Weekly Garden Update :O)

My plants are just taking off! I just got inside from planting 32 pickling cucumber plants. I really hope we have some good progress with them this year. We are trying something new though, instead of growing on the ground we are trying growing UP! My husband built me a system to help ensure that they have plenty of places to cling to. I am really loving this method because I can grow twice the amount of cucumbers in probably a 10th of the space. We have had great luck in the past growing them on the ground here so I really hope they do just as well.
I hope I didn't plant them to close to the onions.lol

Which are also just going CRAZY!
and of course for added cuteness look how big she is getting!

It has been such a funny gardening week. I went from pulling crab grass and weeds out for what seemed like an eternity. To wondering where I could steal some dandelions for my garden.lol Now if  you are wondering why I want to steal  those dandelions you'll have to head over to My Side of Life to see what she is up to! I promise you it is something you will never believe!

I'm in Ontario and were way behind in growing anything as of yet but boy oh boy we've had bizarre hot summer weather for this time of year. Our rose bushes are getting leaves and usually don't till mid April end of April.

YAY nice weather.

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 …
