Join us at The Creative HomeAcre Hop!

Another week has absolutely flown by!  
I shared Plants to Grow in Full Sun but I never revealed the final project.  Even now it is still not quite complete and we can't rush mother nature!  I'll  share more pictures once all of the seedlings are grown.


It's difficult to see the Swiss Chard and pepper seedlings since they are still very small. The sunflower seedlings are on the far right but didn't make it in the frame.

There are orange and lemon peels scattered throughout the planter to deter the neighbor's cat from using it as a litterbox.  So far it's working!

I planted marigolds, French Breakfast Radish,
Lemon Queen Sunflower, Fine Verde Basil, 5-Color Silverbeet Swiss Chard and Lavender.

To Celebrate, I have announced a 2 FOR 1 Seed Special at 
Mary's Heirloom Seeds.

Order ANY variety of Tomatoes and get a second for FREE!  

Order Genovese Basil and get a second pack FREE!
Jalapeno, Serrano, Cal Wonder, Anaheim Peppers and Golden Marconi Peppers are also 2 for 1!
**We will be away from our seed office June 19th- 25th**All orders placed during these days will ship June 26th.

And now for the party!
