Seed Packet Banner & Compost Tea

I ran across some 

old empty seed packets

that 

Buzz had stowed away


and thought they would make a 

FuN BaNner 


"Rusty" 

cheese graters

could be strung up too,


maybe with twinkling lights inside.

What do you think?


 Buzz keeps all kinds of 

Goodies

in the 

Garden Shed



tempting me to explore.


Still,

as you can see, 

it's a working shed 

too.


Today, 

while I'm taking pictures,

he's making

"Compost Tea"


Buzz's Compost Tea Recipe
(He makes this every two to four weeks)

Great for Organic Gardening

You'll need:

A Clean Five Gallon Bucket
Aquarium Bubbler
Painters Strainer
High-Quality Dark Compost
Sorgum Molasses
Rain Water (or Tap water that has set in the sun for two days)

To Make it:

Fill the bucket with water 
Fill the strainer bag/pouch with compost
Tighten pouch & suspend it in Water  
Add 3 or 4oz of Sorgum Molasses 

Make sure it's in a shady spot 
Turn on the Bubbler
Allow to run for 18 to 24 hours
  *The white foam on top is a good thing

To Use it:

Dilute with rain water (2/1 or 4/1)

Use a Watering Can to water individual plants
or use as a foliar spray directly on the leaves.



Best Wishes

from our

Garden 

to Yours!

Memorial Day - May we never forget

(photograph taken by our son  - edited with picMonkey)


With 
Honor 
and 
Gratitude

WE REMEMBER




Thank You!


"The Star Spangled Banner"

Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.

Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust.”

And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave! 
(Francis Scott Key, 1814)

Yo Yo Flowers / Pins



These little pins were so easy to make,
I just had to share.

(I used a six inch saucer for my pattern)

(embellished with a button)

(and stitched a pin clasp to the back)



They match the jumpers I made for my daughter.



Lest you think I'm a seamstress, let me be clear.

 Zero Zippers

Zero Buttonholes

I know my limitations!

":o)


Best part!

She understands my Limitations

and appreciates

my Efforts.


Love!

Springtime & Bunnies


Buzz and I enjoy wildlife in our garden.

That's why

we've purposefully added plants that will attract

Butterflies  Birds  and  Bees


(photo edited with picMonkey)

This Spring

a

Bunny

has noticed our garden.



We've planted

tomatoes,  peppers,  and 

a  few  odd  herbs

but now


we're planting

lettuce

just for her.


I know... 

we'll probably be

OVERRUN

by Bunnies 

before

our next visit

but we're sure

Having FuN

watching

Her!
