Gonna start gardening!

We tried this last year, and we did get zuchinni, one ear of corn, and tomatoes. We planted watermelon, carrots, and I don't remember what else. Needless to say, we over planted. My hubby and boys made a small garden in the back yard. It is a perfect size for us. So, this year, we aren't going to over plant. And, I think I'm going to grow the tomatoes in containers instead of in the ground. I am new to this, but I'm going to give it another try. I pulled out the weeds and cleaned out the garden last weekend. It is supposed to rain this weekend, but maybe we can get some things going. I know most of my "farmer" friends have already started seedlings in the house. Maybe we will do that this weekend. So, if all goes well, we will have some fresh veggies of our own!
Here is a great site that I found. This guy is very inspirational to us without a lot of space for gardening:

Organized Clutter

A friend of mine said she was getting organized and her husband referred to it as "organized clutter". I love it! I can't seem to get rid of any of our clutter. I try and try. Below is an example. I cleaned off one of our bookcases...So many more to go. I think if we didn't have the shelves, we wouldn't have so much stuff. But, I think I would find somewhere to stack stuff! So, after cleaning off this shelf, I have a bag of stuffed animals and a box of books to donate. I took the before picture after cleaning off the bottom two shelves. I am going to try to clean out one area a day. This is my one for today! I made this resolution about a month ago. I cleaned out the kitchen counters....Yes, I had to clean them out. And, we tackled the living room closet. I took 2 bags of shoes to donate!



Does it even look any better?!
