Good Morning from Hopalong Hollow!
Are you planning your garden? It's one of the pleasures of the cold months to imagine how wonderful everything will be when at long last we get to dig into that soil and begin the process of CREATING the garden.
I started these seedlings in the kitchen window in late Feb.: PENSTEMON and CANTERBURY BELLS.
If all of them grow to healthy plants, I will have dozens of beautiful growers for my cottage gardens and my Potager...for mere pennies.
The seed is quite a wonder: inside the tiny hardened compartment is all the DNA required to tell that miraculous little morsel what kind of leaves it is to have, what color, shape, size, and scent it is destined to be.
A field of Poppies? A 7 ft, Hollyhock topped with soft pink ruffled and delicate blooms?
A pear tree covered in red or yellow succulent fruits?
You can be the one to nurture these bitty seeds to become what they were meant to be, in just a few steps.
