I don't really have anything fascinating or fun going on this week so I thought I would give you an update on my mini farm.....aka my garden. Look at my lettuce! I'm loving that it it starting to turn fun colors and shapes! On the left you see my two pepper plants- one yellow and one rainbow variety. And three t'mater plants- on big plant in the center and two smaller on the right. And that blank space is where my carrots are growing.




Remember when I told you that I planted the root bottoms of the green onions last year? And the squirrels dug most of them up so only two little onions survived? Well this weekend as I was walking up the back steps, I looked over to see several green sprouts in the gutter. And realized that the squirrels must have tossed the onions in the gutter. But there was so much dirt/leaves in there that they were growing!! I reached in to find several baby onions, walked back down the stairs and properly planted them. Even if you just have some pots on your back deck, you should try this. Save the root ends of the green onions and bury them. It's like two for the price of one green onions. And it's fun to see something great grown from something you would usually throw away.




My first tomato of the season! Grow baby, grow!

These are my green beans. This time last week the same photo would look like dirt. The beans are growing like...well...growing like beans. I love that the leaves look like sweethearts. So cute.
And there you have it. I'm telling you, I've got nada for y'all today. I'm working on a few projects.... maybe I'll have some pictures of that stuff in the next day or two. Until then, I'll be reading your cute blogs. And drooling over the fabulous finds picked up at ridiculous prices last week at the Lilly sale!

You must not have any rabbits or deer near you! I just think about planting a garden & the forest critters foil me from the get go. No kidding, one year we were planting the seeds & little starter plants & we could see a deer in the background just waiting to eat the seedlings. Which he did later that night - or some critter did. Bummed me out.
