serene sundays...

Sundays are a time for sleeping in, having late, long and wholesome breakfasts, sipping tea, reading the paper, planning the meals for the week, trips to the market, mending, cleaning, reorganizing, recharging, spending time with family and friends, reading books, playing in parks, taking naps in the sun, baking bread or any of the above in combination.
In light of this, I will categorize my Sunday entries as “serene sundays” and put up photos that describe my mood, thoughts, ideas, inspiration or general weekend goings-on, instead of writing an entire entry.

We've had a reasonably quiet weekend- keeping fluids up, getting some extra rest and trying to kick this cold once and for good. My poor little bubba has had a low-grade fever for a couple days now, but he seems to be on the mend and his cough has improved dramatically- must have been my immune boosting soup and homemade cough syrup; ).

We did find a little time for a beach walk before the water gets too cold for our toes.

In other news my seeds have almost all sprouted and I am now trying to figure out when I should put them in the fertilized garden. I know seed planting soil is low in nutrients so I don't want to starve the little guys, but I also don't want to disturb them too much until they're strong enough. Any planting professionals out there with some advice?

Hope you all had a peaceful weekend filled with love and light.

I follow the Astrological and Moon Planting Guide, it is a calendar poster that I bought from the local health food store. It has days marked that are best for planting, transplanting, weeding, pruning, etc according to the Moon and it's position!! You are guaranteed high success if you follow the moon phases!! Good luck!!

I've just found your wonderful blog. Have been looking around and really appreciate the time you take to post so much great info. Warms the heart of a mama who's an "imperfect shade of green" ;)

Such gorgeous photos!

If your seedlings start to look long and spindly, time to harden them off before planting them out. You could always do trial and (hopefully not) error. Plant some out, and leave some a bit longer... also a good way to do successive planting! (Or put some into bigger pots perhaps?)

Good luck... you can always ask your Newbie Gardening questions here:
