Missing thumb

Green thumb that is....I don't have one. Every year we purchased beautiful ferns for the front porch & although I really try to keep them healthy, sometimes they get pretty ratty looking . No green thumb, but fortunately a sweet little plant food recipe that snaps them back into shape almost overnight. I'll share in case you are 'plant care challenged' like me!
Plant Food
1 gal. tepid water add 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. Epsom salts, 1 tsp. salt peter, and 1/2 tsp. household ammonia.
Water once a month.
*I only use this on ferns, not sure if it works on other plants.
"Back to school" time is quickly approaching.
Thank you very much television/radio commercials that constantly remind me that my glorious vacation is almost over! Anyway, this is my week of 'appointments' .... all those 'once a year 'things we do ... just easier to do them all at once and while school is out. Eye exam today.
Dilation + sunshine = monster headache
Hope those new frames I selected while blind look alright.
When my vision returned to normal, I stitched out this adorable baby blanket. This is absolutely the softest blanket in the world! and they make wonderful personalized gifts.


  1. Thanks for the "recipe". I'm horrible at ferns too.

  2. That is one of the cutest baby boy blankies that I have ever seen!
