May 10th – “Make sure you have all of your starters or seeds in the ground so that they’ll be ready for the harvest.”


Starts and seeds were planted into the bed about a month ago.

I have some tomatoes,


radishes, microgreens, volunteer brussel sprouts,


broccoli, lettuce, and green beans.


I’m already starting to see some of the results! It’s very early for tomatoes to be on the vine, but maybe these are super early girls. IMG_9052[1]

May 5th – “The gold and olive tones of your lines and furniture will be highlighted by a long panel picture of trees with golden leaves. A real green plant, as long as your water it, is a good fit too.”

I just acquired a piece of new furniture. It was the perfect time to move a few things around.

I took this pathiphyllum (Peace Lily) from my office to my bedroom. It brightened everything up. It’s amazing what a little plant can do!


It goes well this painting of trees with golden leaves that I already had on my wall.


Thanks for the easy one, horoscope!

February 26th – “A late-season cold snap hits a foul note. Make sure your strawberry crop pulls through the bad weather.”

How did my horoscope know that I had strawberries in my garden?! Very strange!

There has been heavy (flooding type) rain in my area along with cold fronts, so I have not ventured into my garden for a while. Everything is overgrown with weeds filling most of the yard. Some of the weeds have flowers which I think are very pretty.



I checked the strawberry plants and aside from some weeding I need to do, they looked fine. I don’t know if they’ll last another season anyway. One gardener told me that it’s better to plant new ones every year even if strawberries are perennials. We’ll see if these bear any fruit this year.

What I didn’t expect was the romanesco crowns that “suddenly” popped up despite my neglect.


Some of them were already bolting, but they still tasted good! I harvested a few crowns and had them for dinner. There’s nothing like just picked produce for a home cooked meal!
