Greenhouse Progress

 So within the next couple weeks we will be putting the glass back up around the greenhouse so that we can continue to use it over the winter. We have an unseasonably warm winter so far this year but it seems like it is starting to finally cool off. So far, the greenhouse is still doing really good. Everything is still growing and the tomatoes are finally starting to get bigger.

My bell peppers are still producing as well. We are so lucky to have a longer growing season here than in most places. I am very thankful for that as we have been relying more on the garden and greenhouse this year and hopefully more so next year.

I know you can't really see it, but that pepper plant has about 5 peppers on it right now. The one in the ground has 2 or 3. The bell peppers off this plant have a sweeter taste than anything we can get at the store. 

I am so blessed that we have been able to grow everything here in the greenhouse with absolutely no chemicals. Even the soil is our own compost from the house so there are no chemicals in any of it. This has been an all natural greenhouse for the last 3 years now.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing what we have been able to grow in our greenhouse.

Have a great day!

Garden Progress - November

 So, it seems that for most of our garden, the growing season may be coming to an end. Many of the bean and melon plants have started to die even though they are getting the water they need. However, now our tomato plants seem to be doing really well.

I know from the picture above it still looks pretty green, but it's really not so much anymore. The closer pictures below seem to show the dying plants much better than this far shot.

This is a few of our bean plants. You can see the browning that is happening to these. I believe there are about 4 or 5 plants in there and I think at least 1 is still doing really well, but the others seem to be dying off now. 

Even the cucumber plant is not thriving like it was. I think it may be getting to cold in the evening even though we aren't freezing yet. We have been getting into the 40's and 50's. So, I guess it's time to start planning next years garden and enjoy the veggies we have gotten this year from this garden.

What are your garden plans next year. Leave me a comment below and let me know.

Have a great day!

Acne Slayer Acne Treatment

 I received Acne Slayer for free or at a discount for my honest review. This post may contain affiliate links. This means if you make a purchase, I will receive a small commission at no cost to you. To see my full disclosure, click here

We have long been looking for something that actually works for acne. I believe we have finally found it!

This is Acne Slayer. I've never dealt with acne but my daughter has off and on since she hit puberty years ago and we have not been able to find anything that really worked for her, until now. She said when she applied this, it burned a little bit but not too bad, it was doable for her and she does not like pain of any kind. So, we were off to a bad start. 

I didn't think about it anymore after that until she told to feel at the bottom of her nose where she had a pimple that morning. It was drastically diminished! She was so excited. She said that it says to use it twice a day so she put on again that night. In the morning, the pimple was entirely gone. She has been using it ever since. So yes, the bad thing is that it does seem to burn or sting when you put it on, but it does work. She absolutely loves it!

So if you would like to give this a try head over to: and get your bottle! I would love to know your thoughts and if it worked as well for you. Leave me a comment below and let me know.

Have a great day!

Dating in Los Angeles

 Dating can be hard! I know this because just 7 years ago I was trying to do just that. I live in a small town so that makes things even harder, however, if you're in a big city such as Los Angeles, there are so many different options that one could take for a first date or even a fifth date. If you are familiar with the area, the ideas for a date are numerous. Of course, sometimes finding that special someone to take on a date can be difficult at times too, especially right now.

A good idea for a date right now would consist of something outdoors, but this doesn’t really limit your date choices either. Being in California, the beach is always a good idea. The weather is usually pretty nice so a walk on the beach is a great way to get to know someone that you may have just met. It’s also a great way to reconnect with someone you have been seeing for a while. A picnic on the beach could be a nice day out or a fire on the beach at night is a great way to get to know someone.

If you’re having trouble meeting that special someone you can always try Los Angeles Personals. I met my husband online so this does work. Don’t get me wrong, it doesn’t make it easier, just possible. Online dating can be difficult. You will have to kiss a few frogs before you find your Prince Charming but isn’t that the way it works with dating in general. Another way to meet someone would be through Dating in Los Angeles. These are both ways in which you could find someone close by that could be the right fit for you.

One thing that makes a great first date is hiking. Near the beaches are some good trails that you could go for a walk on. My understanding is that the downtown area has some good art that could be walked during a date as well. Of course movies are always a good choice for a date and Vuvies will have movies that you can watch without paying for a subscription.

Another way to get good date ideas is to look online if you don’t really know what to do in the area. There are many good websites that have good ideas such as Mydomaine and ladateideas. Both of these sites have a lot of good ideas for where to go on a date. So even though San Diego may not be very close there are many other places to go in Los Angeles anyway. Los Angeles has a lot of breweries and bars that the night is sure to be fun, if you find you like the person or could be an easy way to end the night too. No matter what you decide to do make sure you take an interest in the person you are with to see if that person could be the one.
