Spring is Coming!

It is almost March and that means spring is coming soon! This weekend I started a few plants inside – two types of peppers (hot and bell), brussels sprouts, broccoli, some different herbs, and a few types of flowers. This is the first time I’ve attempted flowers from seed so we will see how it goes! We’re planning to expand our front garden quite a bit this spring so I’m hoping we can save a bit of money by starting flowers from seed instead of buying the plant since that gets pretty pricey for a large area.

I use these little greenhouses to start my seeds. They’re perfect for little seedlings – I transplant them to larger degradable pots when the roots start creeping out the bottom of the pellets.

Anxiously awaiting my little plants to start sprouting!

Questions for our Nominator

1. Sweet or Salty?

Definitely salty.  I’m not a big sweet fan.

2. If you were stranded on a desert island with one craft supply, what would it be?

I would have to say a nice, sharp pair of knitting needles.  Since this is a desert island inhabited by sheep (you did say that’s what kind of desert island it is, right?) I could knit myself warm clothing and such. And if worse comes to worse,  I suppose I could use them as a weapon.

3. Would you say you are technically savy or technic….not so much?

I’d say I lean towards more technically savvy, although not always! 

4. What was your New Year’s Resolution this year? Have you kept up with it?

My resolution was to be more patient.  I think I’ve been keeping up with it pretty well, although with a few slip ups every now and then.

5. What was the single best day of your life?

Last summer when my fiance asked me to marry him!

6. What was your best personal hairstyle? Share a picture!

Ugh.  I hate my hair so I’m going to pass on this one 🙂

7. What was your worst personal hairstyle? Share of picture of that too, we won’t laugh!

I don’t think I have a picture of this handy anywhere, but it was definitely when I would wear my hair in butterfly clips every. single. day. of 4th grade. Like 15 butterfly clips on my head.  Real cute, Sam.

8. If you could spend an entire day with a person of your choice, who would you choose and what would you do?

I would spend it with my fiance.   If we could do anything I think I would like to dive the great barrier reef all day!

9. What candle scent do you prefer?

I love vanilla scents or the cotton/laundry smelling ones.  So fresh!

10. Are you a city mouse or country mouse?

Although I don’t live in the country, I’m definitely a country mouse.  Dreaming of my own chickens someday!

11. What is your lucky number?

I don’t have one, but if I had to pick I would pick 27 since it’s my birthday, and what could be unlucky about that?
