Pinterest is killing this blog.  All my small house ideas and finds end up there.  Sorry.
Here's my link though if you want to see all my awesome small house ideas:

My husband suggested giving this address out to family and updating it more so they can see what's going on.  I've thought of going back to my private blog for family stuff, but I have too hard of a time doing just THIS blog!  I still plan on sticking with the urban farming/small house living theme, but there will probably be more about the family.

I've been outside working in the yard in the afternoons.  In January.  It's only snowed a handful of times here in Utah (greatest snow on earth??), but I'm not complaining this year.  We have to buy new raingutters for our rental and if we can save on snow plowing that helps us a lot!  Plus, I get to be outside!!  Once it gets over 40 I just can't stay inside!!
I've joined a new local heirloom seed exchange group.  Yay!!  I'm excited to learn more about this so I can start saving my own seeds.  You know, for the zombie apocalypse.
If you're thinking of starting seeds indoors, this next week is a good time to start onions and broccoli (or other cruciferous veggies).  I have some 6 cell packs from previous plant buying, but I've been looking at other seed planting options as well.  I'm not a fan of peat pots, since they don't break down well in my experience, so I've been eyeing this newspaper pot maker

I've also seen some really fun ideas on pinterest that use milk carton tops and water bottles in the window.  Since I LOVE recycling (and free stuff!) I really want to try these.

Do you start seeds indoors?  What's your favorite thing to use?


  1. Ah, so you're on Pinterest, eh? I'll have to check it out.

    I'm just not online much with school and kids and a husband getting a PhD who has FIVE CALLINGS and a chronic illness. Sheesh.

  2. Totally Pinterest-stalking you now.
