March & April Monthly Video Recap

March came in like a lamb and out like a lion this year, at least for us. For many of you it came and left like a fire-breathing dragon! April then brought us early flowers and plenty of gardening. That’s why I’ve combined our March and April recap into one this year. I’ve been pretty busy all during the month of April planting something or other. Most of the veggie garden is now finished and we have a brand new flower garden outside our gate. Needless to say, while I was busy preparing our gardens, Steve was busy creating fabulous videos to share with you all.

If you happened to have overlooked any of our March or April videos that were posted for all viewers on YouTube, here they are with a list of links to them all.

As usual, you will also find the additional links to exclusive content on Patreon (only accessible if you’re a Patron). If you’ve not become a Patron yet, please consider supporting this channel and receiving additional, helpful content.

One thought on “March & April Monthly Video Recap

  1. Watching your program on brushes brought to mind another question on supplies. In my area we have Blick, Hobby Lobby, Michaels and a independent local supply house. Plus Cheep Joe’s and one other mail /on line supply house that I can’t remember now. So how do you get your supplies in the Carolina’s? And how do you rate them. Micheals and Hobby Lobby are only pretending to be art supplies I consider them craft stores. Do you have any thoughts?
