Tuesday Garden Party

Today’s topic of planning is timely.  I have not kept good track, but I remember last year cosmos, batchelor buttons and zinnias did not come up as volunteers like the year before.  So while at Rite-Aid getting some good buys including Hormel Chili 4/$5.00 with $4.00 back in Rite-Aid Rewards, I ran into their seed display at 40% off.  Our local Times-Standard last week had the usual garden column talking about how great Chinese greens grow here i Humbolt County.  I bought some of those too. 

What is that apple container from Costco doing there??  I am using it as a mini-greenhouse.  Hopefully next week I will have actually planted some flower seeds!

However, I have anoher project taking up my attention:

Moda Bliss Line by Bonnie and Camille…. a quilt for my little neighbor who will turn 2 on 2/14/11.  She is my granddaughter’s best friend who, between the two of them, gave me many happy memories these last several months. 

So lots to do, better get on it!
