I believe I mentioned about Sand Mountain Herbs in my last post, but I will continue to mention them. I ordered some seeds and hope they will be delivered this week. I'll keep you 'posted' on that as well. Things have been going really fast lately; I can't seem to keep up with all the chores! My house is a wreck and unless it rains today, will continue to need vacuuming and mopping. I do try to keep up with the laundry, however. Funny how we do the things we like best! Dishes, not so much! I thought about canning some more baked beans, but it has gotten too late in the day for that, so I'll save that for another hot or rainy afternoon. We usually get a lot of showers in the Spring, so I'll have plenty of chances to get caught up on all of this. I just need to get the raised beds prepared so I can plant squash, cucumbers, green beans, etc. The tomato and pepper plants I started from seed need to go out as well. I hope to post again this week so stay tuned! Blessings from Bama! (I think the link worked below. Check it out!)
