Fertilizer Friday/ Flaunt Your Flowers! March 11/11


Friday is a BIG day for us here at Tootsie Time…(ok, just me…there is no one else here…lol) It’s a big deal because it means it’s PARTY TIME!!!! Fertilizer Friday is the day of the week than an ELITE group of gardeners from all around the world get together, snap photos, link up and Flaunt Their Flowers!!!

Before we begin I feel that I need to re-state the pre-requisites for this little party. There isn’t that much, but it seems there has been some confusion amongst a few participants.

If you are new to Tootsie Time and Fertilizer Friday, I just know you are asking yourself…”How do I join?” Well…it’s easy really. Here’s all you need to know to become a part of this great group of gardeners, bloggers and friends:

If it is spring or summer where you live, you need to snap a few photos of what you have growing, blooming or just love to look at that is of the plant variety…if it is winter where you live, you may post past favorite photos…or indoor plants…whatever you like. The only criteria is that it is a plant or something growing!

You do not need to use fertilizer to participate in this party, but if you do, this is the reminder to fertilize weekly!

All I ask is that: Your post must include the logo above and/or a link to Tootsie Time, or the linky will be deleted. I don’t mean to be harsh, but there have been a lot of people linking in and when the participants graciously click over to their blogs, there is no sign of Fertilizer Friday anywhere to be found. This is not fair to those who do follow the rules, therefore…well you know!

So? what are you waiting for? Get outside, feed, water, snap and post!


wee!!!! look!!!


Yes sir!!! Those are Petunias!!! Wave Petunias to be specific! I am so glad they are starting to come up. I love going to the greenhouse…opening the door and seeing the green plants that fill the space!

The smell in my greenhouse right now is just glorious! It is starting to smell like plant life. I don’t know how to describe it any other way. The atmosphere in there is so calming, that once you are there…even if you have nothing to do …you just want to stay!


The whole house is almost planted. What is planted so far, is all that I want to put in for a week or two. For example, the Marigolds will go in around the 15th or 20th of this month.


I have more seeds…don’t get me wrong…but if I sow some of them too early…they won’t look good for long! If I had a larger greenhouse, I could use larger containers to plant in, or have the option of transplanting to larger pots…but unfortunately (for this year anyways) I have to carry on in my current habit.

Have you started any seeds yet? Is spring showing in your area yet? It isn’t here…but we are hopeful!

I wish you all a happy and save weekend…thanks to all who have commented and participated in Fertilizer Friday for the past couple weeks. I am behind with so much, and unfortunately, being a good single mom of three sometimes makes Tootsie a bad blogger! You get the idea…right?

Next week…I hope to share the finished project I have been working on a few minutes at a time…kids and work are keeping me very busy!

Until next time…happy gardening!
