A Window Garden With Food Scraps



I saw a few posts on pinterest about regrowing food.  I was a little skeptical but thought I'd give it a try. 

Our family goes through quite a bit of celery and green onion. Not that they are expensive, but it's nice to always have them on hand instead of making trips to the grocery store. Plus nothing beats fresh produce.


Green onion is very easy. Simply chop off the white root part of the plant and stick it in water. Thats it. I change out our water every few days.


This is after only a week! 
The girls think its so fun to watch them grow - so that's a bonus.
When your ready to use them, just cut off what you need and it will grow back.


This is a week of celery growth. Once it gets just a little bigger I'm going to put it in soil.


Romain was a little late to the game.
However it is showing progress. I'll give it another week and then plant it.






Lucy's Neat Ripple Crochet Blanket





I wanted to show everyone a finished Neat Ripple Blanket. I finished this one about a year ago after working for 4 months straight on it. It was a gift for my 4 year old and she loves it! It's big and soft which is why it's become our family favorite. We take it on all our camping trips and my daughter uses it on her bed every night.

I purchased the Lucy Pack for only $39 which includes 17 skeins of 322(yards) yarn. I only needed one of each color, so this pack was perfect. Although I did need to purchase extra of the colors I wanted for the border.
Once again you really can't beat the price or quality of Stylecraft yarn. These 17 colors are gorgeous and were inspired by Lucy of Attic 24 .

I made up my own border for it and can't remember what exactly I did. I'm not too thrilled with it, but it works. I do like the picot edging.




Even in a messy pile, its still beautiful!
