Wild Blackberry Harvest

Wild Blackberry Harvest

This was only the second, full year we’ve lived in this house and I got to take advantage of the wild blackberry bushes this year! We literally have wild blackberry bushes littered ALL over our property. I in no way could pick them all myself. […]

Ah-Fall!

Ah-Fall!

Don’t you just love fall! We do at motherhenfive. Living in Pennsylvania we have the pleasure of having the effects of all four seasons. Pretty much equal amounts of each. We look forward to the beginning and ending of each season. What do you think […]

BIG News!

BIG News!

Yes, it does have to do with the male species but not with my relationship status. By the end of this year, 4 more boys will be calling me Aunt Danielle.

You know my sister Michelle is having a baby! If you don’t, go and watch their cute video. Also, one of my closest friends are having a baby boy and I am Aunt Danielle to the little guy. For the grand finale (drum roll, please.) I am taking a new job! I am officially a nanny for two little boys!

Every year in May, I take time to reminisce. This year, I started cleaning for the 11th year. I know that that isn’t a long time, but when you are 23 years old, that is half of your life. With 10 years in one job, I decided to change it up some. I am putting down my full time cleaning tools and picking up a bottle and some dinosaurs. The excitement and the extreme terror of being responsible for children (outside of my immediate family) is a little overwhelming right now, but I am ready.

I have some ideas that I hope to share with you. There are definitely some adventures ahead. To those of you who love cleaning hacks, I am working on a blog post. It is to be for those I have cleaned for for the past few years, but I figured you would enjoy some tips and tricks.

Have a great day Y’all. Be intentional with the days that you have.

CAMPING – Prince Galliztin State Park

Our first adventure in the camping was this month. We went up to our favorite get-a-way, Prince Galliztin State Park. We love just the quietness of it. It is the off-season though. Take a look at our video of our day away. We make pizza grilled cheese sandwiches while we were away. They were great! You can even make them in your iron piemaker, if you have one.

Grilling!
Lunch!

Here are the ingredients you will need:

  • Bread
  • Pepperoni
  • Ham (optional)

My Diary

Post ID:

THE LEMON PLANTS ARE OVER A YEAR OLD! I know, it’s crazy! In the last blog post, all of the plants were still in my bedroom. Theres only three now. No, I didn’t kill them. Each plant is doing well on its own.

LEMON TREE JOURNEY PART 1

These are the last of the three still at home. They are doing well and still growing.

Over the past year, they have only been fed water. I am starting to use fertilizer and in a few weeks plan to re-pot them. The plan is to do another blog post to show you the fertilizer brand and my thoughts about the product.

From a lot of research that I have read, they say it takes up to 3 years before any fruit is produced. Since a lemon tree takes up to 2 -3 years before they produce any fruit, I am excited to know I am one year closer to having my own lemons.

A friend of mine was talking to me about my lemon plant. We both have different thoughts on growing a lemon tree. She couldn’t grasp why I would try to grow a lemon tree and not get any fruit for 2-3 years. She said it was easier to just go to the grocery store and buy a lemon. I just stared at her in amazement. She couldn’t grasp the excitement to walk to your own plant, in the kitchen, and make your own lemonade from your own lemons. Don’t worry, I am still friends with this non-supportive person. haha!

I want to just say thank you to ya’ll. You have been such a support and I am glad to know you are enjoying this journey as much as I am.
