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.

Winter Sowing

Hey there my friend's! Sorry that I haven't posted much lately. My Grandson's are keeping me hopping and we have a new Grandbaby on the way! My daughter is due in July and we hopefully will find out the sex of the baby on Monday! We finally got Gardianship of our Grandson's. It has officially gone through and the judge has signed the papers! So yeah, that's a worry off our minds For now the boys will live with us and have visitations with their Mom! Mom is still living with the abusive boyfriend! OK so what else have I been up to lately? It is March in Missouri and it is almost gardening time! If you don't know about winter sowing and you're a Gardener this is something you should learn about. You take an empty milk jug, rinse it out, then cut it almost in half leaving the back intact. Fill it with potting soil or seed starter mix and plant your seeds. There are some plants 🪴that work better than others but you can try almost anything. They usually start to sprout as temps get warmer. After you plant your seed and water, you take duct tape and tape the jug back together. Take the lid off and set it outside in a protected area where they will get lots of sun! Then set it and forget it! Literally that is it! That's all you do! You have just created a mini greenhouse! When temps warm up start keeping an eye on them, make sure they don't dry out. When the plants 🪴 are big enough and the soil is warm enough, transplant to flower bed or garden! So here are my jugs this year! I started a lot of tubers and bulbs this year. I did seed some Tansy and I let my Grandson's help me! It's a great project for kids! Right now my jugs are still on my backporch! The reason? My Daughter's new puppy! I don't trust her not to run off with my jugs! That sounds funny doesn't it! Love you all in Jesus my friends!

This is our next project! I will tell you about it in my next 📫 post!
