Hi, I’m Becky

For the last 5 years we have lived in our fixer upper home. We’ve done little projects here and there but now we are getting to the good stuff. I’ve always loved interior decorating and had a vision of the potential our house had lying in store.

I hope you follow along with our everyday life and feel inspired to create a space you love no matter where you are.

Seeds 2017

Seeds 2017

Christmas #2 came to our house. Or it least it feels like that when I get my seeds in the mail!!

Since there is not much happening in the garden right now, I am carefully planning the garden- seed starting times, transplant dates, and planting dates.

Here are the seeds that I ordered for this year.

Some of these varieties I have planted before and I'm restocking, others are new to me. I save a few of my seeds, but not too many- someday I will do better at that!

Here is the list of what I'm growing this year (although they may be subject to change a bit!!) from seed or root:

All varieties are from Bakers Creek unless otherwise noted. Also all are open pollinated except the fennel.
