Since I was ordering them and paying shipping anyway, I went ahead and added three unsexed Dark Brahma chicks to the order. Total price was under $100.
I asked for ship dates 6/24 or 7/22. I guess we will just wait to see when we will get them.
I finally got some more winter sowing done. It's about time, right?
Umpqua Broccoli - Said to be one of the best open pollinated varieties available, so we're going to give it a shot. I've never been able to grow broccoli, despite many attempts. Maybe this year will be different.
King Theodore Nasturtium - This is the variety #5 picked out. Nasturtium is edible, but it's also pretty. I'm not sure where I'll put it, but I'm sure we can find a good spot.
White Acorn Squash and Table Queen Acorn Squash - #1 asked for acorn squash this year, so I'm growing these two varieties. I have a couple other varieties in the collection, but I figured two at a time should be a good way to try a few and figure out what types we like and want to grow again.
Blue Hubbard Squash - These are seeds from the one we grew a few years ago. It was delicious. These seeds are likely cross pollinated because that year we also grew acorn, buttercup, butternut, and spaghetti squash and mutibile zucchini. Come to think of it, I think the white acorn squash seeds are from the same growing season - we may get some interesting results. This one will be a bit of a genetics science experiment, but it'll still be edible, so it's all good.
Tomorrow I will be setting more eggs in the incubator. I want to do a bunch of duck eggs and the really dark chicken eggs. So far no pips on the eggs set to hatch tomorrow.
