Succulent Growth

Succulent Growth

It is interesting to see how differently the succulents grow. Some grow slowly and others quickly. Some I’ve hardly noticed them growing and all of the sudden they seem huge! This has been the most dramatic succulent growth I’ve seen though. I got this guy in the can of succulents from the Jordan Valley Home… Continue Reading

Sunburned Succulents

Sunburned Succulents

I mentioned yesterday that I had some problems with my plants sunburning in the window well. It turns out that succulents don’t like to be in the full sun for more than an hour or two when they are little (which mine are). The window well receives about 5-6 hours of full sun during the… Continue Reading

Window Well Garden Update

Window Well Garden Update

It’s been a while since I posted photos of my full window well garden. To be honest, it’s just not super photogenic from inside the room. That said, it really looks much nicer than just an empty window well! Things are growing away just nicely. I have had a few problems with a few plants… Continue Reading

Remove Rust

Remove Rust

Remember last week’s post about succulents where I linked to a post on aging a tin can? This may seem a little odd, but today’s post is the opposite: how to remove rust from metal. About 20 minutes away from my house is a cute junk store called Star Mill. It is an old mill… Continue Reading

Make a Living Frame with Succulents

Make a Living Frame with Succulents

Remember those succulent cuttings I showed you last week? Well, here is what I did with them! I decided to create a living frame. It ended up being a lot more work than I thought, but in the end it was worth it. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. Continue Reading

Succulent in a Book

Succulent in a Book

On Sunday while we were hanging out with our family, my cousin (who is 12 or 13) said she had something she wanted to show me. On the bookcase in the entryway of her house was a book with a succulent in it! She was really excited to show me and I was so excited… Continue Reading

The succulent cuttings have grown!

The succulent cuttings have grown!

I wanted to show you how much the succulent cuttings I started just two weeks ago have grown! I’m super excited they grew so quickly. They took longer the first time and I’m thinking it was because it was colder, but that is just a guess. These I will be keeping in for a few… Continue Reading

Succulent Love

Succulent Love

This past weekend my sister-in-law came to visit. She is also in love with succulents right now and came down to go to a class on them with me. She is also splitting the 100 succulent cuttings with me. The class we went to was part of the Jordan Valley Home and Garden Club and… Continue Reading

Succulent Cuttings

Succulent Cuttings

Yesterday was like Christmas for me and here is the story… A few weeks ago I ordered 100 succulent cuttings to split with my sister-in-law. When I ordered I wanted to make sure I was doing everything right so I called the shop that sells them, Daniel’s Specialty Nursery at gosucculent.com. I talked to Daniel… Continue Reading

Birdcage Planter

Birdcage Planter

In a previous post I mentioned that my window well garden was finished. I also mentioned that it would probably still be changing. Well, it changed :) I didn’t like that the birdcage blocked the view of the plants inside so I tried to find a way to change that. Continue Reading
