Ema I got the seeds!!
Walla! I’ve been haunting my mailbox ever since my Ema said she’d sent some seeds and stuff. The stuff is some awesome spices that I can’t get here and that she got from Central Market in Austin. The seeds … oh my. I am going to be planting collard greens come September. I cannot tell you how much I have been craving these greens. I’m a southern girl and so cannot live without them and have any sort of balance to my world. I’m salivating just at the thought of cooking some up and this is, for sure, the first time in my life I’m looking forward to summer being over. Yeah, I know, it hasn’t started yet, but my desire to be eating some collards is so strong that I wish it were next November or December like right now if not yesterday. And now I will be doing the happy Collard dance when fall rolls around!!!!
I’ve now got way better Rocket (arugula) seeds than you can buy here. Not only is there more than double the number of seeds in this packet but it is an extra zesty variety (yo, a variety!) and specially cultivated to grow in warmer than average climates.
The other little inclusion that has me almost as over the moon as the collard green seeds are the perennial black=eyed Susan seeds. Flowers. Perennial. Blooming in the Fall. Growing in light shade and in full sun. I’m seriously in love. You know what I am planting tomorrow morning! Ema thank you!!!!!!
