Eat Make Grow Blog Hop - April Fails

Eat Make Grow Blog Hop - April Fails www.FoyUpdate.blogspot.com

Welcome to March's Eat Make Grow Blog Hop where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses. Eat Make Grow is a collective link party that is shared across three blogs and runs every first Thursday and goes for 20 days. No matter which blog you choose to link up your post with, it will show up on all three sites!

Eat Make Grow is a way to share with many people posts about your domestic doings, whether that’s gardening, crafting or trying out a new recipe. We want to learn about it!



Every month, we will feature the most popular link, one chosen by the the host and a group favorite.

Your Hosts:
Miranda from Pocket Pause
Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky! 
Foy from Foy Update (That's me!)

We’re not big fans of rules so there are just two of them:
  1. Link up posts telling us how you cooked it, made it or grew it with your own hands. Eat Make Grow is about sharing our projects. Please no advertising, propaganda, corporate giveaways or information-only articles. We may remove links if they aren't on topic.
  2. Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs.This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Eat Make Grow community by sending your readers to all of the other participants' posts.We will feature three posts each month and we will only consider posts that have a link back. A text link is fine, or you can grab our button and put it anywhere on your blog (html in my sidebar):
 


This month your host is Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!

Hi, everybody! April's Eat Make Grow theme is one I think we can all relate to: FAILS! This should be a fun one! In honor of April Fool's Day we want to see what happens when things go wrong in your kitchens, craft rooms and gardens. We're looking for glitter mishaps, pot roast tragedies and rotten tomatoes. We can't all be Martha, all the time, so link up at the end of this post with the worst of the worst!

We had fun going through all of the Spring themed links from March. I hope is is actually starting to feel like spring where you live!

Here are the Eat Make Grow featured posts from March with the theme "Spring":

Our Most Clicked post comes from The Hobby Room Diaries. Jody shares an easy tutorial about making your own Newspaper Seed Starting Pots. A little folding, a dab of glue, and you're ready to get your spring garden started!

Shamrock Shakes are a guilty pleasure of mine. Every March, I drive-thru McDonald's way, way more often than is reasonable and/or healthy. I do it secretly, when my kids are in school, so they don't have to witness their mother on a minty sugar high. I'm a junkie for the Green Magic, as we call it on the street. (Not really. Nobody calls it that.) So when I saw this Leprechaun Shake on Mama Miss, I had to make it my Host's Pick. It is made with lowfat milk and frozen yogurt. Maybe this is my chance to get clean. She has a diary-free version, too. I'm not ready for that, though. Baby steps.

And finally, our Group Pick is from Deep Roots at Home. Jacqueline writes about starting a Straw Bale Urban Garden with great links to resources and inspiration for starting an above ground garden with a straw bale base. This is a great way to start a garden if you have space limitations or use a sunny spot that may not have ideal soil conditions. She also shares the beautiful melons and berries she has successfully grown in her own straw bale gardens.
