Goal progress and Seedling update

BEFORE-
moving all my craft stuff into my hope chest.

I’ve not mentioned much about my progress on the goals I listed because… well, there really hasn’t been much to mention. This weekend I should be able to get a great portion of my organization project done. What a weight will be lifted once this is accomplished! I got a jump start on it tonight. Here are some pics, and of course I managed to sneak in some pics of my seedlings (day 26 – almost a month old, eek!).

another BEFORE picture.
Also, two filled file boxes of yarn in my closet – I need to get organized so I can get back into crochet and use it up!

Where it was previously housed.
Finally cleaning out the bottom of the “Narnia Closet”

Available space

AFTER-
filled it up, with room for a few more things.

another AFTER picture.
hope to use up some of what’s in here and move on to new projects, finally…
sewing machine fit, too – score!

The only things that didn’t fit.
If I don’t finish the book page wreath project by June 1st, it’s staying in that trash bag and going out to the curb.
Found a use for the baskets.

Seedlings, pineapple and aloe plant.

I had used the top of the hope chest for my seedlings as of last week, and here’s a peak at how they’re coming along.  Getting big!!

Pineapple plant.
This Oct it will be 2 years from harvesting a pineapple, so another should be on its way *very* soon!

It’s getting so big!

Aloe!

What kind of esthetician would I be without the above plant?!?

Will be planting these babies this weekend.

Melons, Lettuce, Herbs, and a few flowers.
Planting this weekend.

I’m so loving this grow-your-own-food thing!

I think next year I’ll add cucumbers and tomatoes to my deck garden.  Apparently, they’re easier plants and what most people start growing.  Not melons. Oops!  I also have some squash seeds that I hope to start in my greenhouse soon, so I may have them for Fall.

Do you have any recommendations on what to add to my garden?

Seedlings, Day 13

Here are pictures of the seedlings at Day 13 (Saturday).  I moved some into new containers.

I finished planting the cilantro and basil, but didn’t take a final picture.

Love watching them grow and change.  One of the melons looks like it’s about to flower – exciting!

Six days of seedlings

Here are a few pictures from this past week documenting the seedlings growth – it was so fast!  Can’t wait to plant them!

Day 2

you can start to see a few popping out

Day 3

starting to see more.

Day 4

I love observing the different growth rates.

Day 6

I’m going to need to figure out where to plant some of these soon 

I can’t wait to see the growth this week holds!
