Spring is a busy time!

Well we’ve been busy busy busy around the hilltop the last two weeks! I have tomatoes and peppers from Your Small Kitchen Garden sprouting in my bedroom.

Finished QuiltAnd I’ve been working down my sewing to do pile so I can play with my brand new custom insert for my sewing table! I have a quilt ready to go to test this out. I’ve been wanting a large flat bed like this since I started quilting! We’ve even got some baking done around here. (Look for an awesome recipe tomorrow!)

Oh and you know, the whole mom thing.

So what has spring been like around your house?

We are having our first snow day of the season here! I know for some of us it’s a little early to put seeds in the ground, but it’s not too early to think about what you are going to plant. Since I’ve lived in California, I haven’t had a garden. I’ve decided that this is the year to change that! I always loved my gardens back in Texas, even when it was a small patio one.

One of my favorite gardening blogs, Your Small Kitchen Garden, is doing a giveaway for free vegetable seeds. This contest is open to US and Canadian residents and is open until February 24th. He is giving away tomatoes, peppers and squash seeds, so get your entry in today! (Note, this is not my giveaway, I just wanted to share it with everyone!)

Your Small Kitchen Garden is also on Facebook (where I first found it!) and not only talks about growing your own food, but also how to cook and preserve it. He also posts some neat tips on his Facebook page so be sure to give him a like!Snow 2
