Summer Gardening: Easier than you think!

Hello everyone,

Ah, progress. There is no better feeling than making progress on a project that takes your time, energy and true dedication. In February, I planted 100 little seedlings. I didn’t think there was any chance that anything would come of them—I don’t have a very green thumb. Summer gardening has never been my forté.

But I was wrong. Very wrong. Two heating pads, many sprinklings of warm water, and few months later, and my basement and yard are filled with baby plants! I did learn one lesson. Don’t plant too early! I sowed some seeds a few weeks prematurely so I had to pot my squash/ zucchini outside before my garden beds were ready. Otherwise, everything is going according to schedule (or at least so says my coworker and the Farmers Almanac).

How to Use Garlic Scapes

Hello friends,

First HomeI bought my first home last summer. It just so happens that the folks who owned the home before me were avid gardeners so I inherited three raised garden beds. One day I got the bright idea to dive right into gardening. No, “let’s take it easy this year.” No, “let’s just start with tomato plants.” No. I went from zero to sixty.

I hopped online and purchased heirloom organic vegetable seeds, seed starter kits, heat mats, shelving, lights, and created a full on grow area in my basement. It looks like I am a doomsday prepper. Surprisingly, most of my seedlings are doing fairly well, and I’m not entirely overwhelmed yet. But I can feel it coming.

One of the easier things I’ve started to grow indoors is garlic. I simply purchased organic garlic and split the large bulb into pieces. Then I planted the individual garlic cloves point up in 6″ of soil, watered it, and covered the containers in plastic wrap. Who knew it could be so easy to grow?

April Savings: Banza Chick Pea Pasta, Earth Balance, Arrowhead Mills & More!

Hello everyone,

Who’s ready for weekend shopping savings? I scoured the internet and compiled the newest high value savings and rare rebates on vegan-friendly items below.

Additionally, I decided to periodically begin checking for gimmick free samples to share with you. Today you’re in luck, as there are a handful of  high value samples available. Allergies got you down? Breathe easier by requesting a free Breathe Right strips sample. In the mood for tea time? How about sending well wishes to a friend so they receive two free Yogi tea packets! My favorite is the Kava Stress Relief tea! Oddly enough, I just really like the flavor. Need a new sweetener? Try the new Splenda Naturals Stevia Sweetener. Not a fan of Splenda? Try Truvia’s new natural sweetener.

Also, I know I’m late to party on savings-related browser extensions, but I recently began using Honey. It is hands down my new favorite plug in. I was amazed that it even let me know when items in my Amazon shopping cart were available for less from other sellers (with shipping). How cool is that? I am noticing that Honey and Ebates compete. If you select a rebate from one, you cannot double dip by using the other. However, you can check the rebate offer through each vendor and simply use the one with the highest return. It takes minimal efforts and the increased percentage points will add up!

Last but certainly not least, Cost Plus World Market is running a deal over the weekend for 15% off + free shipping on $100+ with code SUNNYDAYS. I know I’ll be heading to my local store for some “world” cuisine and to pick up some sumac spice.

Happy shopping & eating!
