I absolutely love the holidays, but there is something so refreshing about the start of a new year! It's crazy to me to think that in just a few short weeks I'll begin planting and prepping my beds for this year's garden! Today I'm sharing a look at the year ahead for my garden!Read More
Autumn is my favorite time of year. I saw an Instagram post the other day that said, "There are only two times of year, Autumn, and waiting on Autumn." For me, that is 100% true. I live for this time of year. The crisp feeling in the air, the beginning frenzy of holiday planning, wearing layers, soups and tailgating appetizers, Fall scented candles, and one of my favorite things, planting my Fall garden!Read More
With the crazy bouts of raining and flooding we had this year, a lot of my summer vegetables failed to produce as well as they have in past years! With a weak summer harvest season, I'm eagerly looking forward to Fall, and having a pumpkin patch is at the top of my Fall garden priorities!Read More
If you saw my Mother's Day post, you know that I spent my weekend doing what I love most, spending time working on projects and hanging in the garden with Stella!! I knew that I wanted to build a banquette to stretch the whole back length of her playhouse, and God gave me the beautiful weather I was waiting on to get the job done!! I'm sharing my DIY project, completely made with scrap wood I had sitting in my bulk trash pile!! I'm so happy with how it turned out!!Read More
Anyone that knows Stella knows that she is a nature baby. She has loved being outdoors from the time she was born. I often say that she would live outside if I would let her!
Last spring, I planted a small crop of cherry tomatoes and carrots because I knew that they would be easy for her to pick. I never expected her to love them as much as she did. Her love for the garden made it that much more important to me to create a toddler friendly space this spring!Read More
If you read my earlier post, you know that I've been dreaming up Stella's playhouse for a while now! I cannot even begin to explain how pleased I am with this project and how it turned out!! I am an amateur carpenter at best, but y'all, I somehow managed (with the help of my family) to make one amazing (and structurally sound) playhouse!! I am SO excited to share this project with you!!Read More
An herb garden is a great way for a beginning gardener to get their feet wet! Herbs are relatively low maintenance, so they are a great option for someone who isn't quite ready for the full time relationship a vegetable garden can require. With most enjoying full sun and moderate water, they are perfect for those of us living in Texas!
Before you start your herb garden, there are a few things to consider:Read More
Before Stella was even born I began thinking about her playhouse! I didn't have one growing up, but the idea of a space that she can grow in that will be her own (plus her sibling's if we decide to have a number two) sounds so wonderful to me.Read More
