Quotable Sunday 12/16/2012

It is all in.....

It is all in, is a nice little saying when you are a farmer.  It is all planted.  It is all potted up.  It is all seeded for this point in the season.  Is it all done?  Pretty close.

                 Planted hundreds more of fancy daffodils, singles, doubles, and the big old standard King Alfred.  Planted a few hundred tulips also.
                         The tips of their noses are just poking out.
                                   Ranunculus is up and growing nicely.
                             Crates of anemones are moving along.
               Cuttings of scented geraniums are sprouting.

Some seedlings are planted and are growing well.

So it is all in for bulbs and tubers and some seeds, but it is not all in.... the dahlias are not dug and brought in yet. That's another few more days.

Winter is the time of promise because there is so little to do - or because you can now and then permit yourself the luxury of thinking so.  ~Stanley Crawford


  1. eeek! i just love peeking inside your greenhouses!!!!! scented geranium cuttings? when did you take them?

  2. It's a good feeling when it's all in! I had not been thinking about it, but now I'm excited for daffodils. (: Looking good!
