All week I’ve been tied to my computer working on a couple of new courses I’m preparing to launch and planning my late summer garden harvest. Since we all need less screen time, I’m devoting this week’s Weekend Links to gardening and the great outdoors. Enjoy!
Maybe it’s me but I hate using Pinterest on my computer. I prefer to pin while I’m lounging in my pajamas with my dog on my lap and a coffee in my hand. I used to think that scheduling pins meant I had to be tied to the keyboard but that’s not true at all. In fact, it’s incredibly easy to schedule pins using the Pinterest mobile app. Now, I can schedule hundreds of pins in the time it takes to get through an episode of Big Bang Theory!
One of my favorite places in Charleston, WV is Capitol Market. It’s a fantastic local market featuring coffee, wine, jams, soaps, sauces, and other items from local farmers. It’s amazing! Check out what I love about it and some of my favorite pics of the place.
Life is too short to read bad books but it’s also too short to not appreciate the really great books when you find them. These 12 books are some of the books I find myself going back to read over and over again. Check them out and tell me your favorites!
One of the first things I learned about gardening is to plan ahead and always know what is coming up on your planting schedule. I’m currently working on planning late summer / early Fall. If you live in hardiness zone 6b (like I do), here are a few suggestions about what to plant in July. This list isn’t final, but it does include my favorites. BONUS: There’s a fun quiz at the end of it for you! Check it out and be sure to let me know your results.
Brandon and I are savory snackers so this popcorn is a great alternative to the sweet caramel or chocolate popcorn recipes that are popular on Pinterest. It takes less than 5 minutes and it’s so good! Grab the recipe here and whip it up for your next movie night.
