Getting Crafty

Well I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything here – but now that I’ve started posting on facebook, best make sure this is at least marginally updated!

So I was thinking the other, as I think many people do, “wouldn’t it be nice to have a bit of extra cash.” But I didn’t really know how to make that happen. I have a job, I’m out a lot of evenings with work or work related things.  I don’t really want to get back into wedding photography – at least not full time – as I like having weekends with my man. Then I was just browsing Pinterest, as you do, and saw a picture of a painted pallet sign and thought “I could do that.” And thanks to having a husband who works in the timber industry, we had a few scrap pieces in the shed from other projects. I did a quick search on how to make these signs, got what I needed…and made a sign!

And it turned out great! I was so impressed with a few time go! So I found some more wood, and got a bit creative.

I’ve now made these 4, and just (almost) finished another 5 today. And get this – I like doing it! So, if all goes well, I could make a few extra pounds/bucks/cash by doing something I enjoy! I’ve already sold one, been asked to make at least one more – so let’s see where this goes!

If you are interested, check on my facebook photos for ones that I have available and am selling (if you’re in the UK anyway).  Or if you want one made – send me a message and I’ll see what I can do for you!

Now off to scrub this paint out from under my nails!

1 Foot Vegetable Garden

3x3 Vegetable Garden

3×3 Vegetable Garden

Well…it’s slightly more than a foot…but the idea is that you grow one vegetable within 1 foot square.
My garden is 3×3 by 1 foot deep. My handsome husband deserves a pat on the back for constructing this little garden!!

So we sealed all the wood up, built it and filled it all up with soil/compost. Then I planted in the seedlings of my growing veggies. Some of the seedlings are a bit young I think, so I’m hoping I haven’t moved them too soon, but some of them were definitely ready for a bigger growing space! I also planted the lettuce and carrots which instructed to sow directly.

Also, the pepper seeds didn’t germinate with the other ones…don’t know why, they were in the exact same conditions, but oh well. So I have attempted to just plant straight pepper seeds. I didn’t read up on this or anything, I just grabbed the seeds from a pepper I was using for dinner and planted them in the soil…so we’ll see what happens there!

So there are 9 vegetables planted in my 3×3 foot garden, and I can’t wait for them to start growing to eat them hopefully in a few months!!

Can’t wait to see how my little Garden Experiment turns out!
