Okay. I think I might be in a better mood today. Maybe. Um. A little bit anyway.
I decided to take a page from ‘Cranky’s‘ book of all things political but with a slight modification.
**Cranky announced on Facebook that he would no longer be a part of political rants on Facebook and noted that he would unfollow anyone from either party that is ranting.
I totally get it.
I will no longer be participating in political crap on Facebook either. At least not so much.
Not at all. Fingers, eyes, and toes all crossed.
However, I won’t unfollow you if you do.
My blog is a totally different story. As evidenced by yesterday’s epic return rant to the blog-o-sphere after a 3-week absence. I will rant here as often as I like because…
My blog. My rants.
Same with Twitter.
Nobody has to read or agree.
Here’s our week ahead…
Good weather to stay inside and craft or sew.
Still, I wish it was like this.
I’m so ready for flowers and sunshine and veggie gardens.
Mentally I’ve already planted my patio container veggies.
I’ll have my standard “salad” garden.
Lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, radishes, and green onions.
I like the idea of being able to literally pick a simple salad out your back door.
Then I’ll change things up a bit.
I really want to try some new growing techniques too and this seems super easy.
Have any of you ever planted like this? Just planting right in the bag?
I think it’s genius and I’m going to give it a go.
I’d also like to try this. They’re barrel spuds! I’m pretty sure I won’t need 100lbs. but I’m willing to try for 50lbs. just to see.
The instructions for these barrel spuds can be found here.
And one more…
I’m definitely trying this.
I usually buy my tomato plants already well on their way but I really want to see if this works!
The instructions for these tomato seedlings can be found here.
I’ve never tried one of those upside down tomato plants but I’m curious to know how those turn out.
Also, I was happy to discover in my search of all things patio container gardening, that you can plant squash in containers too! I didn’t know that so they’ll be on my list too!
Have any of you thought about your upcoming gardens? Or maybe you’re lucky enough to be in a place where you can grow at this time of year or year round – that would be fabulous.
Well, folks. A late post but I kept it light and didn’t rant or vent. Kept everything on the bright side with my face towards the sun moving forward. I hope this is a trend our country will take as well.
Face towards the sun.
