Our little Elizabeth has moved on from army crawling to a modified regular crawl! She lifts her bottom into the air between movements, lol. It is so cute, oh my word. ^_^ I can’t believe how much she’s changing every day!
So, one week ago, Samuel and I started some seeds in a tiny greenhouse I bought after finding out as much as I could about seeds and container gardening. The greenhouse is by Jiffy and was purchased at WalMart for about $6; that seems kind of high but we’ll be using it for years to come by just buying more peat discs, which are inexpensive. Thank you, Katherine, for encouraging me to try seeds because it has been a really fun project to do with him! He is so excited to check on our plants every day!! We’re growing cherry tomatoes and cucumbers. They have all sprouted and are each already two to three inches tall. :)
And with the money I saved on buying seeds instead of young tomato and cucumber plants, we picked up three strawberry plants! I’ve never done strawberries before, and I’m a bit intimidated to be honest, but we’re going to give them a try. The guys at the nursery said they’re easy. I chose two pink flowering plants and one white flowering; we’ll see if there’s a difference between the berries.
And speaking of berries, I made blueberry pancakes for breakfast yesterday morning! I’ve never made any kind of pancakes before (all the work just didn’t appeal to me) so I was really happy when they turned out perfectly tasty. I got the recipe from a fellow WP blogger. :) The only thing I changed was the half & half; I didn’t have any so I used milk in its place.
