News About Us

Oregon Pink Fuschia with me in backgroundWe realize the posts to this blog have been very sparse the past few months. We have been busy with each of our jobs, we have spent a lot of our time commuting, and we have been busy taking care of our houseplants and our pets.

A few weeks ago Annah found out that she will need to be finding a new place to teach next year and so that means that both of us will have to move and we will be looking for new jobs. Therefore, since we will be moving and since that is hard on plants, it hasn't really made any sense for us to purchase any new plants.

Additionally, we have both been working on being frugal and spending our money wisely, and buying a bunch of plants right now is not something we will be actively doing. With regards to being frugal and such, I have also spent a little bit of my time working on a new blog related to being frugal and saving money which you can see at Frugal Goodies.

I had also hoped for us to grow a garden of our own this year so that we would not have to rely on my parent's garden for our fruits and vegetables this fall, but we will have to wait until next year for that. We might still try to grow some cool season crops before we move, but that is yet to be determined.

As a result of needing to move in a few months the updates will probably not be as frequent, but we will still be updating this blog when we can.

Library Plant

Posted by Jordan | Sunday, March 01, 2009 | , , | 2 comments »

This is a quick post from our most recent trip to the local library where we sat by some sort of palm which is growing out of the pot. I wonder if they realize that they need to get a bigger pot before it ends up on the floor or on somebody reading their library book!

Look for a more thorough update about our plants soon.
