I washed up all the fresh veggies and fruits I bought yesterday. There was so much in the produce department I wanted to buy but I wouldn't be able to eat it all before it spoiled. There were artichokes and asparagus and there were probably strawberries from Florida but I didn't even look! You could just tell it was all so fresh. Here's what I did get.........seedless red grapes.....I've been snacking on them all afternoon........so good!
Some kind of 'new' melon...I thought it was just a cantalope...I'll like it as I love melons of all types.........
radishes and a cucumber that's in the frig along with some organic avocados (another first at Walmart)
These radishes had all their leafy green tops but I trimmed them up for salads........
and of course the apples for the Irish Apple cake which did not get made today.......
Instead I went outside it was so gorgeous and prepped my seed tray which took more time than you can imagine............the seed starting mix is so light that you have to keep pushing it into the little holes for the seeds and then water and leave it and then go back (tomorrow) and see if it has sunken. I have watered in the past and it just bubbles up and goes all over the soil is so light....lots of vermiculite. Back in the day I used to make my own and maybe I'll get to that point again but for now I just want to get some seeds going. I know I'm already late.
I'm already with craft sticks to mark them and my seeds...although I know have more somewhere....I just saw them...now if I can only remember where?
I know I've shown this before....a gal I order from up in Iowa sells these for around $10 I think? Anyway, it is the nuts for misting plants and perfect for the seed starting mix as it doesn't drown it or blow it all over the place. Her website is here
She uses it for ironing and quilting but also tea dyeing which I didn't think of! Plus, yarn dyeing.....oh, the possibilites are endless! I love mine and I may order another one. You can read more about it on her website. She's a great gal and her customer service is awesome!
