Well farm girls,, here we are,, 2018... with so many wonderful ideas for celebrating 2018..

How about celebrating by honoring our garden pollinators...
bees, butterflies, humming birds, bats and so many others.

I think I will make a garden pollinator themed apron...

and,,, I think I will challenge myself to grow something new, that I have never planted before in my garden.. like Hops...

How will you celebrate your Farm Girl celebration 2018???

Grace, you are so thoughtful and sweet. Thank you for the mini quilt you made for me, I love it. I think it will be a perfect coaster for my cup of tea,made from the tea at you also sent. I have missed hearing from you. After Jubilee is over we can have an email chat.

Let God's light shine through you every day.

For Jubilee, I will find materials for native bee houses, bat houses, frog and lizard habitats and butterfly/bee watering stations. I will get at least two things constructed for my garden.

I started a spring/summer garden from seeds. I use heirloom seeds. We have a screen room and I put them in there for now. Once, they get some growth going I will post the pictures for you to see. I am also making a few new things for my Etsy shop in a vintage garden theme. Stay tuned. For my personal fun I started a vintage hankie quilt last year. I am embroidering each block. So, it's taking me some time to complete. Once, I do I'll show it off.

Dianna,,, I will have to try the Grits... to rid our ants.. I do use peppermint EO in the house along the baseboard and window siles to keep ants out (aprox 15 =?- drops of peppermint oil, diluted with distilled water, put in a spray bottle)
I have been taking B12 for 2 months now,, had no idea it could ward of pesty bitting bugs..

WooHoo, wonderful garden activities for our Farmgirl Jubilee celebration this year!! I am loving all the flag ideas and yard blooms shared.

Dianna, I tried raising Mason bees here in Florida . Mine hatched, flew out of the house and then never came back!!! I was so disappointed. A Farmgirl from Kentucky, who lives on a farm ,grows them easily so I am thinking my city location was not where the bees wanted to be. Even with the proper type of Mason bees for my area and a spiffy mason bee abode, they didn't stay here. But hopefully, they did some pollinating which helped flowering plants here in our area. Bees are the BEST!!

Happy Farmgirl Weekend everyone!! And a big shout out to our local Bees today for stopping by our homes as they do their important work.

It is a Bee Happy Day today!!

Yeah Nora! Love your bright green pollinator flag!!! I just put up my mason bee house and need to finish my two flags! One for another farmsister and then mine! i am ready to rock this celebration! ;)

Grace, have you tried pouring dried grits on the ant bed? i too have them in the garden. Whats so bad is I NEVER see them as the soil is rich black and they build in that soil so when i go to hoe I end up stepping right dab smack in the middle of them! Ouch! So I read and read how to get rid of them WITHOUT toxic chemicals and came upon the grits thing. I tried it and it ACTUALLY WORKS!!!! Know what else works?? I hated the gnats and skeeters and biting flies always pestering me as I worked. lemongrass oil helped a bit but never lasted as long as I was out there. Again, after some study and reading, i found that if you take B12 complex it tends to keep them away. Well, i started last month and sure enough they linger nearby but won't land on me! I feel empowered for sure! Not to mention a little more energized!!! lol!

Grace, I can totally relate to that experience. Whenever, we think we've found a good spot to plant turns out ants got there first. lol

I love anything to do with gardening. I am going to try again this year to grow a vegetable garden in my porch. The hot Florida sun just won't let my edible plants live. Then the bugs eat what the heat doesn't kill. As long as I keep them in the porch they thrive.

Terrific idea!

My sister and I went to the Salvation Army today and I found a new handmade bib apron with over-all butterfly print for $3. Good price and quality fabric. I will wear it this Sunday to celebrate Jubilee 2018.

Sylvia,,, hopefully your neighbor will follow through with removing those Arborvitas... or else invite over a herd of Deer to munch on them,,, I know over here on the East side of the state,, the deer will eat those bushes down to just a twig...heeheehee

The bulbs I planted last fall (daffodils and hyacinth) are up and looking lovely! Spring came late to New England this year. I finally felt comfortable stowing the snowbrushes and ice scrapers in the trunk of my car today. I should probably think about putting away my winter coat, boots, hat and mittens, too. We finally have all the windows open. The cats are ecstatic! (well, actually right now they're asleep, but they were ecstatics when we first opened the windows). I think, I really think it's finally spring in New England!

Our yard is shaded by the neighbor's arborvitae, lots of them. He offered last year to cut them down. I was ecstatic. Now he's deliberating. They're huge and I think he needs to hire it done. Meanwhile, I should be rotating my tomatoes. If I do, they won't get the sun they need. What can i do to the bed I've had them in so I don't need to rotate? Any hints or suggestions?

Here my 'starts' for my lil garden this year..

I started 6 tomatoes and 4 sweet peppers from seeds... but I bought a yellow plum tomato plant as well as chocolate mint and a Peony plant,,,

I wanted to try planting Hops,,, but just didn't have time to search for any plants. Hopefully next year!
