3-Day Christmas Treasure Hunt

Do you like puzzles and games???

Hi there!  I am so excited about this new 3-Day Email Treasure Hunt I am hosting!!!

The 3-Day Treasure Hunt will be super-fun! You will receive one email a day for 3 days. (opt-in only, see below)  Each email will contain a clue. Each clue you find will earn you an entry to win a prize bundle for your hair!  Invite a friend to participate with you for an extra entry!  (to invite, you’ll share the link to this page; DO NOT add anyone to the form without their consent!!!)

Everyone that completes all 3 days’ clues, by replying to the emails, will get a free gift of $17 Lilla Bucks! Lilla Bucks are like cash you can spend on my website (but not available during a sale).

You are eligible to receive Lilla Bucks, even if I have previously given you some! I can not give you Lilla Bucks if you have another Lilla Rose Stylist, though. You’ll need to reach out to your Stylist to see what offers she has going on. Other Lilla Rose Stylists are welcome to participate for training purposes, but are not eligible for these prizes.

The party will begin on Monday, November 23 through Wednesday, November 25, 2020. So get registered ASAP!

Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.

Fall Planted Garlic in North Central Texas

After posting pics of planting garlic in my garden in the fall, I had a number of people comment and message me asking for information, so I figured I’d share about my garlic growing experience.

I’ve always read that you shouldn’t use grocery store garlic for planting. Well… In the past, that’s all I’ve used. I did get organic heads, at least. This was my first year to order from a garlic nursery, so hopefully it grows as well as my grocery store garlic did!

The are actually two types of garlic: hard neck and soft neck. It’s my limited understanding that which one you grow depends on your climate. Here in North Central Texas, I went with a soft neck garlic called Texas Rose.

In October, I ordered from The Garlic Store, though I don’t see Texas Rose listed on their website at this time of this writing. It arrived quickly and I planted on October 27.

I planted one clove about every four inches, then recovered the soil with my wood chip mulch. And that’s it!

 

Update: Late Winter, February 15

Garlic has been growing well! My fall garden produced well and became chicken feed in January (thanks to a hole in the fence that was made by the goats, but not big enough for the goats). Because of the strong flavor, the garlic survived just fine.

It’s about two feet tall, which I think is probably about full height.

I’ll update again as the garlic progresses! Now it’s time for me to cut back the asparagus and perennial flowers to prepare for the spring growth!
