My first attempt at gardening continues to reap rewards of veggie loveliness
Aren’t these the prettiest radishes you’ve ever laid eyes on?
Would you agree that I’ve gone off the deep end here?
But really…they are pretty.
Except for those little pesky green worms who lost their lives when I caught them munching on the green leaves; this experience was great and I would give my gardening efforts an A+!
They even look good with dirt on them…how many things in life can boast that?
check out my
cheap cute garden marker… wanna know where I got it?
I’ll tell you in a sec 🙂
I gave these little beauties a bath and I still think they look better with a bit of soil on them but now they are ready to eat…add some salt and pop them in your mouth.
Oh yes… about the garden marker. Okay, remember…no you might not…but in one post awhile back I mentioned that I “had” to eat some sweet rolls.
I just HAD to!!!
Because…the little cup of icing has a little silver lid on it and I used them to make my garden markers this year.
Oh the sacrifices I make for my garden.
I needed about 10…those calories shouldn’t count. Right?
so here’s the DIY tutorial for the garden marker in the top photo
tell me if I go to fast…
buy these sweet rolls
cook and eat these sweet rolls
wash little round silver lid on icing container
write on it with a black sharpie
punch hole at top with nail and hammer
use spare wire to make a loop
I used 14 gauge wire to make the stake, about 10″ in length
with pliers grab one end of wire fold over and the bend the end up to make a hook.
stick it in the ground
No need to thank me…that’s what I’m here for!
he’s growing quite nicely…and quite slow
I’ve seen babies ween faster than he is at turning red!
I wanted to pick him…but hubby said “no”
I said maybe he’s supposed to be green
you know there are green tomatoes!
duh!…we fried them and eat them.
he still said NO!
Patience is not my virtue…it’s my torment!
Now I need a sweet roll.
So what’s new in your garden?
I think it’s time for a give-a-way 🙂
