I hope my thumb gets greener!

Today, I went online at Amazon and purchased the book, Seed to Seed: Seed Saving and Growing Techniques for Vegetable Gardeners.

This is all very new to me - propagating and saving seeds from home-grown garden veggies. I've always considered myself a modest gardener, so any and all information is very very helpful!

Last night, I went online and ordered several heirloom vegetable seeds. I DO plan to share my seeds with family and friends. This is what I ordered:

2 varieties of green beans
3 varieties of bell peppers (red, yellow, green)
3 varieties of tomatoes (2 red, 1 orange)
1 red hot serrano pepper
1 cucumber
1 zucchini
several varieties of lettuce (tossed in free with order)

This picture is for Aunt Patty... Pamela wanted to show her the quilt she had made for her doll, completely handsewn. If you look closely, you can see that the quilt was made from the scraps of her pioneer dress/pinafore (pictured above in the new blog heading.)

This is her first quilt, and she plans to make another one for her other American Girl doll. What fun!!!

Tell Pamela I am very proud of her! By the way, where did you get the pinafore pattern?
