Garden Update

The sunflowers in the cut flower garden are looking GREAT!  So great in fact that I actually made two bouquets out of them and took them up to my college!  I gave one of them to my student adviser (for all of the hard work she's done for my brother and I), and then I … Continue reading Garden Update

Seeds are up! (Part 2)

The seed planting and growing continues inside, as the temperatures outside stay around freezing.  (It snowed the other day!) One of the plants I worried about most over this frigid spring has been my peppers, which I've been told needed a hotpad (by both people and books) to get the seeds to grow.  I've had … Continue reading Seeds are up!
