Redo and rambling

Sometimes, fairly regularly actually, I get this feeling like I wanna redo my life. I am going to save money, get rid of stuff, eat different, change old habits, etc... I have been feeling like that recently and actually have been doing some of those things. Because of this, it felt so good last night to go home and rip out almost all of my dying plants in my "garden". I cleaned up, repotted some plants, planted some lettuce seeds. I kept the large kale plant I have and some of my snow peas. I have been getting herb plants at the farmers market regularly and am looking forward to getting lots of basil this year. Next trip I am going to get a summer savory.

Speaking of gardens, my mother has this sign in her garden:

It says "Flowers are Nature's Jewels". She has all kinds of signs around the house with this kind of folksy wisdom. You know the type. This one cracks me up though. I mean aren't jewels nature's jewels? It isn't like they are man made! Ha!
Have you ever noticed the plants and edibles section of Etsy? It is always so tempting to me, the idea of getting plants and homemade cookies in the mail. But, then there is this other part that isn't as appealing about it. In fact kind of weird. Have any of you done it?

Hello. :) I have seen the baked goods at etsy, and they look scrumptious, but I'm not entirely sure I would go for it yet. Maybe one day! :)

Hi! Nice to meet you. I know it is appealing and unappealing at the same time!
