Wacky Wednesday

Happy Wacky Wednesday! 
 I have many WACKY things to share with you today, in no random order!
It has been a whirlwind week, starting with the Teacher's Appreciation Jackpot. My Tick Tock Measuring Time freebie was download 6,894 times!!!! I was, well still am, shocked and awed! Thank you for the sweet and encouraging comments you all left. I am so sorry there was an OOPS on page 8! Please see this post to download the corrections.
If you are a new follower, thanks for joining me on my blogging journey! I am fairly new to the blogging world and just getting my feet wet with TPT items. I would love for you to comment and tell me about yourself and if you have any products you are in need of, but have not been able to find. I am looking for some new and different things to work on the next few weeks.

On another note, my blog has been nominated for an award! Say what?!?! I'm flattered, again. Apparently, someone really liked my post on Penguins and the comments that followed. Again, say what?!?! Anyways, voting begins on May 14th. I would be thrilled if you would support my nomination!

The best part of my week (aside from all the food our PTO has been filling us up with...), I have been asked to guest blog on a great website! Stay tuned over the next few weeks to see where I end up! =)
So exciting!!!

Here's a little garden update, for those of you who were curious as to how it was going! Let me first say, I by no means have a green thumb. This vegetable garden is growing by the sheer will of prayer and lots of talking to! Yes, I have taught my kids that if they talk to the plants, they will grow. The past several days have brought us proof!
 This is a "baby corn," as the kids call it. They want to know if we should be feeding it? Uh-no, the plant does! lol...
 This is our "baby pumpkin." We discovered on Monday, that a critter had broken off and then dropped the first one over the weekend. This one quickly showed up this week.
 On Friday, we had green beans and a salad for lunch. Made straight from our garden! I did have to add in some tomatoes though. Our tomato plant is growing, but I am doubtful we will have tomatoes this year.
We used our red-romaine lettuce in the salad. Which by the way, ended up growing in the blueberry bush planter. No, we did not plant it there...this is Mother Nature at her best! That was an amazing teachable moment.


 This cucumber came from the garden as well. Next week, we will be making PICKLES. I have no idea how, yet! But we will. They asked, I said we'd make it happen. Again, prayers people! =)
 The salad.
 Here is a recent photo of our garden. Every day it amazes me how much it has grown, and how my students have grown. I think I am starting to get sad to see them go...
 Green Beans were DELISH!!!
This was the oh-so yummy cucumber! 

So that was my Wacky week! How 'bout your's?

  1. I am impressed with your bounty! You must be lucky to live in a climate warm enough to plant early!

    Here's a recipe I used last summer to make pickles for the first time. They are SO good you will never want the ones from the store again! And they are really easy, which makes them even better!

  2. Suzy Q- is this your real name?

    I ask, because my sister and I have a long running thing of telling stories and the main character is Suzy Q, always when we can;t remember who or who is not so important. Instanly made me think of her and some great laughs!
    Anywho- I planted in the middle of March because my grant money came in late, then we kept getting 2 day cold snaps whenever I planned to plant. So, we were a little late this year. I am amazed every day that we have been able to grow anything at all. =)
    I am printing out the recipe as we speak! Thanks so much for sharing and thanks for visiting!
