Adventures in Gardening-Update

This weekend has been beautiful! 80 degrees and sunny so I took advantage and got some more seeds planted. Nothing sprouting up yet from the first planting, I really hope the cold and snow didn’t harm my seeds. We shall see. I didn’t take any photos yet but I planted broccoli using a Miracle-Gro Groables…

Easy Chicken Pot Pie

This week is comfort food week apparently. Tonight I am making one of my favorite comfort meals that we make quite often: easy chicken pot pie. What you need for this easy meal is 2 cans cream of chicken soup, one 16 ounce bag of frozen mixed vegetables, a pound of chicken, and your favorite…

Quick update

So it’s snowing today. I think mother nature is a little confused. I hope my seeds and plants will be safe that I just planted. I covered them with some plastic so we will see. I got some more seeds at Dollar Tree today. 4 for $1 what?! I’m pretty excited. They are annuals so…

The perfect weekend

After our winter adventure at Potato Creek on Saturday I wasn’t quite done with adventure. So Sunday I picked up Peggy(Ellie, my mom) and we headed up to the great lake! I showed her this little spot that I had found a couple years back on my drive home from Grand Rapids. It was just…
