  • I just took a spider that was stuck in my room outside to go free. ->
  • Just got my @PinetreeSeeds catalog in the mail. So far, I'm eyeing the Yukina Savoy Chinese Cabbage, Tronchuda Cabbage and Sea Foam Chard. ->

Gourd Lady + Erasing Plant Labels…

I just happened to catch the Gourd Lady on the Tonight Show.

I’m erasing some used plant labels, so I can reuse them.

Second Batch of Coleus Cutting + Jem + Dark Outside…

Cute Twitter Icon by Mirjami Manninen“Taking my 2nd batch of Coleus cuttings to overwinter. Since I took a cutting of Coleus ‘Gem’, I can’t get the theme song to Gem off my mind.”
— Here’s a link to the Jem and the Holograms theme song on YouTube…

“I just went in from gardening outside and looked at the clock… It’s only 5:30pm?…”
— and it was dark already…

@thefrugalgarden That sounds delicious! :: RT Kabocha curry corn soup hits the spot.”
I have to search for this recipe…
