Last year I tried to grow tomatoes...in the Topsy Turvy....however a mama bird made a nest and laid and hatched eggs in it. There was NO way I was going to move her and her babies out...so no tomatoes. We did grow some peppers and herbs last year...and I didn't kill anything or anyone so I called it productive.
This year I've planted more herbs - cilantro, basil, thyme, oregano and so on. And a butterfly garden and Snow White carpet in some pots and two teenie pots for my youngest daughter to grow flowers. We spent a couple weekends outside and planted, raked, bagged, painted our patio table and just enjoyed the weather.
I would like to get a little braver and grow something more substantial....and I say that every year. I would LOVE to have my mother in law's green thumb! But that's just wishful thinking!
I know....sounds gay, huh? Too bad. Suck it. That's how we roll!
Seriously folks, my husband and I will be married 5 years on April 14th of this year. And we met 2 weeks prior to that wedding date...which made Friday, April 1st, our 5 year first date anniversary. It's kind of hard to forget an anniversary that takes place on April Fool's Day!
I have a gift for our wedding anniversary - wood for the 5th year. Real wood...not a woody...I can give him that anytime. But for the First Date....hmmmm. Chocolate....
Well, we didn't celebrate it by going out...since he works so much....I decided to make him a treat to see when he got home from work.
Melt Hershey's Chocolate in a double boiler
