Friday Quick Takes (vol.29)

March 24, 2017 by Sarah

I was so excited to come back from a trip and find my seedlings alive and bigger, thanks to my kind neighbor! This and other quick takes on the blog today. Link in profile. #garden #gardening #seeds #growyourown #growyourownfood #organicgardening #kitchengarden #growsomethinggreen #thehappygardeninglife #urbangardenersrepublic

one. I somehow managed to start seeds indoors about a month ago, and here they are! Alive and well. We have brandywine tomatoes, sungold cherry tomatoes (my favorite), basil, kale, eggplant, and zinnia and borage flowers to attract good bugs to the garden. We also started another round this week of 3 kinds of cucumbers, marigolds, and cosmos.

two. A few blogs I follow did skincare posts recently! Check them out here, and here.

three. I’ve been loving being part of a book club, in the last few months I’ve gotten to read books I would have never otherwise picked up. Last month I finished Ready Play One and I’m currently reading Exit West. Both got me hooked.

Every year when the trees start blossoming, I'm reminded why spring is my favorite season. #spring #blossom

four. Every year when the trees start blossoming, I am reminded why spring is my favorite season. Trying to take it all in and savor it.

five. We’re in the season of Lent in the church calendar right now. I’ve been reading this Lenten devotional right now when I remember, it’s out of stock but it’s great so keep it in mind for future years if you’re interested!

I’ve also been enjoying the Friday meat fast and like past years, have been experimenting more with seafood dishes. This has been a go-to favorite, this is a new hit, and I’m making this tonight.
