Seeds ~ Sloggers ~ Soul Collage








My plans for the weekend didn't quite come together. DH did get the garden ready for planting , but the rain came before we could get any planting done. I'm thankful for the rain we're receiving , each drop brings us closer to being drought free. It'll be a wonderful growing season if we continue to get rain each week .
I ordered some seeds a couple of weeks ago and received them last week. Most of these seeds are hard to find in my area.

Bloomsdale Savory ~ Spinach
Dipper Gourd
Echinacea purpurea ~ Purple Cone Flower ~ Herb
Greek Pepperoncini ~ Salad Pepper
Jack O'Lantern Pumpkin
Kabocha Squash ~ Spaghetti Squash
Kentucky Wonder Beans
Large Red Cherry Tomato
Leaf Lettuce Salad Bowl
Nasturtium Jewel Mix ~ Deters Pest
Sweet Spanish Onions
Tall Mammouth Sunflowers

Last week I went to the Farmer's Alliance Store , an old general store to pick-up some onion bulbs and other seeds. While I was there I found these garden shoes , they're called ~ Sloggers ~ these garden clogs are * Made in the USA * and were only 12.00 , I couldn't believe the price. I have a pair of the cheap crocs for gardening , but they always end up full of dirt and rocks , hoping these will be better for gardening. Check-out http://sloggers.com/ for garden wear.

I created a soul collage about gardening a couple of weeks ago. Gardening does feed my body and soul. I've been thinking about starting ~ Journal Collages ~ , for myself. I would do collages on front and journaling , notes , quotes and anything else I wanted to add on back. I may start these today.

Hoping to get my fingernails dirty this week , if it dries up.

Looks like a fun variety of seeds.

The Soul Collage card is beautiful. And what a good idea to do Journal collage cards.

Purple coneflowers are one of my favorite. I'm jealous that you're able to start gardening so early. We've got more snow coming tomorrow! Oh well.

I have had a pair of garden clogs like your sloggers for about 10 years now. They're so nice cuz I can hose them off and they dry right out. I hope you like yours.
