Favorite Things: Cleaning edition

I was going to start off by sharing a kickass diy recipe for dishwasher liquid but after trying it ( quite a few times) and failing miserably I’ll just share my favorite go to’s. Here are our criteria for buying things, 1. must be clean, meaning no toxins, chemicals, dyes etc. 2. Must be environmentally safe 3. it has to actually work, with a house full of 6, 2 legged creatures I just don’t have time!

 

Seventh Generation is where it’s at! We use dish soap, liquid dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent and paper towels (we even compost the paper towels)! The wipes are practically gold in our house!

I buy the large bottle of Mrs Myers cleaner and just got a spay bottle, this stuff smells amazing and it works for everything, counters, sinks, floors, you name it!

February Garden

Somehow February is at a close and somehow we’ve managed to have extremely warm weather. I’m desperately hoping these aren’t signs of a scorching spring and summer to come, but we’ll just have to wait and see. Here’s what going on in our garden right now. Stella and Amelie drew on our walkway and now it’s so pretty I really don’t want to walk on it!

Jake dug out the built in, we tried planting i this thing in the past, I have no idea what was in the soil but organic compost and organic soil are going in it now, this is where we’ll plant our pollinator flower mix.

Jake dug up grass, and set the new raised bed, of course Lucy had to check the handy work!

Right outside the door 4 new strawberry plants, the russian sage is coming back from winter and that gorgeous rosemary is blooming!

All the goodies are still inside, acorn squash, spaghetti squash, peas, beans, and tomatoes!
