Starting from Scraps

 So this is in line with my current interests... Skillshare has a course on repeating designs and Spoonflower is hosting a giveaway! Worlds collide. Hell yeah, I'll put my name in the hat! You should enter too! 

On the slower project front, I started a garden from scrap... Literally! A post in Eddy & Rambo's Bunny Blog inspired this. I didn't realize how easy it would be or how fast it'd all come together. The basil and parsley I started from seeds but are thriving! With some tips from Ma, I learned how to pinch back the basil to get an even fuller plant. (The bunnies and I will have to share the basil!!!)

This one is by far the coolest. I save the bottom 2 inches of a Romaine Lettuce heart and soaked it in water. It's been about 2 weeks and look!!! I have a teenie tiny chunk of lettuce! Given the success I've had with it, I started soaking two more stumps. Can't wait til their ready for transplant. And the carrot tops just sprouted back yesterday! I think it's only been 3 days. So cool! The bunnies and I can't wait for the harvest.
