Currently I have my herbs in containers, they range in size from one gallon to 5 gallon.  I am in the process of making a raised beds just for all my herbs, and I have quite a few herbs.  I have rosemary, German thyme, lemon thyme, sweet marjoram,  oregano, pineapple sage, sage, parsley, dill, apple mint, spearmint, stevia, sweet basil, cinnamon basil,  and chocolate mint.

I still need to get chamomile, fennel and peppermint.

How useful is a toaster oven

I have had a toaster oven for a few years, I bought it after my four slice toaster died and I wanted to use it for more than just toast.  The kind I bought was a toaster oven/ rotisserie, it wasn’t the cheapest one, but it also wasn’t the most expensive one either.  Other than toast, Mexican pizza’s(made on tortilla’s with items found on pizza’s), biscuits and cheese crisps(tortilla’s baked until crispy) I had never really thought about how useful it could be, you sort of find out these things out of desperation.

My desperation came when I acciedntly broke my oven door, while baking cookies.  How does one brake a door? One breaks an oven door by not being careful.  I didn’t want to take the time to dry my hands off after washing them.

Who knew there were so many shades of ORANGE!!!!

So yesterday, I had to run an errand.  My BRIGHT ORANGE Halloween shirt, had a sleeve that had come unraveled.    Who knew there were so many shades of orange!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I stopped at walmart first, I was at one of the larger town’s near us and had forgotten that they didn’t have a fabric section, only a craft section, I didn’t want to have to drive to the next largest town with a walmart.  So I stopped at Hancock Fabrics, they were out of orange, but had spots for about 7 different shades.  So then I went to Hobby Lobby, they had three of their 10 shades left.  I decided that the one labeled Quamcaut was the closest.  I was able to fix my orange shirt and have it in time to wear to our churches Halloween party.   While I was out, I decide to stop by Home Depot and price what it would cost for a project I wanted to do would be.   I had for a while a fascination with water pond’s,  one year for my birthday, my husband got me one.  It so happened that he was doing computer work for a guy that had bought one for his wife and she ended up not liking it.  So they traded some of the cost of the computer work and the guy paid was was left over.   I had the pond set up for a while, and even had goldfish in it.  Then the pump broke and the fish disappeared( I still think it was the cat’s ), so it sat for a few year’s gathering water that I would then empty, because it looked and smelled nasty.  I kept toying in the back of my mind, with the idea of turning it into a plant container.  Well!!!!!  Yesterday I finally did it.   I went and bought potting soil, plants and I cleaned up around where I wanted it, put the pond just so, drilled holes in the bottom of the pond, for drainage.  and planted the plants.   It took 5 bags of potting soil, each bag of potting soil was 1 1/4 cubic feet worth, I had bought 10 bags as I wasn’t sure how many i needed.  I bought one of each color of Pansy, that home depot had,  then I bought ,two vinca vine ( I almost went with a ground cover called Dragons Blood. It has very pretty red foliage)  two maroon, two yellow, and two orange mum’s.     It ended up that about three inches down, I hit clay, so I had to fill the holes with water, wait while it softened, and then I could continue to dig the holes deep enough to plant.     I was really worried that, it wouldn’t come out like I wanted it to, it is the first real landscaping I have done other than adding a turn around to my driveway and planting the Gardenia that my mom gave me when I had my oldest.   Around the same time I got the Gardenia, I did plant some glads and irises that my grandmother gave me.
