I have been working out in the yard planting and getting ready for summer. With the help of a couple of cute girls, the Front Courtyard is now ready to use! Continue reading
Today I have a yard tour for you. I was going to do this earlier…but a hail storm shredded some of my flowers to shreds and they are just now starting to look good again! Mother Nature is a curious creature. :) Continue reading
I have taken a couple days off from blogging, but I am back.:) I have been working on some new projects and just enjoying a couple of beautiful summer days!
Today, I decided that I would take you on a tour of my summer porch.
I love this part of my home and I want it to be a welcoming place to all those who come to visit!
So, welcome to my summer porch!
I have a potting table down on my back patio and I love it! But we had a big maple tree that died and we had to cut it out and the potting table was right in front of this tree, so we had to move it out of the way to cut the tree down. This is what my poor table looked like when I pulled it out of the way:
I am really excited to try the new Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix. I recently went on a vacation and when I got home, much to my dismay, a couple of my potted plants had died. If I had had this mix,( that retains up to 50 % more moisture), my plants would have been just fine. If I use this soil, I won’t have to worry when I am gone for several days at a time. You also only have to fill your pots part way with this soil and then add water and it expands 3 times so it saves money on potting soil. I plant lots of pots of flowers outside in the summer, so it will be great to save on the potting soil and not have to water them quite so often!
I also want to try this mix in my garden because I have a little bit of clay in the soil and by adding this mix it will really help to add mulch and nutrients to the soil and the benefits can last for several years. Plus it will feed my plants for up to 6 months helping them to grow up to 3 times bigger, producing more fruits and veggies! It is an easy way to prep my garden for the spring and summer growing seasons.
So let’s all get out there and start growing!
