What to do with Cedar Shavings
I have some cedar shavings that came with live unpotted plants. There is really only a couple handfuls. Does anyone have any idea what I could do with it? I can't use it for chicks.

Pick a dandelion flower, dip latex onto your skin where you want a tattoo, stick a daisy flower. It keeps. An hour passed since I did it. It keeps. My…
Well, this is a new one..... a stoned squirrel
I thought the wobbly, lethargic squirrel on my porch might be rabid.... turns out he had just dug up and eaten all the prickly poppy seeds I planted yesterday!!!!

Baker Creek Festival This Weekend
My sister got tickets for Sunday, and I am super excited to get to go. I do have to remember that I have no room for major plant purchases. There are some good speakers here, it looks like. Looking forward to the tour of the greenhouse, too! The seeds that I bought back in February are doing well. First tomatoes that I…
