My first day of planting required a spoon… Don’t ask.
So, let’s get this garden blog rolling!
As I stated in the “Seeds Hitting the Dirt” post, I am “birthing” 144 seeds in my office window this year. (I suppose, when a girl doesn’t have a uterus anymore, she’ll take birthing however she can get it.*chuckles slyly at her happily uterus-less self*)
Anyhow, I think it’s time to introduce you to the horticultural brood my muse and I are expecting. All of the kids are from Burpees, save one lone pepper which I will point out to you proudly. Beside their names will be the date they actually were planted and how many of the seeds we have sown.
I realize this will be rather boring, but I’m hoping you can use this as reference through our upcoming blogging adventure. (I know I’ll need the help.)
After this “getting to know you” bit, you will get some cuddle time with each seed in the order they pop up in my window. With each arrival, the plant will enter “The Garden Players” page. There I will keep a running record of that particular seed’s journey through life in Cora’s Garden.
So without further ado, here is this year’s “Seeds in the Dirt” list.
Brace yourself, this could get tedious.
Until next time…
