Speaking of Seeds

My brother keeps asking what we plant as he tries to figure out what he wants to try. He planted his first garden last year and was almost as excited about it as I was. This year we will be planting:2013-04-04 09.51.15

    don\’t you love the names? I always wanted the job of naming paint colors, but seeds would work!

    I want to grow Kiss me Over the Garden Gate and Love Lies Bleeding. The names are great.

      I grew Love lLies Bleeding back in Omaha, because of the name. It was a big and unruly plant. Not what I had hoped for, but I guess it kind of fits the name.
