Can we say... "Rivenfae went shopping?" And thats not the only thing either...
This is another yard sale find! WE got the pair for $5 needs one glass replaces and wicks, and they hang on the wall.
They are taking over my home! These are not even half of them.
It is hard to get a picture of them through the mesh... and with all our cats I'm not leaving it open long enough to get the "best" picture. That striped one is one of the turkeys.
Here is my seed list (i.e. my current seed inventory):
Orange Fleshed Purple Smudge
A Grappoli D' Inverno
I also got a “mystery type” when I bought them so we will see what it is later
Yellow Scotch Bonnet
Chinese Five Color
Chinese Red Noodle
Taiwan Black Seeded
Jaune Obtuse Du Doubs

Moon & Stars Yellow Fleshed
Herbs (cooking and medicinal):

Dill – Bouquet
Slo Bolt Cilantro
I picked all these up at the Baker Creek seed store along with my Elderberry plants, raspberry plants, and blueberry plant. I picked up the black currents at the local discount food seller who was selling them for $1.99 per little plant, I could not pass that up. I was a tad annoyed though about the sweet peppers, they were out of the ones I wanted so the two I bought were something I don't even know anything about.
The reason for all the melons is we love melons and I am going to try to broaden our tastes in them and the ones we like the most on the “multi” types we will keep. I have started as of today my tomatoes and peppers, they have now “invaded my kitchen as you can tell from the picture. That isn't even all of them either it's less than half of the starter pots.
We planted all the fruit plants we bought today as well and, I even managed to plant some flower roots, bulbs and plants as well as my rhubarb. I hope they all do well, I covered them all in straw for mosture retention. The temps today topped off at about 85, when the weather people said we'd barely make it to 70.
I am hoping in a couple of days to get some of my herbs started in post as well, but tomorrow is going to be a bad day for the dogs. They are all going to the vet... no thanks to my neighbor, who thought my dog with the allergy was badly ill and reported me to the police. So They are have to go to the vet tomorrow so I can prove she has an allergy. This should be tons of fun for me, four dogs in our station wagon... yuck.
The chicks we bought now a little over a week old are getting bigger, the turkeys seem to have doubled in size; at least they seem to me. I have ordered my Jersey Giants and they will not be available till the 3rd of May however. Which means then they current batch in the brooder will go outside and they newbies will go in my brooder. All we need to do first is build their yard and at least half their house.
Be Well all and Blessed Be...
