So Long Summer: Did you try something new this summer? What was it?

I tried some new plants in my gardens and a couple new gardening techniques with great success. Along with trying some new settings out on my camera.

  • We went to a few new National Parks and Monuments ( Sequoia, Death Valley, Great Sand Dunes, Flourissant Fossil Beds) along with our old faves (Arches and Canyonlands.)
    We tried new places and things to do in Las Vegas.

    We also started a community garden. Grew some things that we cannot at home because the squirrels and rabbits get them.

    Trying a new craft - temari balls.

  • We tried gardening in box gardens. They worked so great!!! We did have an "upsy downsy" for the tomatoes, but we opted to transplant into our box garden. The tomatoes were huge!! Our big downfall was that we started our seeds kind of late. We do still have a month of growing before the kill. We grew green peppers, habaneros, jalapenos, poblanos, banana peppers. I started an herb garden with lemon basil, sweet basil, and parsley. It was just awesome that we can grow our own food out of wooden boxes. Not only that, I have basil all the time. Forget paying almost $3.00 for a pack of fresh basil. I can go outside and grab a few leaves.

  • New Settings on my camera.
    We made Homemade Soap. (We being DH and I)
    Learned to have a little more patients. Ha!
    Learned new ways to make my kids laugh.
    Learned that wallpaper (while pealing it) stabbing you under the fingernail HURTS!
    Didn't do anything exciting this summer .. But we did hang out at a new campsite with the inlaws. The kids swam in Lake Michigan for the first time too!!
