus bed! A greenhouse perhaps? Maybe if I BEG my hubby! Next year I intend to go all out and learn to pressure can to preserve whatever we can. If I don't have to buy it in a store I won't, that is my goal with most of our food. Baby steps, first pot(s).
