Garden Update and Announcement!

Many of us are feeling the price crunch when it comes to feeding our children healthy foods... when cucumbers and peppers are over $1 each, we need to think of something else to do. So many of us are trying to turn black thumbs slightly green by learning to garden.

Unfortunately, many of us don't know what we are doing. So I thought of making an online Garden Club. I will put a Mr. Linky (I am going to name him The Garden Guru if it will let me...) on my site on Friday Morning. You post something which tells about your garden progress, or asking a question. Then everyone can go visit each other, offering encouragement and advice. Don't you think it will sound like a great idea? I hope people participate!

Thanks to the great Computer Expert ~ The Cap'n ~ we have a button for our new Garden Club! Take it over to your own site if you want to participate!

And just for the record... I planted lots of seeds last Thursday. Over 50 % of the tomato seeds in the little pods (you know the presto ones that you add water to and they expand?) have sprouted, and NONE of the ones in the Jiffy Seed Starting Mix have sprouted yet. Interesting, huh? I wonder what those pods have the the Mix doesn't?

Start thinking and preparing for your post on Friday! (I do want to let people know that I will be in the hospital with Mercy on Friday, so it might be Saturday if I cannot get wireless on my laptop... )


  1. Just added your button...can't wait to start our garden...remind me that I said that in July (grin)


  2. Oh, I can't wait for garden season! We still have some snow. Great idea for the club.
