The Seed Have Arrived!

Hello Everyone!

Finally! My time of watching the mailbox for the arrival of my seed order is over! Earlier in the week the mailman brought the long awaited package of seed for the upcoming garden. Joyous squeals could be heard when Mr. Plant Lady announced that my package had arrived. It was like a scene from Christmas mornings long ago as paper wrappings were tossed about as I tore into the large envelope from the heirloom seed company. Does anyone get that excited over a few packages of seed? Anyone except me?

Packages of gourd seed were my main interest - eagerly anticipating the bountiful harvest I'm sure to have (with God's help) in the fall. They came!!! Loofah (dishrag gourds), an unusual kind I've never heard of (Gakhaa gourds), dipper gourds, and bushel basket gourds. I can't wait until April when it is time to plant! I also received some herb seed as well - a cilantro that is slow to bolt and one called "Oaxaca", along with some parsley "Brayor" and an oregano "Wild Zataar".

I'll be sowing the herb seed in flats in the greenhouse in a few days and I will post pictures as they grow! More later . . .

Be Encouraged!
Plant Lady

Good morning PlantLady ~ I can feel your excitement all the way down here. It is such fun watching plants grow from seeds. I'm looking forward to seeing your gardens from sprouts to plants, flowers, fruits and harvest, then your wonderful gourds crafted by you.

Hi Yes I'm still out here somewhere, I started to leave a comment the other day and something happened and I'm just now getting back. Happy for you and the seeds. I know the feeling I do the same thing with Material. I was in a Block of the Month club last year and every month when I would get this envelope of assorted materials probably less than a 1/4 of a yard. I would get so excited at my new creation I would make. Love and miss you, hope all is well and you are enjoying your new seeds.

chester died right after christmas. he somehow got into rat posion in our neighbors garage. we were/are very sad. everyday lately in maggies prayers she would ask Jesus to take care and to play with chester. so sweet! so we thought it would be a good time to get a new cat. so, that is why lucy is with us now. a friend of ours cat had kittens and she was looking for a home for them so the timing was perfect. Gods timing always is!

blessings ~
