May Showers Bring - Mail Order Plants

It was rainy almost all day today, with highs in the 50's.

It remains warmer in Fairbanks, and they are almost at their 19 hour day to boot.  Well, I guessd we had our spring last month.  But maybe not, it is supposed to get warm again by the end of the week.

Today our plants came from Burpees - Basil Cardinal and Impatien Rose Parade mix.  Burpeees, once again, did a really nice job in packaging, and once they get oer looking a tiny bit wilty, (and it warms up) we will be putting them out.

They sure look a heck of a lot better than the tomatoes that came from Totally Tomatoes.

We should be getting one more package, from the wonderful Seed Savers Exchange.  We got an email from them yesterday, so they should be coming soon.

We bought another Earthbox for our back yard, which doesn't have much land in full sun but some patio area.  It will be our second Earthbox.  This will be our third year using one, and they are fantastic.

Rain rain, it's nice now, but pretty soon, we hope you go away.
