Pinneaples take several years to fruit. Mine finally have a flower coming out. Yay!
My compost box/box garden
It was doing so well it ended up being my box garden. Anything I grow in it goes wild. The Hawaiian chili pepper plant took off and I have too many for my taste buds. The Kalo is also taking root and I harvested some leaves already and made a beef stew.
(M-ala: means garden)
New Box Garden
Since my previous box garden did so well, minus the bugs, I decided one more would be great. This time I have poison for the bugs. But the way our yard is there is no flat surface. So my husband built me a beautiful rock wall from the rocks in the yard after digging out the grass and made a wall. He is great!
And since the box compost became the box garden, we decided to invest in a real compost and we love it. There is no back log of compost able material anymore. Our worms are nice and fat.
We made covers for our Primary out of Pillow cases. Will blog about that later. But for the lack of color variations at Walmart and price. It was cheaper to buy a sheet then it was to buy the pillowcase. And they were always out of the size I wanted. So I decided to buy the sheet and sew one. But then I was left with lots of material. So what should a crafty person do!?
Make a Dress!
I had bought a pattern for my daughter and could not find the right material to use. And I have been itching to sew. So this came at a perfect time. I sewed her this dress and she loves it. It was so fast and easy.
But I still have another dilemma. I still have more material! What to do?
Make a Shirt! (Am I crazy!?)
Still more material! Matching Scripture Bag! (Now I have gone crazy...)
