There is nothing better than the promise of seedlings. Recently I planted seeds of the North Georgia Candy Roaster squash which grows 18 inches long and weighs about 10 pounds. This is a winter squash which stores well and is very sweet. I didn't know if the seeds would be viable since I saved them from the squash I bought at the farmer's market last year - and yippee they are.
I also planted Cherokee black bean seeds (Trail of Tears seeds). I got the seeds from a farmer last year at the farmer's market. So far only one has come up. I wonder if I should soak the hard seed overnight before planting. If other's don't come up, I'll try that.
I bought a packet of sunflowers Autumn Beauty and started those seeds and they're coming up well.
Planting and watering seedlings led me to make a row cover for the plants so they wouldn't be over watered by all the rain. Then bending over to spritz the seedlings had me dreaming of a potting bench. Today we looked through our lumber pile to see what we could build. Stay tuned for a rustic potting bench.
Every day Barney (below - a true manx) meows to come in to see if Butter is here. He sniffs everything in the middle bedroom and even looks under the bed for him. Then he wants to go back out. Even though the two were stand-offish I guess they loved each other. The need for companionship is universal in animals and people. Poor little Butter.
Betty (below-part Maine coon cat) wants to go out in the morning before the sun rises but I tell her no. She has to wait for the sun to come up.
Oh the news said big cats are getting canine distemper and it makes them not have a fear of humans, so be careful of mountain lions, pumas, or whatever you may call them. They may attack humans which isn't their normal behavior. Tomorrow is the Trash to Treasures sale so I'll be busy getting ready for that and hopefully be able to get those bells strung up so show you. Spring is a busy time of year I guess. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
