From sweet to romantic suspense, join me as I craft my happily ever after…
It’s S’winter in SoCal (That’s summer/winter for those of you who DON’T have kids who watch Phineas and Ferb)- and I have some things to think about when your money is tight/at an end:
My grandmother did all three. She taught me when I was very young that a plant wouldn’t grow unless you’d “borrowed” a clipping from someone else. You’d be surprised how many plants can grow from one snippet of Geranium, Jade, or Hen & Chicks.
My best friend, Wendy, shared a story about her mother, and a fond memory of Nasturtium seed hunting when she was a child. Now, we have mountains of yellow, gold, and red Nasturtiums every spring. (Thanks @onedie!) This leads us to January’s Recession Home Project:
Seeds of Friendship/Seeds of Love
Our seeds are a combination of functional/edible/and beautiful. I am currently saving egg cartons to make biodegradable seed-starters once the composted soil is ready! seedlings, here we come! The types of plants we’re growing are:
Next, the process of teaching little hands how to find seeds of life in what was once dead and shriveled. They love to help.
1. Large container.
4. Bio-degradable food leftovers like banana peels, orange peels, coffee grounds… um, thus far, that’s all I’ve got. Ideas would be useful.
5. Hand rake to blend soil.
Will be back in touch re: this composting project in a few weeks!
