Looking for my green thumb

My mom has a green thumb. I remember her garden in our first house where the watermelons were half the size of my body (granted, I was four at the time). And I remember when we lived at the second house and she grew sunflowers that I couldn't reach the tops of. Even today, she grows vegetables in her home garden and has her grandchildren help tend them whenever they visit her.…

5 Landscaping Ideas for Small Gardens

Don't you just love all the adjectives estate agents and designers use to describe small gardens? Petite. Minikin. Bantam. And then we upgrade from foreign words to compound adjectives like space-savvy or better – clichés like less is more. But let's face it – less is less and for whatever reason you have a small garden space, you just have to embrace it. As seasoned London landscaping experts say, learn to love it. Because…

4 Great Designs Ideas to Turn your Balcony in the Garden of Eden

Everybody loves a good balcony garden. Since not all of us have a land lot to shape, and some of us have to settle for balconies and patios, balcony garden design is becoming more mainstream with each year. There are whole websites dedicated to the art of creating a lush green paradise out of your 1ft by 1ft area. Yet most people are reluctant to experiment with their open space areas and usually go…

Green-ish Thumb

I can't believe May is almost over already. It has been feeling a lot more like March or April around here in Central Kansas. We have gotten so much rain these last few weeks and the temps have been in the 50's more than the 80's. I definitely don't want to complain about rain, but our garden could use a couple of consecutive sunny days.

We planted our garden a little over a month ago, and some things are really starting to take off!...(and some of it, not so much). This is our first…

Ways to Celebrate Earth Day with Your Family

Back in 1952, Ohio’s Cuyahoga River caught fire and caused $1.5 million in damage to Cleveland. The city’s industrial revolution had taken its toll with the oil and debris clogging the river and igniting on a regular basis. When the river went up in flames yet again in 1968, the situation gained national attention. The Cuyahoga became a poster child for early environmentalists.…

Trying the Cement Block Raised Garden Bed (As Seen on Pinterest)

I finally made my way over to Lowes today so I could buy the things necessary to try the Cement Block Raised Garden Bed idea I saw on Pinterest.

I wanted two beds, so I intended to buy 20 cement blocks, but I underestimated how heavy they were and how much space it would take up in the car. After grocery shopping, and making a quick trip to ToysRUs to pick up a birthday gift, space was limited. So, I bought:

6 bags of Top Soil

3 bags of Potting…

Remodeling my garden after letting it go - giveaway!

I have something to confess. My months of gardening went to waste a long while ago, because I saw a snake and lizards that made me feel as if my backyard was their own, not mine, lol. Usually I'm not afraid of garden snakes, but when I'm in the backyard alone a garden snake starts to look like an anaconda. Eek! With all the different types of garden / garter snakes there are, I can't tell when a poisonous snake is nearby. So to…

What the heck is all that brown stuff?

Oh no...

Checking out my garden this afternoon, I did my usually walk around on the patio smiling at the veggies plants and flowers that are growing well and speaking to them about the weather, their sexy leaves, and nice legs (stems) because I heard you're supposed to talk to plants. Don't judge me! Just after I open the screen door to speak to…

Non-Candy Easter Baskets

Confession: I am completely over all the Easter candy. You would think the Easter bunny lived in my house based on the amount of chocolate bunnies, chicks and carrots currently residing here. Enough already. I love sugar as much as the next girl, but for the most part, I really try and limit giving sugar to my kids. My children have already dug into the stockpile of chocolate disguised as an Easter basket that was dropped off a few days ago by their loving Grandparents. This year the Easter…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
