Making Ripples

Ripple Challenge

When was the last time you 

  1. Reached out to someone in your life just to tell them thank you for making a difference?
  2. Acknowledged the beauty YOU bring to the world?  
  3. Created new ripples of good?  Smile at a stranger. Hug someone.  Donate to a cause you are passionate about.  Help a friend. Buy a meal or drink for someone.  Hold the door. Rake your neighbors leaves. The options are endless

I posted a challenge in our private group, to do one of each of these daily and create an ocean of unstoppable kindness from our tribe.  Won’t you join us?

Gardening tips for winter

Winter came quick this year!   In order to give you a head start on your garden for next year here are a few tips.

  1. When you rake up your fall leaves throw them in your garden.  Top the leaves with manure and let that begin to decompose and add organic material all winter.  When the spring comes just till it all in!
  2. Now is also a great time to send in soil samples and add any amendments your garden soil needs.  
  3. Dig in a good amount of bone meal where you will be planting your tomatoes next year if you struggle with blossom end rot. 
  4. Take some time to note what worked and what didn’t while it is still fresh in your mind.  Make notes where everything was planted so you can rotate crops next year
  5. Plant your garlic and mulch it with leaves and straw.
  6. Ask your friends what varieties they loved the best this year
  7. Order 2020 garden catalogues.

Note:  Now is also a great time to check your smoke detectors before the holiday lights start going up.  Remember it’s time to clean your chimney if you haven’t done it yet as well. 🙂
