Grows: Starting Seedlings 2014

If you have been reading for a while, you know my favorite time of the year is Gardening Season!
I'm obsessed, I mean look at my pinterest board! Almost 1,000 pins!

Even thought I have been MIA here on the blog, I have been keeping up with my Garden Chores!


Here is a reminder on how I started my seeds last year!
This year I pretty much did the same thing as far as recycling containers, using potting mix and indoor greenhouses. Plus I also am trying to start some seeds in the coldframe.



So far in the garden (outside) I have cleaned up, the hubs has roto-tilled, planted some Peas, Kale and Collards and then today we woke up to snow! Eek! Good thing Kale and Collards are cold hardy and they hadn't sprouted up yet! Fingers crossed the survive!

As far as inside goes, I have started Tomatoes, Peppers (Sweet and Hot), Beets, Swiss Chard, Spinach and Lettuce. 


I never realized, but my garden journal from last year has been a huge help. It's been so nice looking at it to see what worked and what didn't! Especially what thrived from seed, when and where I started the seed too. Also, it has kept me on track! I look at the entries for the week, and make sure I do what I did last year (if it worked).

Are you trying anything new this year in your garden?
I am really hoping for luck with my potatoes!

Crochets: A Gift for Baby C!

Things have been so super busy since I started teaching a couple weeks back! 
I'm hoping to wrap up some projects this week so I can photograph some of the amazing pieces my students have created!

But in the meantime, I wanted to share this baby blanket I made for Baby Boy C! 
I have to say this might be my favorite that I have done in a while!
I am loving the navy blue and white combo! It's just so classic to me!  

This was a great project to work on since it was rows of HDC (read: no thinking/pattern involved), until it was the size I wanted. Then I went around the edge to create a border. The key to the border was to do one round of SC in blue first (I tried jumping right into the white, and it didn't look great). Then two rounds SC in white. Then two rounds SC in blue. 

Then using HDC I crocheted a matching hat! I love baby hats, they are so quick to whip up!

Baby Boy C had an adorable Dr. Suess shower, and I loved that instead of a card you include a book, and to sign in the book so they could keep it and know it was from you! Such a great idea!
