It rained last night around here. A lot.
And the wind blew.
And it rained some more.
Did you get rain?
In a knee jerk reaction to the flooding I bought “Pink Balcony” and “Angelique” begonia tubers, Lily of the Valley pips and “Key West” astilbe tubers. And I felt much better!
On Saturday, I cleaned out my little greenhouse; that “chore” made me very happy. On Sunday I bought some Burpee brand veggie seeds — French Filet beans, Black-Seeded Simpson lettuce and Italian parsley — as well as some Giant Imperial Mix larkspur seeds because it was raining and I couldn’t clean up the yard.
And I spent a couple of dreamy hours reading and marking up my Territorial Seed catalog. A family owned company, Territorial is my go-to mail order source for veggie “onsies”: I order individual plants (not seeds) of a few different kinds of tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants from the company every year with great success. The plants have always arrived safely tucked into a slotted cardboard box. If you, like me, don’t need 6 of each kind of veggie plant you might want to try Territorial.
P.S. Territorial doesn’t know me from a hole in the wall.
