Garden update

My last garden post (two posts away) I posted a picture of my square foot garden. It has grown lots since then(only 16 days ago). Saturday while we had some clear weather I went out and picked some lettuce and spinach. It sure made a yummy salad & is still going strong. I am amazed how fresh it still is.

Have a super week :)

Painty Covers

I checked out some of the video's from Roben-Marie. I used some of my old file folders and cut them down to 12" x 8.5". I like all the inky goodness!!!

I am thinking of making them into journals.

My Garden

I thought I would post some pic's of my 2 square foot gardens. They are slowly growing. I wish I would have planted the pea's, spinach, and lettuce a little earlier in the season, but they are doing fine :) The front row we are planting the radishes. We plant a square foot every two weeks.

Next is the sfg with my garlic in it. I planted the garlic last October and it is usually ready around the forth of July. Behind the garlic I am planting 4 squares of jalapeno peppers. The row behind that are my broccoli, love homegrown broccoli!!!  On the back row will be some tomatoes. We are going to put up a frame with some fencing to grow the tomatoes vertically on. So excited!!!

The candy tuft is in full bloom. Nice!!!

Have a super week,

Canvas Bag

Awhile ago a  friend gave me this canvas bag with a saying on it. It sat around, but a week ago I thought I sure could use that canvas bag to tote things around. I tore muscle in my leg & have been on crutches for 5 weeks now. I am always wanting to have a tote to carry my water, some art journal supplies, stuff like that. Looking at my  tote, it for sure  needed to be jazzed up some. So I got out my spray inks, punchinella, stencials, acrylic paints & got to it. I am lovin' all the bright color & it makes me happy. So here it is!!!!!!

So there it is, my colorful tote!!!!!
I just love it :)
