kids-garden-2Instead of leaving everyone hanging, wondering why there are no new posts, I decided to purposefully take a blogging break for the next week or so.

I am currently under the weather and need to focus on getting better.  I thought I had been taking it easy, getting better, but it seems I need to be doing even less.

In the mean time, hope you are having fun with your Spring gardening adventure.

mason jars

After spending all the time canning produce from your garden or elsewhere, the last thing you want to happen is to have jar go bad and not realize it till you “smell something funky” when you go to your pantry.

Take a few minutes to look over the jars you have.

Are they all still sealed?

Do any need to be wiped down?  If so, do it now before you forget.

If any have gone bad, dump the contents and sanitize the jars.  Check for chips before storing them till they are needed again.

Here are some giveaways from around the web. A few things these giveaways have in common:

  1. A garden theme
  2. They are not on major commercial sites
  3. The majority do not have thousands of entries (so the chance of winning it higher for you)

I hope you find something that peaks your interest.

If you know of others, please leave a comment below. I will check it out and add it, if appropriate.

 

My Busy Green Garden – curteosy of Picture Book Builders. She also includes an interview with the author, which is an insight you do not normally find with books you read.

Tidying up with Gardener’s Hollow Leg & giveaway! – Raise Your Garden has a very practical and useful giveaway.  I can think if so many uses. It doesn’t hurt that I can relate to grass being an unintended victim of gardening activities. (It drives my husband crazy!) So, perhaps this can double as relationship counseling.

A Series Of Experiences

This week finds us out of the house quite a bit.  So, I thought I would take the opportunity to look back at some posts from the past. One thing that stuck out to me was the difference in weather between years, even though all these posts are from March. Another theme I noticed is that […]

A Gardener's Take On Being A Proverbs 31 Woman

This post from a few years ago came up in a search I did recently.  Reading through it, I was reminded of how our gardening can start off with great intentions, but time can make us forget the blessings and larger purpose it may serve.   Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far […]
