Seedy… Monday?

This was going to be a “Seedy Sunday” post, but a weekend at work got me a little delayed.. But:

Yahoo! My first seed packs arrived today. These arrived from a site in Sweden – Rara Växter.

Bonus seeds – a frilly sort of poppy, Papaver laciniatum “Venus”.I’m not very into double/frilly flowers, but these are actually rather cute.

So to the stuff I’ve actually ordered – 3 kinds of chilis and some cherry tomatoes.

These are “Filius Blue”
“Napalese Bells”
“Lemon Drops”
I might not manage to grow (all) the chilis, but it’s fun to try something a little different. And if I do manage they’re pretty cool looking. I’ll also be growing/trying to grow jalapenos.

So to the tomatoes – these are called “Houndreds and Thousands” and have popped up in several kinds of taste tests and have been mentioned as favorites on several blogs and websites I’ve visited, so why not try them?!
My order from the Real Seed Catalogue have arrived, too, but I haven’t been down at the post office to pick them up yet. They only use insured registred post, so I have to go down to the post office to sign for it.

So.. now I’m dreaming of a mini greenhouse with lighting to give me a chance to actually get some live plants this summer. My birthday is coming up, so perhaps I can wish for donations for one of these. Might work well to grow micro greens and keep herbs alive in winter, too!

The boys, on the other hand, prefer to sleep. They might actually change their mind once they have a yard of their own, though!

  2. Dad loves when his seeds arrive too. It gets him all anxious to plant and see green sprouts. Mom's most favorite plants are poppies. What a pretty poppy that is! We can't wait to see it blooming in your yard!Love ya lotsMaggie and Mitch

  3. We've got the seed catalogs out, too. There are six inches of snow on the ground now, but we're ready for Spring to come! It will mostly be vegetables for us — and we're hoping this is the year we put in some dwarf fruit trees, too… – – – – – – -Jack@PDBdog beds and more
