The wind knowed alot of pine cones down to the ground. I wanted to take a picture of all the Dandelion seed heads; but, the wind took those away to.
Finaly the clouds began to pour and what did I do?
I let the clouds water my tomatoes for me, they are strong enough to withstand a little rain and wind.
This post was added to a blog hop, kinda like a sock hop; but, the poodle skirts have goats and chickens on them. Dandelions House Home Arts was today's host.
I have also posted on the Farm Friend Friday at Verde Farm. Hop over there now to view beautiful and funny pictures of the interesting creatures they raise.

I have searched allover to find Brussels Sprouts being grown, they do not seem to be very popular. Hopefully I will be able to get these in the ground soon.

Cover the seeds gently with loose dry soil. Gently cover each seeds, do not move the soil to much because you can carry seeds from one place to another. Re-water the finished layer to settle the soil and to begin germination.
Nurseries start their plants from seed and some plants are pre-grown and purchased from a corporate greenhouse*. I have a few of the trays that came from the corporate greenhouse and I love them. The cells are approximately the size of a quarter and are perfect for slow growing plants like tomatoes and peppers.
Now back to watering. To make your own seedling irrigator you will need:
- A thin plastic bottle(the soft sides make it easy to squeeze)
- Same screw-top from bottle
- One thumbtack
