Happy Anniversary to MY Crabby Cabbie !!

Today is an extremely "special" day for Rob and I.  A year ago today we took a Step Out In Faith, after much discussion the previous weeks, and began our "Crabby Cabbie" Adventure.  A Happy Anniversary went out on the "Crabby Cabbie" Facebook page, as well as my own Facebook status, with a bit of a more personal touch, as follows:

"HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to MY "Crabby Cabbie" Rob. It has been quite the learning experience the past year, as it still continues to be.  I am very grateful for all those people in our lives who have lent us their support in this World of Small Business, and otherwise.  Thank goodness Rob and I have learned to "play nice" in the 20 years we have been together, as this has gotten us through the tough times now behind us and those still ahead .... LOVE your "not so Crabby wife"."

That day a year ago certainly marked a cornerstone in our lives.  Rob and I are looking forward to servicing Saugeen Shores and area for many years to come, with hopefully soon the South Bruce Peninsula, Wiarton and area as well (more on this at a later date).  Again, we can not express enough how much we appreciate the support we have received, and continue to receive, since we began The "Crabby Cabbie.  Thank YOU.

Finally Spring has sprung here on the Bruce Peninsula.  My on-line friend, Ann, was not having the same kind of Spring weather in her part of The World.  Ann lives on the Faroe Islands, and had posted photos to her Facebook of snow on the ground there this morning.  So sorry Ann, I certainly can imagine how you felt about having happened !!! as I had thought they were photos from earlier this year.

Along with the arrival of May 1st came a change in the Hydro Rates.  Please take note of the adjustments on the No-Peak, Mid-Peak and Peak rates by *clicking* HERE.  I took full advantage of the changed mid-peak rates by stripping the bedding to get it washed and out on the clothes line first thing this morning.

After I had completed my second sets of squats for the 30 Day Squat Challenge after lunch (I will be breaking the number of squats down by doing so many throughout the day then all at once) , oh yes thanks to Gill, Jane, Kat and the young lady who I have yet to learn her name over at The Quest to be Financially Abundant, for joining me in this Challenge, I headed on out to meet the Flower bed challenges.

"Truly with a huge one of my famous *sighs* I resorted myself not to become overwhelmed by beginning with a small "grid" today.  Before, after and would you look at that pile of leaves considering that much had been raked from it only a month prior to today !"

"The temparture soared above the 80*F mark today (I am so stuck between F &C, jeez).  One sweet little Primose plant had made a showing.  The Herb Garden is pretty bare but for the sage and chives that have began to take off."

Truly if I had the room for a set-up, I seriously think I would start some Herbs and Vegetables seeds indoors with the aid of a Grow Light ......

Method for Planting Indoors

Hydroponics is a way to maintain plants indoors and take care of the entire process in the comfort of your own home. Whether you are looking for nutrient additives to make your experience a success or perhaps a better selection of Grow Lights, there are tons of Grow Lights and other supplies available at The LA Shop. Hydroponics is basically growing plants without soil, but still using water and nutrients or whatever ends up being chosen. 

There are tons of helpful nutrients that you can add to your plants that will be able to help you grow more efficiently and safely. Some of the nutrients that are available include tons of different hybrid mixes and whatnot that were formulated to help with the growth and health of your plants. Some mixes are only a dollar each, which means it’s very easy to keep your plants growing and happy! Some would recommend the “Organic Feeder” which would mix nicely with most plants, no matter what you are growing. LA shop Hydroponics has been BBB accredited since 2011 and is thrilled to keep serving its thriving customer base. Specializing in garden and plant life, LA shop Hydroponics will surely help you create a garden that is easy to maintain and serves you well. Tons of indoor gardening supplies are available as well as quality grow tents and lights that will help any aspiring indoor gardener to get started. 

From organic to aeroponic and many other types of indoor gardening, you can be sure to find everything you need from LA shop. Hydroponics isn’t hard at all and anyone who is curious should read a little bit more on it and see just how easy it is! After you have all the supplies set up, it’s really only a matter of maintaining. If you want to be successful in hydroponics, all you really have to do is research a little bit and then just make sure you maintain. 

Disclosure:  I did not have LA Shop's Grow light products sent to me by the Company in renumeration for this Guest Post.  However in my own opinion, I certainly would not turn down such an item, if there had been one sent to me, and after perusing their website I am of the opinion their prices are within an excellent margin for such quality items.

Once again ....
