I wanted to share some really great spring time events that are taking place here in the Bay Area in April. The lovely Spring Time – specifically in San Jose.
I’ve started a “Keep on Growing” series here on my blog so I can keep a journal of my gardening experiences especially what has worked for me and what has not. Also some “What was I thinking?” aftermaths *lol* with some laughter along the way. I believe sharing is caring and learning how to grow my own food is definitely a passion of mine that I started to sow in the Spring of 2012.
This is my 2nd year container gardening on my patio and I am now getting ready to plan out what I want to grow this year and gather as much information as possible so that I can achieve those goals this year. Here are some events that are taking place in April that will give you that boost of Energy and Enspiration that will get you growing in no time at all.

I was browsing around Vimeo the other day on our Roku and found these Amazing videos of Music created through Nature and wanted to share them with you. Nature has a way of Enspiring people in the most interesting ways. Check them out and enjoy !

My Family and I got invited by our friend Will to go to Pedalfest in Oakland this year and at the last minute we decide to make our way out to explore what it was all about. Pedalfest is a free celebration of bikes, cycling, food, family and fun! We decided to take our son who is very much into skateboarding, biking and strolling around on his razor scooter. So we weren’t too surprised that this was by far one of his most favorite festivals that he’s been to in the Bay Area. He gave it a five star rating so coming from a 9 year old I know this is a definite favorite destination for the kiddos.
Our first stop was at the Whiskeydrome which had a 30 foot bowl like shaped drome you could ride around in. Way cool and scary at the same time but these guys knew what they were doing and it was like chewing gum and walking at the same time for them.
Dylan has officially grown his first successful carrot this season. I am so proud that he has taken such an interest in growing his own food and has joined me in this journey of figuring out how to start our own patio garden. Since day one he has been helping me figure out what we should try to grow first for spring sowing along and also with the upkeep of watering and fertilizing our plants. It has definitely been a learning experience for the both of us and we’ve had some not so successful plants die on us along the way *tears*. I am so Happy though! because we finally got the essentials together this year. We had been talking about starting a garden for a while but didn’t really take any steps towards actually making it a physical reality until we moved.
