Earlier this week, we had 60 degree temperatures, thunderstorms, and tornado warnings. Last night, it was 5. FIVE! And so, winter, I’m calling it. You had your fun with us, and I know last fall I was all, “I love the cold as long as there’s snow! I just hope we get a good snowstorm or two.” Yes, you abided. I appreciate that about you, winter.
But I’m over it. Uncle. There, it has been officially stated. I call uncle.
Luckily, I have green things growing already and the promise of more green things. Last week or so, I posted about asking for free seeds from Wintersown. This was my first time contacting them, and I sent an SASE and a request for 6 packets of free mixed seeds. You wanna know what arrived today?
You know what was in it? Holy criminy, I am so excited!
- Mexican Hat
- Raymond’s Canada Extra Early Tomatoes
- Tatsoi (a relative of Bok Choy)
- Wildflower blend
- Evening primrose
- Shirley poppy
- Rudbeckia Indian Summer
- Pink Hibiscus
In the basement, we already have the following seedlings either planted or growing:
- A bunch of different lettuces
- A couple of different types of cauliflower
- A bunch of peppers
- And… some other stuff I can’t remember without looking
In totally unrelated news, I now have a chicken serving as co-pilot of a spaceship and a yarn ball planet on my arm. I am pleased with this.
