Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!
So, after lots and lots and lots of time spent learning how to get an e-commerce site set up, I’ve launched the website for my nursery business: http://www.kitchenbotanicals.com/
Now first of all, let me point out that I dropped my computer science major my freshman year of college, not because I wasn’t good at it but because programming is tedious and monotonous and downright infuriating at times. So what do I do now? I build web pages as a “hobby.” That’s right, I’m still going cross eyed and beating my head against my desk over computer code, but now I’m not getting paid for it…not really. Moral of the story? If you have the money to pay a web designer, do it. If you don’t have the money, and/or you’re a perfectionist with control issues, set aside a lot of time and make sure your coffee supply is well stocked.
But aside from the business side of growing things, these seedlings are growing like crazy. It’s been a while since I’ve grown any kind of English pea. Let me tell you that they grow tendrils at a very young age. They will start grabbing other seedlings without hesitation. I’ve already had to rescue my sunflower seedlings from their grasps. Crazy little buggers. On the flip side, tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants take FOREVER to grow to a decent size. Guess what everyone wants to buy. You guessed it, tomato seedlings. I’m learning a lot about supply and demand in a very short period of time. I’m also learning that it doesn’t take long to fill up a couple seed tables.
Now on to the hop…
Homestead Blog Hop will take place every Wednesday and is for all things homesteading: real food recipes, farm animals, crafts, DIY, how-to’s, gardening, anything from-scratch, natural home/health, self-sufficiency, self-reliance, natural remedies, essential oils, & more! Basically anything related to homesteading.
