This is how mine started - with a perfect little mess. I am in Victory Garden mode because of all that is going on and the Covid-time grocery prices. So, growing as much of our own food as possible during these times seems like a good idea - save money and keep myself busy. Since I refuse to go to a store unless I absolutely have to, I am planting seeds in every little container I can find around the house. These little cucumbers were in a piece of heavy packing material that my instant pot was nestled in. My husband pointed out it was just like a big peat pot and I agreed but obviously we were both wrong... As I moved it to a different position to catch more sun, I found out that when the plants were watered this very firm cardboard like material has the strength and consistency of a wet tissue. So, what is a Victory Garden? The term goes back to World War II when citizens were encouraged to grow a garden to ease the effects of food rationing. After my first grocery shop
I have lots of posts on embroidery, needlework and crazy quilting. Right now, in the time of Covid pandemic, my interests have turned to living frugally, gardening, cooking, etc. A regular Suzie Homemaker!
