I found garden bricks idea while reading The Glamorous Housewife and thought “Hmmm . . . now there’s an idea!” This little DIY combines my two loves: my garden and reading novels, a little non-kitschy whimsy.
In the past few months, I have noticed this bizarre attempt at advertising: a new Black Friday seemingly every month. Do these companies simply not understand the definition of “Black Friday”? Or, is this a not-so-clever marketing attempt to get the masses to big box stores and push more of their unneeded junk?
Regardless of the company rationale, I headed to Home Depot today for the helpful Early Spring April 5 Black Friday sales: B1G1 seed packes, started vegetables 5 for $10, and Miracle Gro topsoil 4 for $10.
After finding this seed-starting chart on veggieharvest.com, I should be able to being planting soon despite the unseasonably cold temperatures.
So here is what I got: organic seeds at 99 cents a pack!
After winter overstayed its welcome with daily temperatures ten degrees cooler than average, we had our first taste of Spring on a fine Good Friday. To my delight, my first bud of awakening appeared in the form of a crocus.
The snowdrops I planted two years ago, alas, never bloomed, so I am doubly excited for my little ones.
After a seemingly never-ending winter, I found the lovely sprouts peaking through the ground this afternoon. Only a mere two weeks ago, I had a school snow day, thinking Spring was weeks away, but these little hyacinths give me hope. Despite the continuing snow, Spring may not be “in the air” but “in the ground”.
