SFR Goodness. Grab it before the deal ends! I'm heads down at the moment, on a vicious deadline, so I haven't done anything but sleep for a few days.  But I have garlic going crazy on the shelf by the window! This is before and after   Those were taken 7 days apart! Hope everyone

Bloomin’ Deals You Don’t Want to Miss!

Bloomin' Deals You Don't Want to Miss! I'm growing things! We're desperately trying to conserve cash at the moment, but now is the time to get going in the garden (for us northerners.
