“Is it that look in your eyes…or is it the dancing Jews!!!!” Undoubtedly one of the most clever marriage proposals ever. SO CUTE! xo
Planting Schedule: (noun) 1. An annoying, but essential step in planning your garden. Providing most adults with an excellent excuse to continue hemorrhaging money on tasteless, overpriced produce at the grocery store.
Today, (thank you Pinterest) I happened across SproutRobot.com, which provides a great resource for those of us who are new to gardening/and or a tad ADD. Perhaps there are other similar sites, however, being a sustainable agriculture virgin I have not been privy. Regardless, SproutRobot user-friendly, efficient and downright cute (graphically speaking). Simply type in your zip code and out spits an interactive calendar with instructions for when to plant (by week) and how to sow the seeds correctly (pot and bed options). They will even send you seeds, which is great if you live in the Middle-of-Nowhere, USA. IMHO, if you have the option to buy local, do so! Cultivating community ties and new friends who can assist during those “oh-crap!everything is dying” moments is as essential to enjoying the process as yummy veggies.
That said, kudos to SproutRobot for designing and implementing an excellent site that breaks down another barrier-to-entry for anyone who wants to grow there own food!
Pink Hair Chalk!!!! I was so psyched to try this for the first time and for the most part wasn’t dissapointed. My freind, Steph, bought a 15 color pack of regular artists pastels from Michaels (NOT the oil based type unless you want pink hair for a hot minute). Basically we just wet our hair and dragged the chalk through it and then let it dry and sealed the color (kind of) with a flat iron. A couple of tips for the weary….1. It takes a while to dry so make sure you have plenty of time before you have to put on clothes (messy) or brush it (or it will all come right out all over your bathroom sink). 2. The chalk is fairly fragile if you continue to rub the same spot, namely the middle, and will break. Make sure you use the whole piece of chalk to avoid a crumbly pain in the arse mess. 3. This totally dried out both of our hair and I’m not sure how to remdy this. Perhaps, straigtening with serum first or just having really good products to tame the frizz! If anybody knows the answer to number three, please feel free to share! Overall, fun way to have crazy hair without the oh shit moment on Monday morning…think I will try blue next!
