One of the things Sparky has missed while traveling full time in an RV is gardening---growing her own vegetables and flowers. Other than carting around a bunch of pots with messy dirt, how do you garden in an RV? Wouldn't you know, somebody has thought of this specialty niche! This is from Mike Wendland's blog/website, Roadtreking.com
New store helps RVers grow gardens on the road
|Here's a cool new business startup of interest to RVers: One thing many RVers miss on the road is growing their own vegetables and herbs. A new business called RV Sprouts has opened that features home gardening supplies, seed starting supplies, and vegetable seeds and plants that are perfect for RV users. The store's annual flowers, herb seeds, cottage flowers and fruit plants are perfect for starting a robust garden on the road or at home. Check it out! http://www.rvsprouts.com
Sparky might just decide to start growing vegetables! (Vegetables? What are those? laughs E., who is severely deficient in those lately.) Sparky is not very good about getting the daily fruit and veggie requirements in for the both of us. Shame, shame! She knows.....
Are you looking for gifts for an RVer? Pinterest has just the board for you. What is Pinterest? It's a pinboard style photo sharing website. It's a visual smorgasboard of digitally pinned photos, videos, etc., sort of like a collection of digital bulletin boards that ordinary people have compiled. It's addicting!
Some of these ideas are a little sketchy and maybe not as useful as we full timers think. A remote controlled rolling beverage cooler? C'mon...seriously???? A magnetic knife board that looks like wood? That doesn't seem like a good idea to have your knives out on display hanging magnetically while traveling down the highway. The Pinterest board is still a fun to look at and Sparky loves looking at Pinterest anyway. It's like eye candy. Sparky is SO easily captivated by bright colorful photos...Sparky likes the LED flashlight on this cool gifts for RVers board. http://pinterest.com/rentzio/cool-gifts-for-rv-ers/
Here's a link to Sparky's Pinterest page in case you are interested in another example of what Pinterest is like.

Are you bored today? You shouldn't be if you are full timing! There's WA-A-A-Y too much to see and do out there on the road! We've been in the same spot for 5 1/2 months, so we thought we'd throw out a little RV trivia quiz for you, courtesy of Island RV Guide....
RV Trivia Challenge
This restaurant won first place in the 2012 Best Chowder Award at the International Chowder Championships in Newport, Rhode Island. The chowder festival has been featured on the Food Network and the CBS Morning Show. So Sparky and Eldo had some of Captain Curt's award winning chowder and it was DELICIOUS!
The day passed by quickly, and tomorrow it's going to be hot, hot, hot again...We'll see what Eldo has in mind...Stay tuned......
