Garden Success!

20160527_120823 Do you see that? I have Strawberries! After checking this morning, I have 4 strawberries growing, I have flowers on my cucumber plant and on the pumpkin plant. I am so excited! Other than the lettuce I have not been able to grow anything until now! I knew that talking to Grandpa would help. Even our tree is growing really good. Although I can't take all the credit, my daughter has helped (before she moved out) with some of it - especially the lettuce. And I got a new tool to use, because I thought I was over watering - which I was. But I picked up this nifty hygrometer.   It's amazing how well it works. I am hoping that now that I know how much I am watering that my plants will do better. I know that I feel better about it now because I am not guessing on whether they need to be watered or not. I know if they need it or not. So hopefully, on my next update on the garden, I will be able to show beautiful, healthy plants (maybe with a little fruit or veggies on them too). Have a great day!

I think the main reason I would suggest organic seeds is this, regular seeds are retrieved from plants that had chemicals and pesticides used on them. BUT, organic seeds have a better chance of being done in an organic environment too. I get all my seeds through Burpee. I've dealt with them for a few years now and everything they sell is good quality and their customer service is good as well. They have a whole section on their site dedicated to organics and you find it right here. They have just about anything you could look for as far as seeds are concerned, but they also sell starter plants too.

When plants are grown with chemicals and pesticides, the seeds will carry these chemicals as well. While regular seeds will probably stil [...]

Anti Aging Facial System

20160502_095640 I am so loving these products. I have only been using them for a few days, but my skin is so soft after use and looks so much more healthy and moisturized. If they helps with the fine lines I will definitely continue to use them. So far though, I am very happy with the results. If you're interested, you can get it here at Amazon I received this product for free or at a discount for my honest review.
