Evening light in the clouds

Ok, so I took a little liberty with Lightroom with these photos. But as I was driving home I saw the light coming through the clouds and really wanted to capture it. I went for the dramatic, maybe one of these will be used for a project someday.

Garden Week 3

Some plants are just fast growers, I guess. The weather is still horrible and my plants are really getting big. I bought some disposable transfer pots to transfer the pods into. I’m hoping to keep these going for a little while longer until it warms up enough outside.

With my new found space in the tray I have bought a few more seeds and am going to add broccoli, cauliflower and dill to my garden.

Here’s the progress on the green beans and cucumbers.

Cross Stitch-An update

It’s been over a year since my last post of my cross-stitch. Honestly it hasn’t gotten much farther. Many days my husband tells me I have my goals set a little too high with all my projects. I have decided that I will spend at least a couple of evenings this week working on it. I have a couple of photo events this weekend and still have photos from last weekend to go through, so next week will be a photo week. This week will be TV and cross stitch. Sounds like a plan to me!

My Garden Part 2

It’s been a week since I planted the seeds. The cucumber is already too large to fit under the lid. From what I can tell almost everything except the peppers have at least started to sprout.

The one that I wasn’t even sure were seeds oregano sproutswas the oregano. This is what they look like now…I honestly wasn’t expecting anything to grow and now look at it. —>

 

 

And below are the updated photos of how the garden is sprouting up today.

The yellow tape marks the top of the tray so I know what’s growing where. I designed a map as I was planting so I would know what everything was once it started sprouting.

My Garden part 1

Since moving into our first house, my husband and I have been making sad attempts at a garden. We were lucky enough to find a house that came with a small strip up the side of the yard ready for a garden, it even has asparagus. Now we are going into our third summer at the house and if it ever stops snowing we might be able to get going on this whole garden thing again.

Here’s the run down, year one: I tried planting multiple things in the same row. Cucumber, beans, and squash all crammed together did not go so well for a successful garden.

Year two: I made a map of what I was planting. Gave the plants with big leaves lots of space. Ended up a drought year and pretty much everything died. But had lots of small tomatoes resulting in bruschetta overload.

Year three: You get to join me on the adventure this year! I have bought seeds. Not sure if I have all the things I want, but like I said, it’s not the largest space. We had my dad till in the fall. We even took up the netting stuff for the tomatoes so the dirt should be fresh this year. I hope we can get it tilled once more before planting.

Instead of trying to plant seeds outside and hope things will grow, I will be using a starter kit inside with little dirts that will grow when watered. I will be keeping you posted on their progress.garden_0413_02
