Starting with the eye candy, here’s an antique ad from J.A. Simmers. I’m not entirely sure that would make me want to grow the company’s carrots, but I might invite them in for a cup of tea, or absinthe.
This is an amendment to the list of this year’s planting posted below. I decided to try for office toms and carted a couple of plants to work. So send growing waves to Isis Cherry and Black Plum, which now are joining me in my daily labor.
Also I found a couple more pots big enough for peppers last night, and since I haven’t yet given away all my orphan veggies I ended up planting another Paprika and Jalapeno. Can’t ever have too many of those since I pickle the Jals and grind up the Paprikas for spice, which is so neuron-poppingly delicious that I must grow more, more, more—blahahahahaaaaaaa.
