Last of the seed orders.

The Cherokee Purple and Green Shiso seeds arrived today.  If i can continue reigning myself in,  this is all the seeds for the year.  The only thing left to arrive will be the Adirondack Blue potato starts that should come in the Spring.

The seeds from the eBay seller look good,  nice and clean seeds, little to no chaff, plenty of them too.

Its been too chaotic so far today to get those pots i set out filled,  so no starting seeds yet.  A few days delay won't hurt since i am on the cusp of the starting dates.

I hope to get it started and completed this weekend at least.

We also got the weather station figured out.  Hubby went out and got a second one from Mardens so we could both have receivers.  It ended up costing us about $9 for the two sets because we had a gift card.
The station shows wind speed, direction, humidity, barometric pressure, indoor and outdoor temps,   forecast icon and calculates windchill.
Its nice to have this information at a glance.

Gosh, I never even thought about buying seeds off of eBay. Thanks for the tip. Oh, and the weather station sounds pretty neat. :)

I've had really good luck buying plants and seeds off eBay.

Weather stations are fun & interesting. My husband is the vegetable gardener around here and he loves reading garden catalogs, saving seeds, and of course, growing veggies & fruit. I get to preserve the produce. I think you're definitely on your way to a productive gardening season.

If i can keep up with those weeds and we don't get "woodchucked" i'm hoping for a great summer!
