Becoming an Urban Homesteader #5 : This Week's Happenings in my Little Suburban Homestead ....

Amarillys is getting ready to bloom
First cutting of pea sprouts & celery is growing
Pea sprouts went into a fresh salad
Orchid has been blooming since Christmas
Fresh snow .... We've had more snow this month than all winter

Planted more peas for sprouts
Sunflower sprouts
Quinoa, brocholi and alfapha sprouts
Big ivy plant got a hair cut.  Clippings are in water rooting to start another plant.  The spider mites have made a home on the ivy - and struggling to keep them at bay.

Knitting / crochet projects... hmmm.... sorry can't share all just yet .... don't want to spoil the surprise(s)!   BUT, this is harder than I thought .... soooo hard.  LOL..stay tuned my friends !


  1. Now I"m curious about the knitting project ;) :) :) The amaryllis will be gorgeous once it's in full bloom...and that orchid, wow, it's such a beautiful color :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  2. So inspired by this post Janet! Thank you.
