jovie our awesome mail lady came carrying oh so many gifts yesterday. i arrived home to find not just one package but two. don't you just love getting something in the mail that isn't a bill? i do!
oh the excitement. JD and i opened our seed box and carefully went through our order. 4 types of sunflowers (for eating, attracting birds, and beauty), snow peas, snap peas, slam cucumbers, talon onions, sugar pumpkins, brussel sprouts, zebra tomatoes (and 4 other kinds) and zucchini (green and yellow) just to name a few of our purchases! we went a little overboard this year and now need to dig new garden space to plant it all. we also ordered a blueberry tree, a mulberry tree, and strawberries which won't come until the end of march when we can plant them.
for the strawberries we are thinking of building a vertical garden but don't have that fully designed yet. i will let you know when we do. next steps are building some cold frames and getting our gardening calendar all mapped out. we have been pretty lax about this in past years, following a strict schedule on planting. we have just tried to get plants in the ground with our crazy schedule; but this year JD is at the helm of the planting calendar and he is much more pragmatic than i am.
i also got the 2 black on black fir tree rolls of wallpaper that i ordered only a week ago - they were fast! i am still waiting on the two rolls for the work room redo but hopefully they are on their way. god knows we have the time, i mean we have a zillion steps to take care of before wall paper. we are supposed to kick off the construction project later today (that is after puppy class and some more material shopping) but i will get back to that later. oh there is never enough time in the weekends. that is a fact.
