Dental Appointments and Gardening Metaphors

Life Update

This week has been one of those completely exhausting weeks. On Monday Mason started running a fever. He was cranky, but it was nothing a nap and some Tylenol couldn't fix. On Tuesday night, Rhett started running a fever too. Ibuprofen helped (He hates Tylenol because it's pink instead of orange), but juggling two sick kids while still getting Kender to his tennis camp every day was tiring.

Mason has been so sweet and snuggly! Isn't this the most precious picture ever!?

Road Trip to Salem

Last Tuesday we hit the road for a much needed vacation. We drove to Salem, Oregon to visit Ryan's sister Nicole and her family. The boys were so excited to visit their cousins - we hadn't been to see them since before I was pregnant with Mason! 


First we dropped off Sadie at the pet lodge. We love Sadie, but she can be a bit of a handful with all of her excited pittie energy so we opt to not take her on road trips. We hope to take her with us once the boys are a little older though, and hopefully she will have grown out of some of her puppy energy by then. She's 4, and it hasn't happened yet... Do pitties ever grow up?

Growing Tomatoes From Cuttings

I mentioned in this post that I've been reading about propagation and how to grow different plants from cuttings. I've been doing some experimenting, and have successfully rooted three tomato cuttings!! I was pretty excited about it so I wanted to share what worked for me. 😁 I've included an affiliate link in this post.

How To Propagate Tomatoes

You already know that you can grow tomato plants from seeds, but did you know you can clone them? When you grow a plant from a cutting, you are making a clone of the mother plant. Pretty cool eh!? The tomatoes that I grew from cuttings were sungold cherry tomatoes and roma tomatoes, and both varieties did really well.
