The garden that wasn't...

So I tried my hand at starting seeds for a veggie garden this year. I started some seeds in a mini greenhouse on my table in March. The little sprouts took off like crazy, and I was super excited to get some delicious home grown vegetables out in the yard. I was working on plans for a square foot garden even! My zucchini sprouts started pushing the lid off the greenhouse within a few weeks, so I repotted them, and put the lid back on the rest, praying it would be about time to get them outside pretty quick.
Sadly we had some crazy late winter weather and my poor little sprouts died off before I could get them outside.
With a few seeds left in my packets I bought new peat starter pods and replanted a few things....only to have them blown around the yard by a darn wind storm when I was out and about one evening.
I have now come to the conclusion that I am not a gardener...I can grow flowers, but vegetables are NOT my thing.

A few changes!

I have to say, of all the things in my life that have an impact in my life, the Internet has been a major factor for about the last 12 years of my life. The net gave me AOL and my husband (yes I met my husband inadvertently in a chat room when I was 19!), as much knowledge as I can plug into a search engine, more ideas than I know what to do with for crafty projects, and of course a whole slew of people who I only know online! I am a member of CafeMom, and LOVE one particular group of ladies I have come across in awhile. One of these said wonderful ladies designed my new layout, and I want to give her major kudos. If you need a fancy new blog layout, or just another fun blog to read, check her out at Paging Jessica!

Thanks again Jess <3
