My Brother In Law's Garden
I went to my brother in law's on Sunday so that he could help me with a fun wedding project that I am going to share later with you all! (So excited) anyway he took me on a tour of his garden and WOW! I would love to grow things like he does. Peppers ... He makes the best hot chili powder
This is a bell pepper and he said that the taste was out of this world! My father makes the best stuffed bell peppers and I can only imagine what they would taste like with home grown peppers!
This large green leafy bush on the right is a pea plant and he said that it hasn't grown peas yet. I said did it pass its season and he said it's only a six weeks old!.... WHAT??? peas on steroids! amazing but as we walked around we found some flowers
I took this picture of my brother in law standing behind his tomato plant... Yes Standing! The arrow is pointing to his hat so that you can see how tall they are. They are covered with tomatoes
Here is a closer picture but it does not show just how many tomatoes there are. He is a master gardener in my book!
So I was reading a blog by Then she made and found this really cool way to make a soup storage can holder so I thought that I would try it myself so I start with a box like this then I cut the end off of my box because my pantry doors would not close because the box was too long then I taped the end I just cut off back to the place i just cut it off of but I tucked in the ends then I cut half way down the place I just taped to make a hole that I can pull the cans from when I need one Here is the finished end of one side next on the opposite side I cut a hole in the top so that I can add new cans to the back as I buy them that way I always use the oldest first next I took scrapbook paper and covered the box
I used this spray adhesive only because I love it! rubber cement will work just fine or what ever glue you wish
and here is my finished product! Woo Hoo I did this in only one hour! not bad I am quite happy with it. see how it works.....cans in back and pull out the front
Magically hanging leaf... just kidding, can you see the spider web?
Love this picture because it captures many things
A unique truck
Inside my environment while working
A gander of what's behind me
A moment in my life recorded :-)

The beauty my eyes behold... Grateful for sight
A childhood treat I shockinly found still in production. If you find one give it a go
Trees all over the Sierra Mountain Range fruiting this year
I NEVER! Get tired of these special notes left for me to find.
A secret re-construction of my fathers trailer! He was pleasantly surprised
It only took a little bit of Paint, new wood, some soldering, new reflectors, new electrical wiring, new studs, new tires and a weeks worth of labor, Phew.... Well worth it for the best father around
The startling white of this Hibiscus flower, gorgeous
The last bit of snow left on Mount Rose
More evening thunder, lightening and rain... My fav time of year
