Garden Seed Rambles ~ And Kitties

Am very happy…I came home to all but one of the heirloom tomatoes sprouting!

I planted the following maters ~ Mortgage Lifter, Cherokee Purple, Caspian Pink, and Red Beefsteak (not sure if that one was an heirloom or not).

Here’s a picture of the Ruby corn and the Pickling cucs…you may be able to see a leek and onion in there too. 🙂 Me thinks my corn might be more than knee high by the Fourth of July!

I need to start the tomatillo seeds and for flowers…I want some oriental poppies. A coworker gave me some Renee’s Garden poppy seeds, Hungarian Breadseed, that will produce baking seeds. They are sooooo pretty!

I plan on stopping by the Garden Shop Nursery, that moved to the old Caughlin Ranch House on Mayberry & McCarran (the house that I’ve loved for about 30 years now), at lunch today to look at more seeds.

I love how Catherine at Quilt Obsession shares photos of her kitties every day…so here are my two critters (although I share lots of pictures of them).

Lucy is our back door sentry…she guards that sliding glass door like her life depends on it. The fact that there are a whole backyard full of birds might have something to do with that. 🙂

    Your cuke seedlings are TOO cute LOL!

    So are the furkids. 😉

    My tomatoes were only seeded Monday, so a wee bit early, though I check frequently. ;-P

    I’m never sure when to do any kind of planting around here. Right now it is simply gorgeous…next week we are supposed to get snow :(.

    We got a new puppy yesterday :). I will be posting pics of the family as soon as I can get them all to hold still lol.

    Gorgeous beautiful kitties!! Beefsteak tomatoes are my absolute forever favourites — but it will be August or September before we see any of those in the stores around here.

    Great shot (beyond the cute “subject”) I love how the focus is not only on the kitty but the screen as well!!! Fantastic !!
