I am joining Carole for Three on Thursday today! And this week, my brain has been full of dreams… garden dreams!! Which have been aptly inspired by the Baker Seed Catalog!
Even though they have an incredibly short bloom time, I have a crazy love for poppies. And, these poppies are filling my dreams!
In the “Neighbor Garden Wars” my neighbor has been killing it with the array of sunflowers that he plants, however, I think these might help me win BIG this summer!
Although, it is usually All Tomatoes in our the garden – I am enamored of this celery and this spinach so I am contemplating how to maximize our minimal space to include these!
What is filling your thoughts?
Holy cow! Is it too early to dream of a garden??? Love that celery! Those sunflowers are awesome. The spinach might have a chance in a dish garden over here. 🙂 And the poppies!!! Beauteous!!!
If you want some big sunflowers, I’ll be happy to send you some seeds that we saved from our mammoth blooms from a couple of years ago (seriously, they were like seven feet tall).
I have never grown celery, but someone I follow on IG said that if you put the bottom of a head of celery in the ground after you’ve cut off the stems, it will grow more, so I might try it!
Garden dreams loom large in February when the seed catalogs arrive! John’s already ordered and received our seeds, and is all ready to start rototilling for a new garden in MD. (I’ve convinced him that Feb. is a little early.) I’m seriously considering that spinach; amaranth that looks like begonia leaves sounds interesting!
Oooh poppies! They bring back such great memories. My grandmother always had poppies growing in her garden. I just love them!
Those are some big ass sunflowers! And the color of those poppies is gorgeous. Have fun dreaming about your garden!
What a vicarious thrill I get from others’ gardens. My own thumb is the Thumb of Death.
I had no idea Asian Celery was easy to grow … and how pretty! (also, what Allison said!)
I’m thinking too about gardening now that I have a real house! Unfortunately, my veggies and herbs will have to be in containers which is fine as we have a huge deck. I am thinking I’ll be able to plant hydrangeas, black eyed susan and echinacea in front of the house. My “goal” is to start prepping these areas. I have a wonderful summer cocktail that includes lemon juice, gin, st. germaine, sparkling water and tarragon- so yea-guess I’d better figure out where to put that tarragon!
Ironically, those poppies are sold out right now (or else I would have bought some, too!)
