Storms on the Horizon
You might think all the rain and wind meant I could sit inside and ponder life while the soil was too wet to plant or work in, but no, there were seeds to start inside (mainly of plants that I put out too early hoping different frost covers would be enough but nope!), website updates to complete, emails to respond to, muddy floors to clean, and food to prep and store away for when the rains clear and it go, go, go!
I did manage a few hours to read snuggled up under some blankets with Hella and a hot cup of tea.
This week there will mainly be some Tulips available as the Daffodils are pretty much done for. The microgreens will be a little short on variety as I ran out of my usual soil mix and had to make do with a different brand that basically hindered all germination. But I hoofed it over to Kalispell to get my usual and sowed extra for next week!
It only affected the Mild and Spicy Mixes, so it's a great week to try the Pea and Sunflower Shoots.
This is the absolute last week for the Yard Sale items so if you need a mug, bowl, or fancy plate snatch it up before it all gets spread around to the thrift stores!
Two of the final Tulips are Dodogne, a spicy peach/tangerine, and Ivory Floradale, a ghostly creamy white!
I usually like to leave a few blooms in the field, sometimes because I was too late to harvest or they weren't quite worth it to use as a cut flower (short stem or funky blossom) but others find use in them like these little spiders that live in flowers, lying in wait for a pollinating insect to stop for a meal only to become a meal themselves!
What's available this week?
Where to find it all?
