All about the greenhouse ...... growing like a weed☺

Image
I showed a couple pics of the greenhouse in my last post but this post is all about the plants☺ (And there are lots of pics:~p)  I started planting seeds on Jan 10th The broccoli and cauliflower were the first to start coming up.



Time to start thinning and re-potting
Coming along fine☺
The perennial flowers are starting to get in it gear Some broccoli, cauliflower, a couple of flowers They all seem to be pretty happy in their hi tech pots (9 oz dixie cups)☺
Mostly peppers and a few tomatoes

We'll see☺
Here's a little peek at some of the goodies from the greenhouse....
I started planting seed a little over a month ago. I have several varieties of tomatoes, hot peppers and perennial flowers, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and squash. So far everybody seems to be pretty happy☺ 

Year of Jewelry continues☺

Well, we are up to Week 6 and I am blogging as regularly as usual. Ha!

This one is a matchy-matchy to Week 2. I made it so I wouldn't have so many beads to sort and put away;~) (Still working on that)
I really hope to carve out the time I need to actually list a bunch  of items in the store. I've got tons of stuff that I need to get to listing:~)
