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 son Dylan has been a great little helper in our patio garden ever since we first started it last spring. So when he suggested we should add a bird house to it I was was definitely on board with his project. My suggestion was to make it out of something we could recycle and to use a juice carton as the base and to try and make it look like a traditional wood bird house. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures on the step by step process but I’m going to explain it as best as possible.
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.
