The Roots of my life go back as far as my Great Grandfather.  Gardening is a gene that has been passed down in my family from generation to generation.  It serves as a metaphor for life.  Deep strong roots keep you firmly grounded in tradition, passion and happiness!

For years, I have served as a helpful role to those seeking inspiration, help, or advice. In 2020,  I finally decided to own that role and be intentional about it. I started writing about my passions, my thoughts, and curious wonderings about our society. I founded A farm girls life! with a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and it has been a wild success ever since.

Laid Back Sunday!

(Daffodils in bloom!) Hey there my friend's! Happy Sunday! I hope all of you are having a terrific day! Maybe you have travel plans for the day? Our even just church! I know a lot of churches are still closed but maybe you had a chance to listen to a service online. I really believe it's time for all our churches to be open! With the vaccine rolling out maybe that can happen! There is something about being in church and in the midst of the body of Christ! So right now I'm watching "Cloudy With Meatballs", with one of my Grandson's! My husband took the other Grandson and is making a grocery run! This afternoon hopefully we will get a chance to plant some trees and Bushes! I got Pussy Willow starts at the Garden Show. The man said to put them in water and they would root! He was right! Here is a picture!

I also have two small very healthy Blue Spruce that need to be planted! I used them in my pots on my porch at Christmas time. We have decided where to put them, we just need to get it done! Then maybe I can get my cooler weather plants in the ground! Like Cabbage, Broccoli 🥦, Brussel Sprouts ect. We have lots of clay in our soil around here so we bought some big bails of peat moss to work into or beds. One of the benefits of peat moss is that it helps to hold the moisture in the soil!

(Cabbage and Brussel Sprout starts. Citronella and Lavender starts!) In the the spring and eary summer we tend to get lots of rain. In July and August it typically gets really hot with very little rain. The soil gets compacted and peat moss helps with that also! So there you have it my friend's! I think it's going to be a pretty laid back day around here!

( We have a long drive that helps to keep our small children and animals safe from traffic. I used rooting powder to help start my Geraniums and Boxwood! I have plants sprouting in my jugs! Peony, Liatris, Holly hocks and Tansy!) Can't wait to plant them! Talk to you later! FG Farm Girl
