Spring is here!

Well, kinda. We had snow last week here in NW Oregon, which is pretty much unheard of this time of year, but there are other signs to assure us that Spring is indeed making an entrance! The daffodils and cherry trees are in bloom and it won’t be long before we’re tilling up our garden to get ready for planting!

While we wait for any chance of a freeze to pass, I’m getting some seeds started in pots under our covered deck and in the house. When John finishes the huge deck that’s in progress now, I want to have a big container garden out there with herbs and such. I can’t wait!

I was excited to get the chance to try out Miracle Gro’s Expand ‘n Gro™ Concentrated Planting Mix!

I was amazed at how light the soil was. This large bag was easily carried around with one hand with almost no effort! The unique blend of Miracle-Gro plant food and coconut coir makes for a very lightweight product that rapidly expands once you add water!


I also loved that the bag was easy-to open and re-sealable! I hate having to tear into bags of messy soil and then trying to store the rest somewhere without it spilling out and making a nasty mess.

There were clear and easy-to-read instructions on the back of the bag:


After pouring and stirring a few pitchers of water into the small amount of soil I put into my pot, it had grown to fill it about 3/4 full!


One lucky Mama Chocolate reader is going to win a small sample envelope of Miracle-Gro Expand ‘n Gro Concentrated Planting Mix!


Comment below and tell me one of your favorite things about Spring to be entered to win!

One of my favorite things about Spring is being able to open the windows and let fresh air into my home. After it being closed up all winter, Its awesome to smell the clean brisk air :)

I love when the days get longer and we have more time to enjoy the mild evenings- taking the dog for a walk or just sitting on a blanket in the yard.

Spring… I love that it’s finally starting to get warmer out and it’s not a huge hassle and challenge (or simply too cold) to take the kids outside and go for a walk! And the clean, fresh smell of spring air!

My favorite thing about spring is the cool mornings that warm up during the day! Unfortunately this year we seemed to have skipped them and went right into the summer heat! 90s during the day and 70s in the mornings!
