Hello and welcome to another My Week on Wednesday where I take a few moments to share what I’ve been doing over the week. I share some of the blogs I’ve visited, and some of the things that I have learned.
We are on Spring Break here in Upstate New York, which is my excuse for not writing a Real Post this week.
We’ve been having fun, though!
Monday… 70-something so we went to the beach!
Tuesday and Wednesday… Quarter-sized snowflakes drifting through the air! No kidding. Welcome to springtime in Upstate New York! 🙂
Nevertheless, my husband is hard at work (and freezing) working on our raised beds for the front yard. Do you need some Cheap and Easy Garden Tips? Survival at Home has lots!
And if you’re looking for ways to compost check out Homespun Seasonal Living’s post on the Many Composting Methods. Many of them don’t take up a lot of room at all! You’ll be giving your plants nutrients and keeping waste out of the landfills besides! For even more information on composting, Herbal Academy of New England, has a great article on How to Compost and another on Compost Tea. Even plants like tea! 😉
(Actually, I’ve been making compost tea since I was a little girl… except I called it “soup” and made it out of leaves and bits of grass and fed it to my dolls and then left it out in the rain. I think my mom fed it to her plants, though!)
Asparagus is one of my favorite signs of spring! Check out this Braised Spring Stew — it sounds really delicious! Another favorite springtime thing is having wine, cheese, hummus, vegetables, and pita bread on the porch. I’ve never tried to make my own pita bread, but Schneider Peeps has a recipe that sounds easy and delicious!
And if you’re looking for a healthy, chocolaty treat to stick in Easter Baskets, be sure to check out these Coconut Almond Joy Bites.
Finally, just in time for Easter, the Homestead Lady has a great post about Dying Easter Eggs Naturally. She explains exactly how you would go about making natural dyes for your eggs, and some links (including one by yours truly!) on how other people did it. And some information on why you would want to use natural dyes in the first place!
Starting now, approximately daily, I post quotes on my Facebook Page. The quote with the most likes, shares, and comments will become the Quote of the Week. 🙂
For this week, though, I’ve picked an older one for your Quote of the Week:
