Continue to Feed Your Veggies and Flowers with Whitney Farms Plant Food

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Whitney Farms for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you are like me and are growing your own vegetables these season, but do not want to use chemicals on your garden, it is time to check out the organic soil found at Whitney Farms® Whitney Farms has 25+ years of leading gardening experience and has now improved their products. The new soil no longer has a lot of dust, for those who are not fans of manure, the manure smell is all but gone, this soil is now easier to apply to the soil already in your front of backyard, there are beneficial microbes and a speciallly designed protein based blend that allows plants to soak in the macro and micronutrients as they grow and thrive.

A couple of weeks ago I planted some heirloom vegetable seeds and I just purchased some more seeds. Before planting my seeds, I did not want to grow my garden in chemically based soil, so I began looking online for places I could find organic soil to go with my organic garden. If you want to eat organic food, the only way to grow it is with organic plant food.

If you think all plant food is the same, you would be mistaken.

  • Organic plant food, in a way, is like heirloom (generational) seeds. A farmer or home gardener is able to use heirloom seeds season after season. Organic plant food works the same way in that fertilizers do not have to be constantly added to the soil season after season.
  • An organic plant food uses soil organisms instead of harmful pesicides that hurt the ground soil, seeds and consumers of the fruits and vegetables.
  • Organic farmers and home gardeners, if they have livestock, will reuse the manure and any uneaten fruits and vegetables again (mulch). Organic plant food does not contain anything created by man, like genetically modified organisms (GMO) in the soil.

Since I just planted my seeds, all I see are some tiny green stems popping out of the soil. Once my seeds begin growing to the vegetable or fruit it is supposed to be, I will upload a photo for you all to see.

A CoronaRita, What is a #CoronaRita?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chili’s Grill & Bar for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Does this sound good or what! Sounds like it is a cross between a Corona and Margarita. This CoronaRita is made with Jose Cuevera Especial Tequilia and a Coronita. Mixing these two excellent summer drinks together could  make for an interesting and fun way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. Will you be celebrating Cinco de Mayo this year? The best place to celebrate Cinco de Mayo is at a Chili's near you, of course. There is no other place, right? With the warmer weather right at our heels, the CoronaRita is the best way to kick off our favorite season of the year. 

Chilis is one of my families favorite places to eat. In fact, it might be our favorite place, especially when I receive their coupons in my inbox where my girls can eat for free. Yeah, we eat at Chilis all the time. In fact, one of the booths has our names on it. No, I am just kidding! When celebrating Cinco de Mayo, I would probably want to celebrate with my girlfriends though. I rarely have a Girls Night Out and this would be the perfect time to get out of the house, have a few laughs and drink one of Chilis newest drinks. Yeah, I have a few girlfriends who would totally enjoy trying this new alcholic beverage at Chilis.

Everytime I eat a Chilis I either purchase the Crispy Honey Chicken Strips or the Chicken Fajitas. Anyone of these menu items would go exceptionally well with a CoronaRita at Chili's. Actually, almost any food in Chilis menu will go well with this new CoronaRita.

Hey, if you like Chilis as much as I do and are going to celebrate Cinco de Mayo soon, what will you be eating and Chilis to go with your CoronaRita? Details please...details..

For the people already going to a Dollar General Store, there will be 50 Dollar General in California stores.There will be Dollar General Stores up and down the state of California. That is a lot of stores from one company in California. This means where ever you live or drive to within California, you are bound to see a Dollar General Store. If you are hungery on your journys throughout California, there will be a Dollar General Store close by. The Dollar General Store closed to me is in Merced at 1729 W State Highway 140, Merced,CA 95341.

Dollar General Stores sell merchandise like home decor, clothing, home and kitchen, food and other name and private label merchandise.  The Dollar General Stores corporation are big supporters of literacy in whatever city their stores are located in.

Before going to your local Californa Dollar General Store you can now receive alerts via email, text and the Dollar General Facebook. In customers are looking to purchase groceries without the other merchandise, they can look here, Dollar General Market, to see if your city is listed. It is amazing what people can do today with the increase in technoloy. Now, coupons can be sent and printed from email, text message and viewed Facebook.

It certainly is nice to know you can purchase merchandise, name or private lable brand for a dollar and know the money you spend is going towards a good cause. Not only does Dollar General have physical stores, they have their online store where you can print out coupons.

Tulips are so beautiful. They are like a small package that grows each Sprig season and shows all their lovely colors. Walking past a group of tulips or smelling them will put a smile on your face. Having said that, tulips make for great gifts, especially for the Easter season. Even though roses are something nice to give on any give day, receiving some tulips  will put a smile on anyone's face, especially your  Mom, sister, girlfriend or wife's face. You can not go wrong when giving a gift that will not have to be returned. A vase of cut tulips will look so beautiful on a dining room table, coffee table, bedside table or windowsill.
