Last week I pulled 10 yellow crotons (don’t
know the common name) from my daughter’s front garden, and brought them to my
place. I don’t like to throw away
perfectly good plants, even if they are not to my favorite, so I planted four
around the back garden and the other six I put them in containers to give away.
I must admit the yellow crotons in the middle
of all the green gives the garden a nice look, especially in the early morning
when the sun is coming up.
This week I received my order of vegetable
seeds from Annie’s Heirloom Seeds, they were recommended by a friend. This year I’m trying something a little
different, I will try to grow must of my vegetables from seeds.
In this part of the country we don’t have
green houses to germinate our seeds, so the best place is a shady area to keep
them away from the hot midday sun. I’m trying to grow tomatoes, broccoli and
cucumbers, the rest I will plant later direct into the vegetable garden.
