Little Bits: Weddings & Weeds

9:17 AM


Wedding projects, & gardens, & cats-oh my! Want to know the secret to growing an amazing vegetable/herb garden? Plant items, water-log them by forgetting to turn off the sprinkler, and pulling weeds? Pssh! Over-rated. Seriously though, Kyle and I have been so busy with life that we have been the worst gardeners ever. We have Jurassic Park sized weeds growing on the outside of our fence, and I am pretty sure that the neighbors think we are some sort-of white-trash hippies. Never fear, cleaning up the yard, again, is on the list for this weekend, so hopefully we can regain our image of the awesome young couple who just happen to grow corn in their yard. Yes, we’ve got summer squash, beans, peas, tomatoes, dill, basil, kale, mint, orange mint, medium-hot peppers, and corn is on it’s way. We only killed a few of the flowers, including my pretty sunflowers, but all the shade plants are still alive and well. We even have some grass on our lawn, which is more than what most people in the Midwest have at the moment.

Anyway, here are some Instagram pics to show you a little bit of my life this past week.




1)Wedding shower invites, handwritten & stamped, with owls. 2) Barry-kittens, being adorable. 3)Our engagement photos, all pretty and on a disk for us 4)Mojito's made with the mint we grew in our yard. 5)HULK FOOD-Green smoothie, made with kale & orange mint we grew, yum.

  1. My yard is horrible too! I pulled some weeds on Saturday before I met up with you but still have so much to do.

    You water your grass!? I watered for the first time in about 3 years on Saturday and I will probably forget to water again for another 3 years.

    I love that you're growing veggies and herbs.

  6. Haha so silly. Since I live in company housing we have landscapers that maintain everything and plant all the perfect flowers and clean around when it starts to look messy. I asked if I could plant a garden and instead they planted one for me. Its awesome. There is no way I'd look like a white trash hippie haha but then again i'm Mexican so I think thats kind of impossible.
