Well, didn't THIS brighten up a drizzly winter's day?
The order from Heirloom Seeds that I placed on December 15th FINALLY arrived. I have to say I was a little surprised at how long it took. Last years order arrived within a week. This year it was over a month.
This was the first time I have ordered from Select Seeds and that went well. The only thing left to come in is my order from Thompson and Morgan and a packet of Snow Crown Cauliflower that Vermont Bean had backordered. (see above pet peeve!)
I have begun my winter sowing of flowers-the deck is filling up quickly with trays of soil and very frozen flower seeds. What a great space saver it is to be able to start my perennials outside and save my room under the flourescent lights for the tender veggies and annuals. For those who are unfamiliar with winter sowing , here is a great site www.wintersown.org
I also pulled some of the geraniums up from the basement, trimmed them back and stuck them in a sunny window. Only one so far has greened up. I'm wondering if maybe three years is the limit on doing this. Last year all of them "came back". Oh well, I'm not out anything. Perhaps a different shade of pink is in order this year!
