This picture was taken a few days ago. Shown here are tomato and squash plants. In the last few days the jalapenos have started to sprout. I also planted a few more things including more tomatoes and squash as well as kale, asparagus, and bell peppers.
I know we’re a little late on getting our garden started. We had started some seeds about a month ago and someone accidentally killed the plants. Now we are starting over. I hope we have been success this time.
Have you started a garden?

It just dawned on me that today is Wordless Wednesday. It is almost impossible for me to post pictures without some sort of blurb about them. Today’s pictures are kind of interesting.
I’ve been wanting my mom’s old coupon box for a while. I meant to get it from her last summer and forgot so while I was visiting in January I made sure to get it.
I opened up the box expecting to find a bunch of expired coupons. I was quite surprised when I found these old coupons.
None of these coupons are expired. They all have “no expiration date” on them. I’m thinking of taking some of these to use at Harris Teeter and seeing what happens. I can only imagine the looks I’ll get. I know some of these products are no longer being manufactured.
As of now I can’t really decide what I’m going to do with all of the coupons but I thought you all might like to see them.
What do you think I should do with the coupons?

This week I made 52 pumpkin muffins and 5 mini loaves. I used these as gifts for the teachers at school.

Eighty cents for a very small scoop of instant mashed potatoes. This is why I bring my lunch everyday.

Today I have been canning tomatoes. Let me just say that I have not canned in years. I had just about forgotten how to can. I did some internet reading first to refresh my memory.
I still have some tomatoes jars cooking, but if I remember correctly, so far I have canned 9 pints of petite diced tomatoes and 5 pints of salsa. I enjoy eating fresh and canned foods so I hope to do more of this in the future.
Have you canned anything this year?

We purchased our home less than a year ago. During this time, we have thoroughly enjoyed watching the flowers and plants arrive during different times of the year. It seems as though when one plant becomes dormant, another blooms.
Here are a few recent pictures from my yard.
I’ve been trying to figure out the name of this one. According to some googling, it appears to be an Agastache Blue Fortune. If that is incorrect, please let me know. Thanks.
Beautiful Phlox. All of the plants and flowers in my yard are low maintenance, which is a definite plus for me!
I have always thought these were Black Eyed Susans but when I was looking on a website today, they had these listed as Redbeckia Goldsturm. Perhaps that is the proper name for them. Are these Black Eyed Susans to you?
This is a low growing creeper and looks great around the rock border. It looks like this through nearly the entire year. I would like to have more of this plant, so I would appreciate anyone helping me to identify it.

I know that this is supposed to be a Wordless Wednesday, but who can just post a picture and leave it at that? I know I can’t.
The 75% off clearance sign at Target is one of my favorite signs. When I see it, I get a bit happy inside. It’s hard to describe how it makes me feel. When I see it, I am suddenly expecting a wonderful deal. I am willing to search through racks of clothing for the children’s sizes I need.
I don’t get to visit Target as often as I used to (due to location), but I still enjoy that sign.
Do you have a Wordless Wednesday post? Feel free to link up in the comments.
