Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

I was pleasantly surprised on Friday when the Mr. DSL man came to my door and handed me a heavy box.. Of course.. I ran inside to see what was inside.. and I was surprised to see the Hershey Bliss FUN!! Remember my post a little back saying that I signed up to have a "house/host"party to share a companies products!! Well I got picked... and I'm happy to say.. we used all the items last night!! We had a great time!! Here's what I got inside the package!!

15 bags, magnets, pens, notepads, napkins and 9 bags of Hershey Bliss Chocolate... I have to say.. they are REALLY good!!! I'll post more pictures of what I DID with the product tomorrow.. but for now.. I'll share a before picture!

As you all know.. I'm trying to be more frugal and self sufficient.. so a friend and I are starting a garden and going to actually TIL the ground today!! I've been calling it our "Victory Garden" like they did in the 1940's.. Why not? They grew their gardens to help fight the war.. and in all honesty.. we have a war going on now as well.. It might have different angles and views... but it's not much different than it was 60 plus years ago!!

Here are a few of our seedlings already.. I am so excited!! and those of you that live close... prepare your fridges.. you WILL get some!!
Here is an overview of all that we have started!! We moved them outside yesterday to get actual sunlight!!

Here are my mixed green lettuce.. I can't WAIT to chomp into these!!!I love Spring Mix lettuce.. mmm.. let's just hope woodchucks don't like it as much as me!!

Zucchini!!! It's going WILD already!!

The tag on this one says.. Spinach "Yucky".. now come on... just because the stick writer doesn't like it.. doesn't mean he had to insult it.. ha ha ha Here is cukes and more Zucchini.. and you can see our tomatoes growing as well!!!
I can't WAIT!! We have more to plant.. root plants will be grown directly in the ground.. and potatoes as well.. and knowing us.. we'll be running to our local nursery's and buying a few things to help support them too...!! Can't wait to share more pictures of our progress!!

I really wish I had the time and energy to do a garden. It's been a few years. I actually loved our spinach the best! Not yucky at all! :)

Wendy said...

Oh...we always talk about doing a garden every year and never do it! I think this is the year though since we can't afford groceries anymore:) LOL!! Okay, well, it's actually not that funny!

The Hershey's box & veggies look so good! :) I love having a small veggie & herb garden each year. Nothing tastes better than fresh picked veggies.

I love the stuff in your goodie box! Yummy!

We're going to be planting our garden soon. I can't wait! I love growing some of my own veggies.
