Well, today looks like it’s going to be one of the last days before the weather turns gross and cold again. It’s sunny, it’s 60F. For whatever reason, I don’t feel like singing songs and wearing shorts yet, though. Anyhow, just wanted to quickly share some captures from the hoophouse and to update everyone on the progress of the winter sowing. Have I mentioned yet that I love winter sowing? LOVE IT. It doesn’t matter that I don’t have money for seed trays. It doesn’t matter that I don’t have money to set up a “proper” propagation area. I’m starting from scratch, and for the first time in a long time, I have that sense that “everything is going to be okay.” Don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY by visiting my Instagram or Facebook – @freshcutky or facebook.com/freshcutky. There are four prizes being offered by Botanical Interests. The deluxe gift box ($91 dollar value!), veggie gift box, sprout kit gift box, and pollinator gift box! That’s about it, much love!
I love seeing the hoop house coming to life! I’m so excited!
Some people take pictures of their kids. Other people take pictures of their flowers. Just sayin’, lol.
Why is it so hard to capture the true color these! It’s driving me crazy. That center is much more blue/purple tinted than it shows.
I’ve not edited these photos in any way. I have no idea why it looks so velvety and luxurious. LOL.
If I wasn’t paying attention, I may have mistaken this cutie for a rose.
This one got a little wonky from the cold.
Caramel Cherry Phlox making an appearance for the first time!
Potomac Mix Snapdragons
Generic Tall Snapdragons
Pixie Delight Annual Lupine
Bright Brilliant Quinoa
Monstrosum Mix Strawflower – these are the seeds that were “infested with insects” that I mentioned previously.
I’ve germinated enough sweet annie to plant like three acres. I may be exaggerating a little, but I have no idea what to do with all this stuff.
Quartet Mix Stock – First try growing this, hence the small batch.
It’s almost time to uncover the dusty miller during the warm sunny days. Germination was really nice.
My yard is literally covered in “garbage”. But, that garbage has some really precious cargo inside!
Even the Rudbeckia Triloba is happy in its container. This is the first time I’ve had such good germination. That makes me happy. They’re kind of hard to see, you’ll have to trust me on this one I guess.
Here she is! The first ranunculus buds have formed!! I’m going to be a very happy person, very soon!
