So after going to visit with him this morning I needed a distraction!! So I cooked :p The first thing I cooked was this amazing sounding meatsauce that Trish posted about the other day. It's actually still cooking in the crockpot right now and won't be ready til midnight but it has the whole house smelling amazing!!! Can't wait to taste it!!
The garden is starting to look more like a garden now that the plants are becoming older and the flower garden is starting to come to life too even though they're all still babies.
Then the last project of the day was an idea I got from Jeane that looked too neat not to try. Subirrigation!! Basically I took a 1-liter plastic bottle and cut it about one third up. poke holes along the top with a heated knife for air holes. Then invert the top into the bottom. You put a piece of felt into the bottom to act as a wick to draw up water into the soil and fill it up with soil. I'm trying to start some brand new seeds this way...roma tomatoes. Though it seems to work well for established plants too. This conserves water and it's a great way to recycle soda bottles!! I'm excited :D Check out Jeane's gardening blog for all of her experiments with it!
How's your Saturday going??
