5 Things Friday – 4/27/18

Welcome back to 5 Things Friday 4/27/18! I hope you all had a great week! Lack of Posts this Week I apologize for not getting any other posts up this week, but it has just been super duper busy here and I haven’t been feeling great on top of that, so things are getting behind.  I only have about a 1/4-1/3 of my 365 tomato and pepper transplants done and I thought I would be done by now! ACK! So that is taking up every spare moment right now. I hope you will have a look see at some of my other posts in the mean time such as Gardening with NO WEEDS, How to Use Eggshells in the Garden and How to get a Massive Potato Harvest from Pots. 🙂 New Posts Coming Up I do have 3 “how to” posts lined up, How to Can Tomato Sauce from Frozen Tomatoes, How to Transplant your Onion Seedlings and How to Transplant your Tomato Seedlings. But all three are super photo intensive and my usual photo editing site has been down as they prepare to launch a huge upgrade. I will have…

Homestead Gardening Favorite: This week, my 5 Things Friday favorite gardening thing is this Cobra Head gardening tool. It is hands down my most favorite garden tool.

Use the hook to dig your small holes for transplanting small plants. So easy to use, it is my go to tool when doing garden bed clean up. It will certainly be getting a lot of use this month as I tackle my April To Do List on the homestead. Homestead Critters Favorite…
