Harvesting season has approached and our garden is in full swing. This normally begins 2-3 weeks after the first bloom, but I've also found it really depends on how you like your food to taste.
I'm going to share some of my harvesting tips that may be helpful as you begin to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
I love zucchini because you can prepare it many different ways. This wonderful vegetable grows fast so it's important to keep an eye on new sprouts especially if it has rained.

I've teamed up with some fellow Texas bloggers to celebrate a little Hoffman Sweet Tea Challenge hosted by KariAnne at Thistlewood Farms.
I had the pleasure of meeting her last month at a blog retreat and what a neat lady. She has such a vibrant personality and truly loves what she's doing.
KariAnne sent each of us home with these neat fabric swatches from two of her fabric lines and today's challenge is all about Sweet Tea.
I couldn't wait to use them so last month I made a couple projects in addition to this challenge, Summer Clay pots with beads and a Unique Welcome Sign. That sign project actually goes with today's challenge.
This project is so easy and can be implemented with just about any type of container so don't worry if you don't have a chicken feeder lying around.
- One Hoffman Sweet Tea Pack
- Craft glue
Make sure the container you choose is clean on the outside; this will allow fabric application a breeze. I created my project outside because this chicken feeder was already planted.
I used all the blue swatches in this pack by adding glue dots on the dull side of each piece. After that I added each one placed on top of the other in the shape of a triangle.
Repeat the process until you make it all the way around the container.
Once the swatches are added just add a little ribbon, tie it off in a bow and you're done!
I placed this planter on my recent bench makeover right next to last month's Welcome Sign. This entry is looking pretty spiffy.
Keep reading because I want to invite you to check out what my Texas blog friends created. We have some talented ladies in this Challenge.
Thank you for Joining our Sweet Tea Challenge!

Finding the right quail coop sometimes depends on the available space and breed of quail you want.
This coop is great for those interested in raising quail on a small scale in their backyard or homestead.
It's also perfect for smaller quail like the coturnix because they prefer a more structured confined environment.
