Garden Newbie Update

Our little harvest...

We have a harvest!  :)  WOOT WOOT!  I was happy a few weeks ago when I saw some growth but then I never saw the veggies growing and I was getting worried that nothing was going to grow.  

No worries we had some delicious peas that  made it and there are 3 baby cucumbers growing!  I am so thrilled that we have some veggies!  I do not see tomatoes yet but the plant is getting taller and it looks healthy.  I believe the carrots are unsuccessful since I see nothing growing.  Note to self that those are too hard to grow!   :) We are still waiting to see if we will grow a pumpkin or just the really long vines.  

It was truly enjoyable to sit on the deck munching on the yummy peas with my family!  Fun!

Next year I will plant earlier and find what grows best here.  I am thinking spinach, peas, cucumbers, peppers,and tomatoes.  Any advice for this garden newbie?

James 5:7 ESV 

Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and the late rains 

I think I learned to be patient and trust in HIM...even with my little garden!  :) Now I need to pray for some wisdom in gardening!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
