Saturday DIY Tipsy Planter Garden pictures

Good Saturday night to ya.Today was a great day to be outside.Got a lot done on the yard.I did go to some yard sales this morning.But I didn't find anything I NEEDED.It was even better because a lot of the sales I went to was so close to my house.Didn't waste a lot of gas traveling around.But hubby and I saw something in someone yard that the both of us like.And hubby said I can make that for you.But more on that later.

I did take picture of the garden they are pitiful due to the plants are so small it almost looks like you are looking at dirt.
But believe it or not you are looking at tomato plants and pepper plants barley can see them.
Also put in cukes,squash,cantaloupes.

Today I put together a tipsy planter I saw sometime ago on the web on someones blogs.I am sorry for not remembering  whose blog.It looked like such a fun project.I had to do it.
I had to go though my Terra cotta pots and find the ones that would work for me.I had my husband drive a metal rod about 18" into the ground.This was my base then I took the largest to the smallest pots and stacked them.Filled them with potting soil and plants.The plants I spent not much at all at Walmart and Lowe's.Two 6 cell packs from Walmart $1.78 and 3 plants at  98 cent a piece from walmart, and one asparagus fern $1.98 from walmart.

Okay back to what hubby and I saw.It was a birdhouse.We went to this one yard sale and the lady had numerous birdhouse that were not functional but cute.We both really like them.So my hubby came home and made this.
The wood was given to us from a neighbor and the roofs are old metal paint pans.This is the design he liked.He is going to build me the one I like soon.
This is it in one of my beds
Fits right in.That's all for me until next time I hope the Lord keeps and bless you.

Friday Night Chit Chat and My Week in Review

I am so glad it is Friday.I don't know, but for some reason this week seemed liked it dragged on and on.I have been busy so it was not like I was sitting on my thumbs.

This week I began trying to get my heirloom tomatoes plants.Thinking this would be a easy task pop into my Walmart or Lowe's.But this was a no go.They had heirlooms in 4" and 6" pots and the asking price was $3.58 a pieces.This was not what I was expecting.I was looking for the cell pack 4 or 6 to a pack.For a much cheaper price.So Monday was a no go for putting my garden in.Tuesday I thought I would pop in to Home Depot to check to see if they carry tomatoes in cells packs.They do and I bought them.So I was able to put my garden in.
This year we planted tomatoes,peppers,green beans,squash,cukes,and cantaloupes.I really hope the garden does good.

Today I topped off the truck I only had to put $20.00 in to fill it up.Went grocery shopping Giant spent $32.95 got my gas point to 123.At Walmart spent $58.04.Total of $90.99.

For me this weekend I hope to hit some yard sales.Gonna be a big one less than a mile from my house 50 families.I hope to find something I NEED.
That's all for me.Until next time I hope the Lord keeps and bless you.

Got my tomatoes today and put my garden in

Happy Tuesday.Well I was able to get my heirloom tomatoes today.I got 16 plants for $6.05 that's more of what I was thinking.I went to home depot and they had them in 4 packs instead of selling 4" and 6" plants.
I also went to our small town hardware store and got my peppers.They had 4 packs for $1.75 so all in all not bad.So I was able to put my tomato's and pepper in for well under $20.00.

So I headed home and got my garden planting basket caddy and spent the day in my garden.It was perfect.I bought this basket sometime ago and I thought I would use it for outside meals but I decided against it.So I turned it into my garden caddy all my tools and such right where I need them.
It comes in handy seed packs, scissors,twine,garden marked.Everything right where I need it.
It was a long day but a good one got a lot of work done before the rain.And was able to spend time doing something I love and also with my thought and my Lord.

I will take pictures of the garden tomorrow by the time I was done today the light made it look like everything was dirt.
Until next time I hope the Lord keeps and bless you.

Good Monday to Ya

I hope your weekend was great.Our was a busy one.Was able to hit some yard sales I only was able to buy a garden shovel for $1.00.Not so bad tried to stay close to home due to the price of gas.

Saturday afternoon was weeding and trying to figure out how to rid my yard of this weed called Creeping Charlie.Any information about how to destroy this weed from my yard is greatly appreciated.
BBQ some chicken for dinner Saturday night such a pretty day.

Sunday went to Walgreen's picked up on the Dawn had coupons.The rest of the day we were in the yard enjoying the day.For the temperature to be this wonderful this early is rare for our area.So I have been taking and enjoying every moment I can.

Today we did the finally till on our garden.I thought I would go and buy my tomato plants and pepper plants,But a no go, went to Walmart they did have tomato plants $3.58 a piece.Went to Lowe's $3.48 a piece.Came home and called our locale greenhouse they said they were all out.Today is April 16th and they are all out WOW.We try to buy the heirloom tomato plants when ever possible.But if this is going to be the price then it will be a no go this year.
That's all for me now.Until next time I hope the Lord Keeps and Bless you.
