    Default Spring Planting!

    Awens to All:

    I have done my First Planting for the upcoming Spring.

    Last Fall, I went to Lytton BC to get some Roots and Seeds of Milkweed which is a Plant that Monarch Butterflies.

    This morning, I planted 54 Milkweed Seeds into an 18 Cup Egg Carton with 3 Seeds per Egg Cup.

    Then I planted the Korean Wild Sesame Seeds that I managed to find and put them 2 each into a Dozen Egg Cups.

    Then a Shucked my 5 Corn Cobs that I had let go to Seed and put 12 Corn Seeds into 12 Egg Cups. I am doing a Test on the Corn Seeds to see if they come up. If they do Germinate, then I will take the rest of the several hundred Seeds and plant them into my Allotment.

    I bought 2 big packages of Green Pea Seeds, Cayenne Pepper Seeds and Cabbage Seeds. I will start the Cayenne Pepper and Cabbage Seeds in Egg Cups next Weekend.

    So that is my Spring Planting for today!

    And last weekend, I did a Planting of an Irish Heather that I recovered from a Clients Garden who had Hired Us to dig it out of his Front Garden.

    I Planted it into one of the Parking Lot Garden Beds that surround my Legion's Parking Lot.

    Here it is:

    Joy!

    The First Korean Wild Sesame Seed has come up!:



    I was only able to find 20 or so Korean Wild Sesame Seeds last Fall. So many Korean Wild Sesame Plants were not producing Seed to the point that I was worried that some Monsanto Terminator Pollin had Cross Contaminated all the Korean Wild Sesame Plants causing them to Not Produce Seed.

    But Life Carries On!

    We have an allotment, so far we have sweet corn, chillies, tomatoes, squash, pumpkins, sunflowers,, kohl rabi, broad beans, peas... loads of other stuff in trays in the greenhouse. Just waiting for the last frosts to pass to plant out. We have cherry, apple, pear and plum trees, red and black currant bushes, rasberry canes and gooseberry bushes. We’ve planted out lettuce, radish and cabbage and loads of onions and garlic, soon be time for first early potatoes to go in. We are currently sorting out a big poly tunnel to grow grapes and peppers in.
