Papaya seedlings

I sowed some Papaya seeds on Febuary 25th from a fruit I purchased at the grocery store. I don’t like just tossing seeds. I’m always planting seeds out of fruit for the fun of It mostly. Do you like growing things from seed? I love any kind of propagation though. So far about 10 have popped through the surface. I expect more to pop up soon. With Papaya theres male and female. The females produce the fruit, so hopefully I have several females. I probably sowed close to 100 seeds co don’t need that many. I think I’ll keep 5 ladies. I’ll sell the rest at the farmers market for cheap. Here’s what they look like so far. Look closely and you can see the little green cuties!

I’ll post updates!

Much love & many blessings

Making better choices.

I’ve struggled with my weight since high school. I’ve recently started making some better choices food wise. I’ve cut out meat and have gone vegetarian. This morning I had a healthier breakfast compares to what I use to have. I has some hash browns with a runny yolk egg and avocado. Avocados are seriously my addiction! I use to have two eggs over cheesy grits with bacon and toast almost every morning. I’ve also started working out and been keeping track of my progress. I’m using a work out app and Instagram. I like using Instagram as a platform to keep myself motivated because there’s so many people who are supportive and doing the same thing you are. I don’t have a goal weight or anything. I just want to be healthy and confident in my body.

Heres a picture of my breakfast this morning.

Knit/crochet projects I’ve been working on

Here’s several projects I have in the works.

This first project is a granny square throw I’ve been working on in fall colors. I forgot how satisfying granny squares are. The blocks are 6 1/2 inches. I plan to start another one after I finish this one or one if my other throws.

I have this beanie going with two stands of yarn. I really like how the colors compliment each other.

This is a knitted pillow. I’m actually quite farther than this right now. I love the simple texture it has with the little pops of purl stitches.

Another crocheted afghan I have going on. This one is halfway done and I’m on my 3rd or 4th skein of yarn.

Shawl I have in the works. In a lovely soft pink color.

Another afghan I have going. I need to buy more yarn for this one.

An Afghan I’ve been knitting. It’s much farther than this, but I was to lazy to pull it out.

This is what I have in the works. I need to learn restraint from starting new projects. Lol!

Much love & many blessings!
