Getting started

Category: Coming soon! | Posted: Thu Jun 04, 2009 11:57 pm

Today my mom took me to Fresno Ag (Agriculture) so that I could buy some seed packets, and I didn't come up empty handed :D

So, this is what I came home with:

Starting with flower seeds

Canary Bird ZINNIA

Blue FORGET-ME-NOT (in honor of my late grandmother who loved forget-me-nots)

Crackerjack MARIGOLD

Forest Fire CELOSIA (my favorite out of all of them)

Unwin's DAHLIA

And now for the veggies!

Early Prolific Straightneck SQUASH

Garden Sweet Hybrid CUCUMBER

Cinderella PUMPKIN

Cocozelle SQUASH

and now for my personal favorite

American Flag LEEKS! (I love leeks!!!)

Fortunately we didn't plant anything today because the apartment complex next door decided to drain their pool (can you guess where?) into our backyard D:

On a lighter note, we're going to dig up the disease ridden lemon trees that are so bad they don't even look like proper lemon trees anymore.

In their place we plan on planting a naval orange tree because let's face it, who doesn't love oranges?
I used to have a dog who absolutely LOVED oranges ever since she was a puppy.

Well, that's all for now.

Later days!

Well good for you! What a great variety of things you chose! I don't know if your mom is going to garden with you, but I do know that some of my very fondest memories are of time in the garden with MY mom. You will get so much info from the folks on this site -- I hope you enjoy it and lots of luck getting your garden planted!

What a great variety of seeds you've bought Katie. Once they're planted and start to sprout for you we'd all love to see progress report photographs of your plants. We're a nosey bunch but we also like to share each others sucesses and failures - not that I'm suggesting yours will fail!!

Have fun planting all your seeds with your mum and before you know it you'll have a wonderful garden you'll both be proud of.
