Lots going on around here this weekend, but I'm managing to melt a little here and there. Today it's been Crosscreek's Plum Pudding. It's 100% divine in every way!

This afternoon I have been melting Sweet Cinnamon Coffee from Nene's. It is pretty good, not a favorite, but good. It is so hard getting a really good scent throw with all of the windows open and a good strong breeze coming in. I am smelling it every once in awhile.

I was out planting my vegetable garden (which is taking me forever)....and a "U-MONGO" thunderstorm just blew in. We have not had one like this in a long time!! I guess I will finish up tomorrow...

Melting Cake Candle's Sugar Cookie. Lovetopuzzle - I hear ya about the scent throw dilemma. I get a good whiff when the fan blows past the melter then on to me and it's niiiiiice. The breeze and the scent.

Maggie - What's growing in your garden this year? I went nuts with heirloom tomatoes. I love those ugly tomatoes! I have them in almost every color in the rainbow (even pink...those are for DD). We also have cucumbers, Italian peppers, bell peppers, watermelon, pumpkins, 1 corn just to see what happens, berries, and grapes. The last 5 are new things for us. I was curious and the price was right. Hopefully everything will grow nicely. DD is hoping for watermelons and pumpkins.
Today's melts -
Candy Corn and Lime & Coconut from CFTKR.
I've been burning YC's Stars & Stripes, and New Zealand Wild Berry.

Momuvtwo~ Sounds like a great evening!
LLVV~ Your garden sounds wonderful! I hope everything grows well for you! I had planted some seeds a few weeks ago and kept them under a growing light in the basement (which probably looked awfully suspicious to the neighbors) and now that the weather looks nice I am planting the seedlings. I hope I get something out of all this: Cherry tomatoes, peppers (green & red), plum tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, cantelope and watermelon. Last time I tried this I got 1 green tomato and 3 green beans out of the deal.... I must say that the crows and the rabbits ate good that year. I am also not known for my green thumb....but I am still gonna give it a try.
I still have Prim Wishes going in my bedroom....this little tart has been going for at least a week at about 6 hours or more a day...I am very impressed.
