Frugal Friday With Marsha--The Garden!

Happy Friday!  It's rainy here, but not too cold.  I think that spring is finally here!
Yesterday I picked up my daughter Heather, and granddaughter Zelda and brought them in to town to work on the garden in our back yard.

Gardening is pretty hard's fun and relaxing.  Hopefully we will harvest from our efforts.
My daughter found that the dirt around their house is just not fit for planting.  It's clay and we couldn't even dig in to it.  She had bought several packets of seeds and had some already started.
She's been saving scraps for the compost pile.  She had already sent me home 2 boxes to add to my pile.

This past Sunday my hubby and I worked 4 or 5 hours just preparing the area out back.  Hubby did buy pete moss and cow manure that he  roto-tilled in with what was in the compost pile.  I've not had much luck getting my pile to compost, but after the recent ice storms it was starting to turn.  I have no idea if we should have went and put the pile in, but I didn't figure it could hurt anything.

Heather and I spent 3 hours yesterday morning planting.
We have a little bit of a lot of foods:
green beans
bell peppers
snap peas
(In the house I have celery re-growing, basil and I have a planter of spinach.  Heather has herbs growing in her house too)

Here are the photos that I took yesterday:

 And this is my kitchen window sill:
I will be building a squidoo lens later today starting with these photos and then updating it monthly with new photos of the garden progress.

Wish us luck!  :)

Squidoo Hopping----Spring!

Please tell me that Spring might really be here this time!
They say there is to be no more overnight freezing temps---and no more snow, sleet, or other winter weather.  I really do hope they are right!
I am leaving soon to go out of town and bring my middle daughter back with me to help get our garden going.  (We do have covering planned for nights just in case).

This week I am asking that you share any lenses (1 or 2) that have to do with Spring--the season, gardening, flowers, events, etc.    Maybe the weather will get the hint!

Please share any blog posts you have written in regard to squidoo as well over the past week.

WIP Wednesday 4/24/13

Yesterday I realized I hadn't worked on any sewing since last Wednesday afternoon.  That's when I went to the stitch group at the quilt shop and finally worked on my bunnies again!

Laying all 20 of my bunny squares out and realizing that I only have 4 of them completed makes me really know just how much more work I have to do on them:
 I spent time last night working on the pillow cases for the kids.  You get a boring photo of the pile of pillowcases.  I do hope by next week that I have a few of them completed.   I'm still trying to figure out just how I am going to sew around the lettering.  I was going to hand sew around them like I am the bunnies, but now I am realizing how many knots I would have on the under side.  I don't think that I can stitch the way I would want around the names with me sewing machine.  I will have to ask around and get advice.
I have worked here and there on the plastic canvas coasters while here on the computer all week.  I am now up to 34 of them made and still quite a bit of the huge ball of yarn left.

I am linking up with Freshly Pieced
