Ragged Point Jade Hunt

Ragged Point is located 15 miles north of San Simeon and 15 miles south of Jade Cove along Highway 1. Its a beautiful, rugged beach that we had all to ourselves. There is a lot to explore and we found some really nice pieces of jade and driftwood. We also saw a California Condor.

I love Craigslist!

I discovered this composter FREE on craigslist last night right before we were getting ready to eat dinner. Luckily it was located just a couple of blocks away. Its in great shape and as you can see compared to the bikes, is pretty big. It will fit perfectly into a corner of the garden. It's originally from the Gardener's Supply Company and I found it online - this thing sells for $169!!! I love getting a deal :),38-682,default,cp.html

I got this end table today at the San Luis Obispo flea market for $5. Don't worry, I'm not going to paint it turquoise :)

The Farm

Here is the progress of the garden so far. It's growing pretty slow but we've had a lot of foggy weather so far this spring. It's my first garden so Im proud that it's even alive at this point! That last picture reminds me that I need to go do some weeding......

Here is what we have growing:
Roma Tomatoes (2), Blue Lake Bush Beans, Oregano, Jalapenos (2), Lemon Cucumber,Yellow Crookneck Squash, Zucchini, Cilantro, Nasturtiums and there was a Basil plant but it mysteriously disapeared.

Craigslist Nightstand

I got this nightstand for free on craigslist in Morro Bay! All it cost me was some sample size paint from Ace Hardware (Turquoise Bay and Warm Scones). I sanded it and did two coats of each color. The handle was originally painted a brass color and was covered in grime but some steel wool cleaned it up really nice! I am really happy with the way it turned out and now have the urge to paint all my furniture turquoise.....
