I said I’d share my garden plan. It’s done so I will. It’s already changed with additional Padron peppers where the Anchos would have been. Now the changes will be reflected in the soil and not on the paper.
I used to order from Shepherd’s Seed Catalog because the illustrations in the catalog were so lovely. One year, when I lived in the frozen Northeast where planning a garden was sometimes all that got you through the winter, for Christmas Mom sent me a gift certificate from Shepherd’s along with this poem, cleverly titled
Choose from the seed catalog:
Echinacea to feed the butterfly’s habits;
Lemon balm to attract the bees and
Exotic lettuce to share with the ghost rabbits;
A pumpkin to ride to the Ball (if we please);
Moonflowers to let us know
Night is not all darkness that drowns,
But fragrance, good company,
And soft bullfrog sounds.
Mom, I’m planting flowers with the vegetables for both of us.
