My First Greenhouse!|$43 Walmart Greenhouse

Good evening friends!

Earlier today I put together my first greenhouse from Walmart. I bought the greenhouse online almost a month ago ๐Ÿ˜† and it recently got delivered.ย  The reason why I decided to buy a greenhouse, because the weather outside is still chilly and I don’t want to keep having to bring my seedlings in and out the house.

So far, I’m really enjoying having a greenhouse and hoping it will last for a few growing seasons. If you are looking to grow food and you live in a colder climate a greenhouse house might be a good alternative for you.

Below I have so pictures and a quick vlog for y’all to see what we have inside the greenhouse.

The greenhouse was super easy to put together.

Tripp “helped” me put the greenhouse together ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ˜†
I use the bottom as storage. The extra weight help keep it from blowing off the deck.

Thanks for coming by!

๐ŸŒŽHappy Earth Day!๐ŸŒŽ

Good afternoon friends,

I almost forgot that today was Earth day ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ No worries if you forgot too, I got you covered! My mom friend over at Crafts & Coffee Cafe . Have some posts on her blog of fun Earth day ๐ŸŒŽ activities that you can do with your preschool/ elementary age child(ren).

Today we decided to create a “green house” using plastic zip block baggies. On her blog she has a FREE printable for you to use as your green house. Unfortunately my printer didn’t want to work with me so we had to improvised.

Tripp was really excited to show off his green house. ๐Ÿ˜Š

We have been doing a lot of planting seeds lately. Tripp like most toddlers likes to throw a bunch of seeds in one small tiny hole and then tries to eat them ๐Ÿ˜ฌ), however this is a great learning experience for him.

Sometimes as homeschool parents we get so involved in just doing math and reading ๐Ÿ“š we forget about the fun science experiences that our chid(ren) would enjoy.

I hope y’all are getting outside today and enjoying this beautiful day. Plants some seeds and watch them grow!



Spring 2020 Urban Homestead Garden Tour

I expended this part of the garden last year and I planted my herbs in this raised bed.

Hey friends! Today I’m hoping on here to share my backyard garden with y’all ๐Ÿค—. Spring is such a beautiful time for new beginnings even when we are dealing with a virus. In my garden tour I discussed my future plans for my garden. I hope y’all enjoy it.

I have fallen in love with eating kale from my garden. This variety of “curly kale” is perfect for people who don’t have a lot of space.

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog once again. If you are growing a garden this year let me know in the comments what are you growing in your garden.

I planted this kale last year in the fall and it is still going strong.
