Garden time!

(galaxy watermelons)
Well, actually, garden time was like 4 months ago for us SoCal-ians. And believe me, I was there with trowel in hard, armed with packets of seeds and a mountain of determination. I'm an amature gardener, fueled by flickr pictures from the much more experienced. But, I try very hard and, this year, have succeeded. Earlier in the season, I had sugar snap peas coming out of my ears, carrots galore and beets! (I love beets!!) Now I have tomatoes, kale, broccoli, some carrots (still) and onion.

TODAY I bought some more seeds (carrots, cummin, and galaxy watermelon) and am so stoked to germinate and grow! I'm out there everyday, weeding, tending and watering. I love having soil caked on my hands, under my nails and all over my feet. And I LOVE walking out my backdoor to go grab a snack (which should be fuel enough to grow your own).

Here's where I get my seeds:

The Bear Foot Shaman

Cubits Organics

Both are awesome, independent seed people who really are excellent. So support organic, GMO-free independent growers, seed distributers and gardeners. I'm super passionate about growing and love it so much.
If anyone has any questions about gardening, feel free to ask, I love to help!!!

I swear I'm not lazy

Your grandma's board bag. Except I made it, so it's cooler

The Bag (of blankets)

But in reality I am. Hence the lack of technology bummer post earlier today. Then I swear I did something. I got off my bootybutt and grabbed an ice coffee at the Pannikin, and after a brief chat with some friends and a clumsy lemon bar muching while driving my truck, I hauled my boots up to Oceanside to the Vetrans thrift store. I've been mulling the idea of making board bags out of recycled crochet'd blankets for a while now (and don't go taking my idea, becuase that makes you a crappy human) but have been too busy/ lazy to get around to it. But I did it today!!! I scored about $30 buck worth of blankets, which equals 15 blankets. They are all crazy and awesome and very very vintage. I had a go at one and made a grandma board bag for my magic fish...

IT IS AMAZING. like it worked out really really well.. Which also means all of you out there in trendy retro surf landia better scrape your pennies together and start headin over to my ETSY shop in the next few day, cuz these bad boys be goin on SALLLEEEE. No really. you all should get really really excited to see what's coming out of the Habit 3 household.

Scanner broke.

All my technology fails, mostly when i need it. Like my computer at the begining of the semester, my scanner last week, my few phones I went through this year. Luckyl, we are super luck and the universe lets up find used, reliable stuff once in a while.

Also, my boys have been gone this week. I miss them a lot. other than that, not much news.
I have a bunch of comics to show off, but with the scanner down, boohoo.
