Trying the Cement Block Raised Garden Bed (As Seen on Pinterest)

I finally made my way over to Lowes today so I could buy the things necessary to try the Cement Block Raised Garden Bed idea I saw on Pinterest.



I wanted two beds, so I intended to buy 20 cement blocks, but I underestimated how heavy they were and how much space it would take up in the car. After grocery shopping, and making a quick trip to ToysRUs to pick up a birthday gift, space was limited. So, I bought:



6 bags of Top Soil

3 bags of Potting…

Remodeling my garden after letting it go - giveaway!

I have something to confess. My months of gardening went to waste a long while ago, because I saw a snake and lizards that made me feel as if my backyard was their own, not mine, lol. Usually I'm not afraid of garden snakes, but when I'm in the backyard alone a garden snake starts to look like an anaconda. Eek! With all the different types of garden / garter snakes there are, I can't tell when a poisonous snake is nearby. So to…

What the heck is all that brown stuff?

Oh no...



Checking out my garden this afternoon, I did my usually walk around on the patio smiling at the veggies plants and flowers that are growing well and speaking to them about the weather, their sexy leaves, and nice legs (stems) because I heard you're supposed to talk to plants. Don't judge me! Just after I open the screen door to speak to…

Pre-Spring Dining Room Decor

http://www.thepiggytoes.com/2013/02/19/pre-spring-dining-decor/

I know.  I’m having a baby in less than 1 week and need/should stop but I just can’t.  I’ve never been this uncomfortable during a pregnancy so since sitting and laying hurt, I’m standing.  A LOT.  And finding things to do around our home!  I planned to leave all of the Valentine’s Day decor up until after the baby arrived but on…

Non-Candy Easter Baskets

Confession: I am completely over all the Easter candy. You would think the Easter bunny lived in my house based on the amount of chocolate bunnies, chicks and carrots currently residing here. Enough already. I love sugar as much as the next girl, but for the most part, I really try and limit giving sugar to my kids. My children have already dug into the stockpile of chocolate disguised as an Easter basket that was dropped off a few days ago by their loving Grandparents. This year the Easter…

Updated Notes from the Garden

It’s been a little while since I’ve posted any notes from the garden but not to worry, things are greening up just fine!

Okay, so I might have made a teensy mistake with the Miracle Gro…I didn’t know you weren’t supposed to spray the leaves!  I was completely distraught when all of…

Swing- Mostly for Adults

No. Not that kind of swinging. We’re talking about the most beautiful (and clever) porch swings ever designed. Actually, these are the first improvement in porch swings since they were first developed in Ancient Greece some 2400 years ago.

A Little Twist in Holiday Decorating

Sure, tradition is nice. But to us, tradition is kept interesting when amplified by new ideas and a fresh (and always respectful) twist on old rituals. See some of the ideas we found here:

Fava Greens and Fava Beans

Sometimes I feel so incredibly small. Swallowed by the sea of information I attempt to swim in each day. The internet does that to me sometimes. Makes me feel even tinier in scope of the big picture.



I'm one of those types of people who keep turning around, mouth agape, ready to try something new that's caught my fancy. And yet, sometimes I don't feel like I'll ever master anything. I love sewing...but don't get around to it often. I love embroidery, but can't remember the last time I… Continue

Springtime is Garden Time

The transition time between the frigid, wet winter (yes, it gets cold and wet in Southern California too!) and the heat of the summer is, by far, my favorite time of the year. Growing up on the East Coast, spring came in spits and spats with the crocus bulbs blooming through patches of snow and the first robin spotted on the front lawn that looked like it had not seen the sun for months. But once the snow was completely gone and people braved the outdoors wearing only a t-shirt (even though…

It's My Garden And I'll Hoe If I Want To

It rained last night and when I stepped outside this morning, there was a wet, loamy, spring smell in the air.  My heartbeat accelerated with excitement because it is almost garden time.  I planted my first garden last year and I loved every second of it.  I went into the season with no expectations except to prove my mother wrong when it came to my ability.  I surpassed her expectations and I realized I am a gardener.

Get Your Green On

Aaaahhhhh, sigh of relief. The forties are now the twenties, the fifties are now the thirties, which makes this new millennium one of new energy, new action, and new commitments. In the past ten years of this new millennium we have each subtracted just as many years from our age! Sigh of relief again here. Whoever thought of this trend and helped it to catch on needs a big high five, a huge piece of cake, and free ice cream for life as a thank you. Now that we each have the opportunity to…

Easy Fresh Tomato Salad - so Yummy





So I have just discovered that the large bushes growing in the back

corner of our garden are actually tomato plants (I know, I'm not much of

a gardener). Not knowing much about all that, I was a bit sceptical

about actually eating… Continue

Gardening, a new love?

Spring is here! Technically we are almost in summer but with the strange weather patterns it feels like spring just arrived. With that, my husband and I got this gardening feel surge through us. Mind you, we have never been the gardening-type folk. We both suffer from seasonal allergies and our parents enjoyed working in the garden so we never had to. So why start now?



Food has gotten more expensive these days, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. When you buy produce from the… Continue

Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary

Mary, Mary quite contrary


How does your garden grow?


With crooked rows


And broken hoes


And alphabetized herbs refusing to show.
