Using your time wisely

With sales a little on the slow side right now, this is the perfect time to join Twitter, start your blog, join Etsy, join facebook, design new items and make new items.

It's also the perfect time to take a class, learn something new, read a great book, or even plant a garden. The garden is great for exercise, looks wonderful and helps save money on groceries. Oh, yes, you can plant vegetables right along with your flowers. I plant tomatoes behind my marigolds. I plant green peppers in the middle of my old rusty wheelbarrow with petunias around the edges.

My side yard was dug up for plumbing repairs and rather go to the expense of having it leveled and a new lawn put in, we moved the bird bath and a garden arch to the middle of the space and planted vegetables and flowers with paths between. Beautiful, satisfying to work on, and we get tons of compliments.


  1. You are a very smart lady! I love your garden!!!! =o) I don't have one but I planted a tomato plant and a green pepper plant beside my garage last summer and plan on putting more in this year. =o) My dad stuck some asparagus in there several years ago without telling me (what a surprise when it just appeared out of no where!) and I get that all to myself since nobody else in this house likes it......I'm kinda of glad! LOL

    Happy gardening!

  2. Your right this is the time to do all that you have suggested. That is what I am doing right now!!! Except the garden wish I had time for that,maybe later.
