“Happy Gardening Good Friday and Holiday Easter Weekend~!
With all the excitement of this weekend with family, we also have to remember Animal safety for our Dogs and Cats.
If someone gives you an Easter Lily, and you have a cat we have to keep in mind that these are toxic to cats. Here is important information regarding this type of lily: http://www.pethealthnetwork.com/cat-care/dangers-easter-lilies-cats

Photo of our old Garden with Compost Tumbler:
I found this as I was searching for another way to build a compost tumbler as we left the other one we had made at our old house and frankly, I had to find this for myself as we need to build another one. This is almost exactly what we had at our other place and our garden did great there as well. They have other type compost types to build, but I preferred this one at this link below:
Here are the plans for this particular one: http://www.examiner.com/article/karen-stockton-teaches-how-to-make-a-compost-tumbler-under-30
As you can see even a trash can with holes drilled at the top can be a compost if you wanted to use something like this plan: http://simplemom.net/how-to-make-a-compost-bin/
Really Liked this one site it gives you 4 Different Compost Bins or ways to build your own compost bin. You really want to use the one that works the best for you, at least you are making an effort to be environmentally friendly by doing so and having more of a natural gardening process: Please watch all 4 of the videos to see which one of these methods may work for you the best: http://www.treehugger.com/lawn-garden/4-diy-compost-bins-you-can-build-one-day-video.html
☼Til Next Time~ƸӜƷHappy Spring!ƸӜƷ☼☼☼Something to do as we wait for the weather to warm up!
Lovely day outside today enjoyed working in the yard mowing the front grass and putting down some White Vinegar on the weeds! Besides Turning the Soil some more in the garden for preparation for the new plants. I noticed a chill in the air and surprise, we may have some snow flurries tomorrow. So folks as you know in our mid atlantic region some of the heartier plants will sustain just fine. I am still getting broccoli and have some Lettuce and Collards that are trying to come back from my winter garden. I think it is a good idea to start your seeds probably in the mid atlantic region indoors and get a little growth on them plus get over any chance of freeze before putting them in the ground. Little does my husband know it but I am setting up a long table in our garage to plant my seedlings in some good rich organic soil or compost and then make some markers out of sticks or paper. I have seen some made out of old blinds then you mark your type plant and put them in the front row of these. Keep on saving your seeds, and cross your fingers for good Spring time Weather To Fall upon us soon! I have daffodils blooming! Til Next Time~✫✫✫✫✫
This Video seems helpful to preparing in Fall but some can also apply to now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvA5W2FRwdI

Today good day to turn over the dirt and weed! Got Weeds You can also use White Vinegar in a spray bottle to kill the weeds around outside of garden bed or walk ways and it is organic instead of something that can harm the environment: http://www.agardenforthehouse.com/2011/06/got-weeds-use-vinegar-not-roundup/ Tomorrow First Day of Spring~!
