Year of Jewelry Weeks 15 & 16 and a greenhouse pic... or two☺

Still keeping up and  still spending a lot of time in the greenhouse☺


Peppers, cabbage, cauliflower and some squash

on the other side here☺
I have the blue totes (where the tomatoes live) set up with a drip system on

It took a little work to set up the soaker hoses but very worth it.
WAY better than spending 1 1/2 everyday watering!

The focal bead is, of course, made by my absolute fav glass artist Juli Cannon of Juls Beads. Check out her store and if you want to have a front row s…
