It is a special day over at WOYWW no 104 is here which means it has been going for 2 years! I wasn't there at the beginning as I was starting to pack everything up and spent oodles of hours doing research for our move over the pond! Yikes, that was almost 2 years ago too!
Not much crafting going on here this week either....I am spending most of my time getting the house organized and super cleaned before our Summer visitors arrive!
Summer has finally arrived (after some last minute snow at the weekend) so I thought it time to do some gardening. I thought I would show that instead of my desk where nothing has changed in the last week!
We spotted this large container at the weekend and Hubby had the idea to make it a large planting area, obviously he didn't want to have to make me another wooden one! Still, he lugged it about for me and filled it up with potting mixture and I could merrily add my little plants yesterday in the sunshine! Bliss!
I planted a jalopeno, red pepper, cucumber, watermelon and pumpkin and a little bit of basil. This year will be a test as growing anything here will be a challenge with our hot, arid summers!
The strawberry plants are a bit of a cheat, they already have some strawberries on!
and the hubster thought hanging tomatoes would be a good idea, tell you what though, these things are tough to fill up, I didn't have anywhere low enough to fill it so had to get my older boy to come and hold it while I planted! It holds a few weeny tomato plants, some basil and some parsley!
Next I have to find some potato plants and more herbs oh and definitely some lettuce seed as they grow quite quickly I find them fairly easy to grow!
I had better get back to the spring cleaning, probably won't be around much over the next few weeks what with kids finishing school for summer next week and visitors etc but will be dipping in now and then and I do have some things already made for the Whimsy June rubber release in a couple of weeks.
