Our Seeds have ARRIVED!

I LOVE Johnny’s Select Seeds.

We, LITERALY place our seed order yesterday and THEY ARRIVED TODAY. Now, I get that we’re in Maine and so are they, but seriously, wowzas.

Well, most of them arrived at least. Our Onion starts aren’t going to be coming til the end of the month(which is when we’d be able to plant them anyway), and our Lemon Cucumbers and Tiren Paste Tomatoes were back ordered. But they’ll be in soon enough. img_3483

And we did have one little glitch- MrGillis ordered 10 packs of Zucchini seeds instead of 1- but Johnny’s excellent customer service remedied that situation very quickly. We sent them back 9 of the packages this morning and should see a credit to our card in the next few days.


So a list of what we got –

I knit, crochet, make jewelry and sew. MrGillis builds, doing everything from our plumbing to our mechanical to our renovations. We are both active members of our little community. We both take care of the plants and animals. He weeds, I harvest. He spreads manure, I plant. We raise multiple breeds of chickens for eggs and meat. We have a herd of Alpacas that we shear every year for their beautiful fiber, which we then have milled into ultra luxurious yarn. We make our own maple syrup, preserves and pickles. We raise bees for honey and herbs for medicine. We also raise pigs for meat and fun. We are the parents of two young children, and consider that our most important job.
