Black Friday Shopping

http://pwconserve.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/insects-are-our-friends-red-flat-bark-beetle/

Gonna be big this year. Heck, I'm already up and at it. 

Well, actually I'm waiting for Liz to help me with this gargantuan project. 

Oh, the hours freezing on some sidewalk in front of some mega-store. Oh, the jostling, and the crowds and the rudeness. Oh, the tents, perched in doorways. Oh, the hype and hoopla.

Oh, the greed.

Oh, wait. We got an online coupon for 15% off from Pinetree Garden Seeds so we are going to sit here in the (relatively, there are dogs, and cats and men and all) peaceful kitchen and order us up some herbs to try making some herb boxes to sell this spring.

And some cluster grande tomatoes. You know those ones they sell in the market? Four or five to a stem, nice and red and round, yes those. We grow them most years and we are out of seed.

And zucchetta. We are out of zucchetta seed. Can't have that.

All you will hear is the clicking of the keyboard and the discussion of what we can't live without right now and what will have to wait for our spring order.

And the slurping of coffee. If we are not careful, you might hear that.

Found this guy on the porch the other day. No worries, not letting him near the ice cream
He was an amazingly pretty color

It appears that this sale is open to all, so if you need some seeds, hit the website. We have had real good luck with them over a number of years. Lots of interesting oddities, heirloom seeds, and mixes, such as the lettuce mixes, which are phenomenal. And no, they are not paying me...they don't even know me.

I like your kind of Black Friday shopping and thanks for the reminder about Zuccetta (sp?) seeds, You have raved about it so much I have to try them.

Throwback at Trapper Creek said...

Yeah, I went to the feed store to stock up before the snow flies, and gee, there was only the usual customers, free hot coffee, and good service.

Not much point of battling a crowd for more stuff I don't need.

Only ever seen one of those bugs.

And ya had me worried about Black Friday forays . . .

Glad to see you're just rustling the pages of seed catalogs.
Happy Zuccetta shopping.

Jan, I hope you enjoy them as much as we do. Some people don't like the nutty flavor quite as much as we do....and they do take up a lot of space.

Nita, except for a quick trip out for some cold meds for our sick daughter we pretty much stayed home, which is about normal for almost every day. lol

Linda, as I said to Jan, I hope you like them as much as we do. They have a bit different texture and flavor than most summer squash and they take up a lot of space, but we love them. long season too, I start them real early indoors.

Cathy, thanks! lol
