I mentioned ordering more tomato seeds. I am trying Park’s Whopper. I received seeds from Park in about 5 days. It has been over a week now, and I haven’t received what I ordered from Burpee. From the looks of things, I won’t get those Walls o’ Water out anytime soon. We’ve 8-10″ more of snow, and though it is going to be up in the 40’s this week that 3 feet out there isn’t going to melt away very soon. I had hoped to get the tomatoes going sooner so I could get them out really early. Need some more seed planting medium, too.
By the way, I’m going to try growing strawberries in growing bags. Think I’ll hang them on a shepherd’s crook in my flower garden.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
