Happy February! More seeds

2-1-2016My husband got into the seed buying spirit and decided to try to grow some different things we’ve never grown before.
Burpee sent me a free pack of flower seeds with my squash seeds. Pretty neat!
Hopefully our garden will be full of tasty veggies & colorful Flowers.

Wishing you all a pleasant February
Filled with Sunshine and smiles!


Snow & squash eggs

IMG_6761There’s nothing like looking out and seeing my garden plot covered in a few inches of snow to get me in the seed buying mood. lol Seriously, it’s the truth.
Since we didn’t need to be out in the snow traveling around, I went shopping online for some squash seeds. I decided to buy some different ones that I’ve never tried to grow before; a Golden Egg hybrid and a Green Egg Hybrid. They’re supposed to be up to 5 inches when grown. It’ll be fun to see how they do and what they taste like.
I do like the fact that they are a relatively early producer. It gives me hope that I can harvest a few crops before the evil demon squash vine borer kills the plants.
Have you started making plans for a flower garden and/or vegetable garden?
I hope you all are keeping warm and staying safe during these snowy wintery days.



2015 in review – warning image heavy so post may be slow to load

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
However, the report is incomplete.
I follow Barb and have for years. I can’t figure out why it didn’t show it on the report.
I’m Sorry Barb, it must be a hiccup in WP engine.

I made screen shots of my report and seamed them together and made one huge image of it to correct the error and post it for all to see. You can click-on this image to see the fuller sized one.


Thank you WordPress being such a wonderful community to blog in.
Wishing everyone a wonderful blogging year in 2016.


I also have added this screen capture of my of my top popular post stats.  It gives me a super happy feeling to see my  Scrubbies & Fake Ice posts got so many views. Sweet!
