Flowers and Friends

I'm obsessed with gardening. I think I want to move because of that fact alone! I NEED A YARD!!!!! And an unlimited budget :)

Filled a few baskets I had laying around, since I was too cheap to buy more containers. I drilled  holes in the bottom of some for drainage, then used some fabric to keep the soil from running out. I think I've used every last container laying around! 

My neighbor gave me this garden box, which i LOVE. I added that square topper thing. Use to be an old frame thing. I liked having it raised. 

Left to right: Ruby lettuce, green onions (back), carrots, spinach, swiss chard (back), then more carrots, romaine lettuce and onions. 

Plants make me so happy!!!!!!!

I've been using the spinach an kale daily for salads and smoothies. It came at the right time, because guess what I found in a bag of spinach from the store??? A MOTH! (insert barf sound here)

Below: cucumbers (top left), peppers, kale

The green container there is the one I used for a larger basket - drilled the holes, lined with fabric. I love it! I also love my decorative door from the Henrie farm, as it blocks the noise of the AC unit!

Below plants: Herbs, zucchini (blue pot), yellow squash (yellow pot), cherry tomatoes (with cages), basil (small red pot), and arugula (bottom right)

Apple tree from seed! Aren't they so cute!? These were a complete experiment from a SUPER yummy Opal apple I ate. I recently learned that it's highly unlikely I'll get the same apple tree as the parent tree. More likely to be some super sour variety. Give them about 10 years and we will see!!!

Addison Roberts will be here all week with us while her parents visit Israel! She has adapted so well and seems to be really loving this extended play-date!

Getting dirty pre-church...


For the front porch... HAPPINESS IN A BUCKET RIGHT THERE!!!

Started off with paint...

Turned into body art. The bath after was blue!
