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?
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!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
