New Plants!

Posted on

I have some new “babies” that I’ll be planting on Thursday provided the weather is good.  Yesterday we picked up 12 cabbages, 6 broccoli  and 6 sprouts.  I also picked up more onions to grow, some to be just “spring onions” some crosses fingers to be stored onions.  I checked the strawberry plants and they seem to be doing well and have new growth and almost all of them.

Today we picked up a few more plants… We almost picked up chicks, but they didn’t have any that I wanted in the shop we were in.  I still would prefer to get my new chicks from the hatchery, but if I can get the ones I want cheaper at a store then I will.  I did get a very nice looking green grape, that has what appears to be some bunches already starting on it.  I am planning on putting it next to where my outdoor kitchen is going to go.  This way I can have it grow to cover one “wall” in it.  I found a red current and I am hoping it does better than the black currents that I kept buying.. and died.

We found some small rosemary plants and as it seems that ours may not have survived the winter we got two of them.  We picked up some  garlic and some horseradish as well.  Now my big surprise was find pecan seedlings there.  I like pecans, and I was very happy to see them in the farm store as it will probably take a few years for this one to produce.  It’s about 9 inches tall not counting the root system.  I can’t wait till the next no stormy day so I can get all these out and in the ground.. Thursday is the most likely of days for that it appears based on the weather pattern we have coming through.

I am planning on getting pictures of all of them once I can, the light isn’t what I’d like for it right now.  …and it’s COLD outside today.


Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…
