I'm still learning when it comes to what grows best when in the garden. We have such a mild winter that we can actually get almost two full rounds of summer crops in and we'd do a better job of it if the SVB wouldn't also thrive down here and get in two life cycles itself.
Seems like I'm learning carrots do best when planted in late summer and broccoli and lettuce do better planted in the winter and early spring. The beans and cucumbers are both doing well in their second planting, and although I haven't picked any yet, the beans seem to actually be growing straighter now than they did during the summer.
There are no more bees in the garden, and haven't been for some time, but these moths seem to be doing the job of pollinating the pickling cucumbers....however they could very well be the ones that lay the worms that bore into the cucumbers, thus negating their benefits, but we'll see.
We've had the request to add a keychain for Colon Cancer Awareness. I've added it to the Keychains for a Cause page today.
While I was buying the blue ribbon, I ran across the clearance rack of the ribbon store. Bad idea....Bad, bad idea.. :)
I picked up so many new and awesome ribbon from polkadots to more sports themed ones including cheer leading, two ribbons with sparkles, animal prints and even velvet!
My favorite, I think, are these two below. The one on the left is like a chenille and has such great texture, while the one on the right has neat beading.
I'll be getting these up a few at a time during the next week. I'm very excited about the response to the free shipping offer for breast cancer awareness month! If you've ordered one and come back to see this, I hope you're enjoying your key chains!
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
