I took advantage of all the warm and sunny days to get my herb and vegetable gardens going. We’ve overcast days are ahead but that doesn’t mean I still won’t be adding more additions. So far, we have six varieties of tomatoes, 6 different types of peppers (sweet & spicy), eggplant, cucumber, zucchini, peas, and a whopping 18 varieties of herbs. This doesn’t count the watermelon growing in my kitchen windowsill and a few more vegetable started by seed. I’m hoping with the knowledge I’ve learned from books and experiences of what did and didn’t work last year, that we’ll reap a far larger harvest than last year.

A few of these photos for taken when my family and I went for a day during Easter weekend to the beach. We hadn’t been to the beach in over two years so it was really nice to get back! The weather was perfect and better than we expected for on April day (usually it does nothing but rain here in Oregon during this month)! Enjoy the pictures! I plan on sharing more from our trip soon!
It’s no surprise that The Postage Stamp Vegetable Garden by Karen Newcomb is a best selling guide. It’s chock full of information in an easy to understand format that’s suitable for the beginner as well as for the more advanced gardener. The completely revised version will have one well on their way in utilizing even the smallest of spaces to grow their own organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers! This year I’ve been following the methods suggested in this book for my own raised bed gardens and patio pots. I can already see a favorable difference compared to the garden I attempted last year .
The Adventures of Pajama Girl and the Coronation of the Cupcake Queen is a cute story. My six year old daughter told me she really likes this book since it features two of her favorite things, pajamas and cupcakes. Even I was drawn in by the illustrations of a dream land filled with sugary sweet treats. But all sugary goodness aside, there’s a very important message to be learned in this tale. The lesson is a very pertinent one about not stealing, remembering to include others when possible, forgiveness, and not to ruin other people’s day just because your feelings got hurt and you got left out. These lessons are important to learn as children will certainly encounter them in their own daily lives.
As of last year, I was introduced to essential oils for the first time. I’ve been learning about all the benefits overtime and have been pleased with my findings. To benefit completely, one will need to do a bit of testing and experimentation to find which and what works best for them. Two oils I believe that are best to start out with are Peppermint and Lemon. These two oils can be used for household cleaning, aroma therapy, skin care, stress relief, immune system boosting, and much more!
