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)
Forest Fire CELOSIA (my favorite out of all of them)
And now for the veggies!
Early Prolific Straightneck SQUASH
Garden Sweet Hybrid CUCUMBER
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.

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!!
