Why the quiet?

by Becky Elmuccio on March 24, 2014

I just wanted to pop in and give a quick update on why it has been so quiet here as of late. I have recently begun a new job, still in social media, but my focus is on that at this time. I will be popping in from time to time with some product reviews and hopefully bringing Tuesday Greens back in the summer. But, for now, I won’t be around as much as I have in the past. I hope that all is well in your realm of the world and I look forward to sharing posts with you as the spring continues. Happy gardening everyone!


Tuesday Greens #63

Tuesday Greens - Crafty Garden Mama


Welcome to Tuesday Greens #63! The weather is perking up here in NJ and I am starting to have some ideas about what to do in the garden this year. I think our main project will be eliminating the hedges in front of the house, one by one. It’ll be time consuming, but a project that I can do in parts and be okay if it takes the course of the summer. The March to do list is short this year. All I’m really focused on is getting the bird houses cleaned out and finding a new spot for the peonies and hydrangea to be so they are not directly up against the foundation of the house. What’s on your gardening to do list this March?

Last week we had 34 posts in the linky. Some gems that I loved were Quick Mexican Eggs for Dinner (Gluten and Dairy Free) from Tessa the Domestic Diva and Read Across America: Gail Gibbons, Favorite Science Author for Kids from A Life in Balance.

Be sure to check those out. I can imagine that our little one would go crazy for the dinner recipe while we read any of Gail Gibbons’ books. What does everyone have to share this week? Link up below, visit with each other and have a great week!
