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

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!

Just in Time for the Weekend!


Just in time for the weekend!! First let me say how absolutely convenient it is to FINALLY be able to purchase regular alcohol at the grocery store!  I’ve lived in Colorado now for 23 years and the ONLY thing you could purchase in the grocery store was beer and wine coolers which were 3.2% alcohol.  They’d call it 3-2 beer, lol.  Anywho . . . now they sell full strength wine and beer in the grocery store. Tried this out by the request of one of my girlfriends (thanks Sherry) and they are as refreshing and tasty as she said!  Pick some up this weekend, love! Angry Orchard Rose – yummmmm
