Pumpkin & Watermelon Update


7 days from planting and they are sprouting right on schedule . . . watermelon plant still looking good (it’s at the end of the drip hose)!  Kinda hard to tell the watermelon plant vs. the weeds, lol.

Outdoor Kitchen/Bar Counter


I’ve begun the process of making my outdoor kitchen/bar counter & storage.

I decided to make a 20″ counter space + 12″ more for overhang.  The length is 75″.

Feel free to zoom in – lol – not bad for a rookie! and FYI the concrete does have a slight slant for drainage.

Not to shabby – It’s upside down – I need to put casters on it before I tip it right side up and add a couple more counter top supports. That’s it for now

– updates as progress continues.  😉

Knock Out Roses


I rescued this Knock Out Rose bush from the clearance section at Lowe’s a couple of weeks ago.  I’ve never planted or had a rose bush but these are suppose to be pretty maintenance free.  I certainly hope so!

Finally got it in the ground over the weekend. I noticed a couple of rose buds this morning when I was watering it! Yahoo

WOW Me Wednesday!


Don’t let the size fool you!  It’s the absolute perfect amount of delicious, yumminess!!  THICK Dove dark chocolate shell and yummmmmy raspberry sorbet!!! ONLY 150 calories – the perfect treat!  If you love dark chocolate and raspberry you will NOT be disappointed!!  😉

Garden is Planted


A couple pepper plants, a cherry tomato & 3 different tomato plants.  Thought I’d try these out – 1 Early Girl – 1 Better Boy & 1 Goliath.

Thought I’d try out some Rosemary and Basil this year.

3 Rows of lettuce, 1 row of carrots & 1 row of radishes – Love a fresh summertime salad!
