Seeds of Love - Valentine's Craft

Seeds of love Card

 

 


V
alentine's day is a time to show appreciation for those you love. I love all my friends, and of course I love gardening. I've decided that I'm going to combine my two loves and give away seeds this February 14th! Of course, I won't just hand people a pile of seeds. Instead, I'm going to make everyone a special card to put the seeds in. Because the only thing better than getting a packet of seeds, is getting a packet of seeds and a really nice handmade card!

 

For this craft you'll need:

Construction Paper, Scissors, Glue, a Packet of Seeds.

F.W.'s Nature Journal

F.W. and dragonfly

 

 

 

 

 

I brought some empty notebooks, pens, pencils, crayons, and tape on our camping trip so everybody could make their own nature journal. I think it's the best way to remember and store all of the cool stuff you see when out in nature. Here, I'll show you how you can make one too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get a notebook that is a style and size that you are comfortable with. It can either be blank or lined, but spiral bound notebooks are the best type for this kind of journal.

Re-Garden - Day 5

DAY 5


The whole gang and I went to our local nursery and picked out plants for the new garden. We bought a lot of herbs, some flowers, a strawberry plant and even aplants in garden peanut plant! (F.W. wanted that one. I’m not sure if it will be warm enough to grow peanuts, but we’ll see.) We had those plus the plants saved from the old garden to plant. With everyone pitching in we planted them in no time!

Re-Garden - Day 4

DAY 4

 


wood chips
Before I add the soil to the garden, I want to create paths that help shape my actual planting areas. I’m going to make “wedges” in this garden, and each wedge will have a different theme. I’m going to separate each wedge by putting wood chips down. These wood chips will separate my garden beds and act as paths. Also they help cover the newspaper so I can put soil down only where I'll be planting (great compost is like a treasure and I don't want to waste any).

Day 2 

 


I
n addition to pulling weeds and raking I also moved the ring of rocks that surrounded the original garden. They had been there so long many were buried and some even had these cool looking ant colonies under them!

Re-Garden - Day 1

Remember my shade garden that I planted last fall? Well, this is what it looks like this spring!

Shade garden the next year.

I just raked it out, added some wood chips to prevent weeds from coming up, and watered it a few times. Aside from that I haven’t done any other maintenance and it is already starting to look so beautiful! Spring sure makes me happy!

 

It’s a good thing my shade garden doesn’t require a lot of work because I have a new project over at the Moo-Cow Fan Club Headquarters that is going to take up all my extra time this week.

Winter Potato! Indoor Gardening

 

Sweet Potato Head It's winter, the time of year that us gardeners usually feel sad to be separated from our gardens. But I'm never too sad because I'm never separated entirely from plants. Of course with a few feet of snow on the ground there isn't much I can do outside, but inside my nice toasty house is another story.

 

You too probably have a few plants inside your house right now, but did you know you don't have to limit yourself to just decorative plants? You can grow vegetables inside the house too!
