First Signs of Life

I'm getting more and more excited as my garden starts to take off. This is the first year I am really sitting down and planning out a full garden. Wow I had no idea how many rules and restrictions there were when it came to planting things. No wonder the gardens I have planted in the past have had such limited success.lol I took the time and picked up a book all about gardening and much to my surprise still had questions. Luckily I have a great friend to help me out. She is the blogger for My Side of Life and I swear that girl must know everything she has made my head spin in circles just trying to get this garden going. I'm is awe of the fact that she has been picking fresh fruits and vegetables from her garden for nearly a year now! I hope you will take the time to head over to her Gardening Section and see what she is up to these days :O). Now of course what people really want to see PICTURES! 
Look closely :OP

Mostly cucumbers

CORN!

My plants really took off this week with small views of onions erupting through the ground outside to cucumber plants that I swear have just gone mad. So mad in fact I have been outside most of the day just trying to get through this crab grass. I am happy to announce that I am about 1/4 of the way done woohoo! My husband is hard at work building my chicken pen :O) come by tomorrow and check it out as I up date you on those little devils.
Awww why not they always love their camera time.lol

I am not much of a gardener. I can stick it in the ground, but God has to make it grow. I wish you luck!

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …
