Wow! I’m glad that so many of you liked the Melted Crayon Art post. I’ve taken a little break from crafting to enjoy being married and now it seems that we are relocating. I needed something to ease the stress so I have another Melted Crayon picture to post this weekend. Here’s a sneak peek.
Something about the glow of the little flame and the smell of crayons eases my nerves. In addition to that I’ve also become a master gardener. Who Knew?! I sure didn’t. We’ve had crazy success with our garden this year, even in the middle of a drought and water ban.
We really worked hard this year because it’s just failed in previous years. We tilled the soil then put down weed fabric. We cut out the hole for the plants and then used peat moss to install the plants or seeds. I really think the peat moss did the trick. Then we mulched to help the plants retain some moisture and it turned out great. My garden is completely organic. Just sunlight and water 🙂
We planted rosemary, basil, broccoli, carrots, spinach, collard greens, a ton of tomatoes, raspberries, strawberries, sweet corn, green beans, sweet peppers, hot peppers, pumpkins, cucumbers, and zucchini! A little too much for that area. And we didn’t realize that planting cucumbers and pumpkins close together would cause cross-pollination so we have orange cucumbers!
But I also planted red sunflowers and they are gorgeous! I hope they come back next year.
