Potato Garden

Trying my hand at growing potatoes.  It started out because I was doing a low carb diet for about two weeks until I couldn't take it anymore.  Went to check on my bin of potatoes and found they were looking pretty sad and sprouting legs so I thought I'd try planting them instead.  Yep another Pinterest inspired bright idea :) We'll see what happens....My spuds may turn out to be duds.  I thought if they did turn out okay, that I could peel them , run them through my Williams and Sonoma chopper, and freeze them in the basement freezer.  My hope is that it would be pretty cool to have home grown potato hash browns or mashed potatoes in the winter from my very own garden. :)   




Memorial Day Weekend

Getting the house ready for a bunch of friends staying over the holiday weekend :)  I made a wreath for the front door. I can't find my bow maker...my one and only purchase ever from the Home Shopping Network...so I had to make it free hand...it's okay..could be better :)
