I love Pinterest!!! There that is the first step in ending an addiction right?!? Admit you have a problem.
As my boards will attest, I have 106 Boards that house 13, 740 pins! How does that happen! If I do one thing a day it will take me almost 38 years to try all those things... That's not even taking into account the other 5811 items that I have liked, but need to check the sites. What's a woman to do?
So I have decided it is time to go through and try some of the pins!
I will share with you each of my boards and try some of the pins! I hope that we have some fun!
Today I will share my love/hate relationship with GARDENING!!!
I love the idea of feeding fresh fruits and vegetables to my family that I have grown myself, unfortunately my black thumb often gets in the way as it did this year. I live in the high desert of Nevada, this is a totally different ballgame then the fertile soils of the east coast that I grew up with. So to beat the hard sand desert, I built this lovely raised garden similar to this one from Super Healthy Kids
I started the seeds in egg cartons like they did over at Little Alexander
And boy did they grow great...UNTIL I moved them outside. :(
I was able to keep them alive for about four weeks, but they never grew any bigger. I got a whopping 4 green beans and 6 strawberries off of my plants before my hose got disconnected while I was away and no one realized when they were watering for me that my plants were dying. Oh well, I still have these awesome boxes that I can try to grow again in later. Right now with 100+ degree heat I don't think I would survive out there let alone my poor plants.
Maybe next time I'll have to try one of these!
