Easter Bucket

I made these for some little girls I know.
Quick and easy.
I used:
– 1 gallon buckets (available here at Farm & Home)
– stick on letters (available here at Farm & Home)
– window clings (from Dollar General for $1 a sheet. I used 1 1/2 sheets for these 3 buckets)
I cleaned the buckets with alcohol to remove anything from the surface but not damage the shine or leave residue. I thought about using some spray adhesive on the back of the clings so they would not come off… changed my mind. The window clings are so inexpensive they can decorate them for different seasons and occasions all by themselves.
The total cost of these was $13.85 each, with supplies left over for another project.

Keep checking back for other projects and ideas. As always if we have inspired you to make one of these cute buckets please drop me a note in the comments.

Pallet Garden

I love everything fresh from the garden….. but I hate pulling weeds.
I found all these ideas for planting using pallets. I am getting a bunch of pallets (we sell them here at Farm & Home for $3) and putting them in part of the garden. It looks so organized and maybe it will hold back the weeds some.
Yes I’m PINEREST Junkie. Here is the link to a bunch of ideas I found.
Go to the next page and CLICK on the “Pallet Garden” LINK to go to my PINTEREST Board.

I will post some pics when I get them in.
If you have used pallets or if we inspire you to put some in this year, drop me a note with some pictures.

Chicken House Fun

Chickens are so much fun to have around. (**see my One Chicken Can post)
I love just watching them. To me it is relaxing watching them run around the yard looking for bugs. Watching them go crazy when you give them some fresh watermelon.
Don’t forget the fresh eggs they so generously leave for you. One of my favorite breeds (Ameraucana) lays colored eggs.
And who doesn’t love fried chicken?
(I know a couple people, but they are crazy) From egg to skillet in as few as 5-6 weeks.(**see my Cornish Rock Broiler Blog Post)
Order your Chickens, Guineas, Ducks, Geese and Turkeys now here at Farm & Home.

I don’t think there is anything more adorable than a cute little chicken house/coop in the yard. Grow some sunflowers up the side of the pen, its not only pretty but it provides shade and seed for them. Plant some extra pole beans and peas to run right up the sides. Maybe some flowers around the base to pretty up their house.
The Chicken House pictured is available here at Farm & Home

First Day of SPRING

Spring is finally here. WOOWHO!!! (I don’t think it is an actual word so I can spell it any way I want. 🙂 ) I can’t wait for those 70 degree days to be here. I heard the Peepers out this past weekend. The days are getting warmer. It didn’t get that cold this winter so it didn’t take much. I’m ready for the flowers to start blooming.

If you have rhubarb go check it. Mine is about an inch or so tall. If you leave it covered to long it will rot clear down to the roots, a sure way to kill it.

We have our garden seed in. So come down and pick up your supplies. It’s time to get that garden going.
**Check out my other Blog Post for the planting schedule that is recommended for our area.

I am working on some fun garden ideas so keep checking back.

Planting Season Guide

It is that time of year. Time to start planning out your gardens. (Click on the picture to go to the link)
With all the rain we have had the ground will be ready to go.
I can’t wait. I can taste them now…fresh tomatoes.
What is your favorite, right out of the garden vegetable?
My mom always planted flowers throughout the garden. It not only looks pretty but serves a purpose.
Some help keep the bugs out.(Marigolds, Lavender, Basil, Peppermint) Some are edible.(Nasturtiums leaves and flowers have a peppery flavor. great in a salad)
Every year I like to add one new variety to try. Like Rainbow Carrots, they were so pretty and yummy. I want to try Cucamelons this year.
So go have some fun in the dirt and reap what you sew.
