Stuff planted on, yes, Friday the 13th

This is mostly for my own records really, but if you want to read it knock yourself out! ☺

This season's second batch of tomatoes is a couple of weeks later than recommended...oh well...

Most veg and herb seeds are organic and/or heirloom seeds from the wonderful folks at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.

Scattered a bunch of wild flowers randomly all over the place.
Scattered handfull of milkweed seeds.
Scattered Spider Flower
Scattered Black Eyed Susans

Scattered a bunch of Pigeon Peas to naturally increase our soil's nitrogen and help aerate the soil.

A couple of blood orange seeds, just to see what comes out of it.

Note to self: Do not order seeds from Seeds of Change again. Great stuff but their seed packs are the most beautiful and most useless thing I have ever laid hands on. All seeds get stuck inside the package and they are nearly impossible to take out due to what seems to be static or some kind of black magic stuff. Don't quote me on the latter. The Seeds of Change folks are wonderful but they are not there when I am bi**ching about my inability to free the seeds. Ugh.

Photos tomorrow...
