Plant Tour








As I checked my plants this evening, I thought you might enjoy a quick “tour”. With all the rain we’ve had, the gardens, grass and containers are all looking very healthy.

The shop will be closed July 5 to extend our staff’s holiday weekend.
Because of the Big Event, there will not be a one hundred bolt sale July 1-14. The next hundred bolt sale will start July 15.

    I really enjoyed your blog and all the lovely pictures. You are inspiring me to try so many new sewing projects, I don’t know where to start! I was actually looking for some stitching patterns or books to buy. I am enjoying embroidery right now. Primitive things. I found an old Country Threads magazine in my stash of “save” magazines and it had a cute stitchery pattern. I will keep looking, but I just wanted you to know I enjoyed your blog.

    Fun to see all your plants ~ when I came to Assisted Living, a friend brought my plants to her house…all except my 30-year old cactus plants. I’m afraid to say that lack of care…my old plants have bit the dust (*sigh).

    Your plants are doing great! I put my hoya you sent outside and one of the leaves curled up. Any advice? When you mentioned the hyacinth beans I remembered I had some from a friend. I soaked mine and they sprouted quick. Mine are not a big as yours, but they are on their way.
    I first saw the hyacinth bean plant growing at Monticello in Virginia. They were growing up a huge stick teepee. I fell in love with them. Good old Thomas Jefferson. You can buy the seeds in the garden shop. They sell lots of heirloom seeds and plants.

    Mary…thought about your love of goats today while reading an article in my birth hometown newspaper. RENT A RUMINANT located on Vashon Island, WA is a business with 100 goats (various breeds). A town rented the goats to clear a steep sloping area near a pond. The business owner has named each goat and one named “Ernie” has starred in a TACO TIME commercial. When the goats reach around 10 years of age they are “retired” to a loving home. Article goes on to share that a goat’s digestive system sterilizes any seeds from the vegetation they eat. Love it when I learn something new.

    Your plants are just beautiful!! It breaks my heart that I must get rid of mine as we have just started to winter in Texas & can’t take them with me & too hard to find someone to ‘babysit’ them!!& the house must go also & make an apartment work for us! Just so I have room for ALL of my sewing “stuff”!!
