How are you?
Today I'd like to share with you some of what I've been up to this week.
As the days lengthen I enjoy planting some seeds
and get a head start on the gardening season.
This year we are trying something new...and that is
to grow some radishes, spinach, and lettuce indoors.
Above is a picture my daughter took of our little radish plants.
Below is a little shoot of a marigold flower.
Yes, we need flowers to to balance out the veggies!
Do you do that?
I love to have marigolds to plant with my tomatoes
because they like growing together.
With the added sunshine and light
our geraniums are starting to flower!
First out pink and then soon the red ones will be out.
By my little chair space next to the window...
I am working on another pair of socks.
This time I'm using a variegated yarn that is different
from the others I have used. It creates an interesting pattern.
I found this great pot at the free store awhile back and like to use it
for putting veggies and dip in.
It's not too heavy and with the double handles is easy to carry.
I love that it's metal and won't break if dropped.
I know we like to think that we won't drop things...but
experience has taught me that isn't the case. :)
I also just found this cute little metal tray at the free store to.
Great for sliced cheese and other little items.
As spring approaches I also am feeling the urge to purge and clean.
I've started to re-home items I don't need or want anymore.
It's good to get into the corners and really look and consider things.
Our family will be looking at moving again in a few months and so this is also
helping to lighten the load we'll have to carry.
Sometimes when I drop things off at the free store I see others pick up the items
and delight in what they find. I know it was meant to pass it on.
Here are a couple more pictures of our little seedlings that my daughter has taken.
Sunflowers (three kinds of dwarf ones)
Our chamomile has really been coming nicely!
I love to grow chamomile for tea!
In all of the joy of watching things grow I wonder at the
intricate way that God has created all life.
Nothing by chance...all perfectly created in all the lovely details.
May we glorify God for his greatness and
for all that he has created!
Do you start plants indoors? Have you started yet?
What do you like to grow indoors?
Thanks for dropping by!
Love and Prayers,
