About me...

Because this journey is intensely personal, there will be times when my posts will be about more than just rebuilding the physical aspects of my life. They may be random and sometimes I think they may not even make sense to some. But whatever I post here will be as honest as I can make it, no punches pulled, telling it like it it. I hope that I can share some insight with others who might be going through a similar transitory period in their own lives. With luck and perseverence I know I will eventually successful in my new life. I have very high hopes for all of this but then I had those when Dave was alive, too. I am naturally a pretty optomistic person, I think.

The Shape of What's to Come

Just a quick rundown of what I have already up in flats so far:

Aunt Ruby's German Green
Dave's Big Wave
German Johnson
Big Zebra
Brown Berry
Snow White Cherry
Green GRape
Sun Gold
Black Cherry
Black Zebra
Black Ethiopian
True Tommy Toe
Suddeth's Brandywine

True Black Brandywine
Tall Vine Brandywine
And I have a whole flat of mystery heirlooms coming up.  A couple of years ago, I participated in an heirloom seed swap online and there was a door prize contest and I won one of the prizes. It was 1000 heirloom seeds, 65 different varieties, guaranteed. I thought that was a great prize....until I received it.  It was 1000 seeds alright.  All in the same hermetically sealed envelope, with a list of what was in the pkg. attached.  Just 1000 seeds, all mixed together...and the list. I have no idea what is what so I randomly selected some seeds, planted and we'll see what happens.  Could be some interesting tomatoes coming along later in the season....

Corno Di Toro (red and yellow)
Jimmy Nardello
Nocero Giallo
Red Marconi
Sweet Bananas
Rams Horn
Sweet Cayenne
Trinidad Perfume
Mixed Colored Bells (red, yellow, purple, orange, chocolate)

Fine Verde
Purple Opal
Purple Osmin

Other herbs are starting to pop up but I am keeping those under wraps or now.  I also have quite a few more tomatoes, peppers, herbs, etc. planted but just now starting to germinate.  More on those later.

Many of the items listed above are going to be sold as plants at the DFM.  I will be planting a number of my favorites but haven't decided what is going where as yet.  Stay tuned.

How things are going with new beds, etc.

I took some pictures of what was going on in the garden a couple of weeks ago and posted them to the farm Facebook page.  I am too lazy to redo all that, so if you are interested you can go visit the link above and read the commentary with the pictures. Next time, I will post them here first and refer the Facebook page here.  I got a little backward twisty this time.

Missing in Action ~~~ Now I'm Back

If you follow this blog, the you probably discovered that the owner of this blog is incompetent when it comes to using the Blogger system.   I tried to set this up with my own URL and it backfired. Sorry. It took me about a month to figure out what was wrong.  (Go ahead and say it, I am.) What a  BONEHEAD!
Anyway, I am back now....look for some new posts in the next few days as I get caught back up.
