Today I received a mail from Chris author of Under the Mulberry Tree blog and under the Alice Springs seedsavers some rare seeds: Melon~Sweet Turkish Leopard, Maize~Mozambique, Carrots~ Afgan purple and yellow. I am not even sure how this vegetables or fruit look like and that is part of the fun growing them will be. The melon picture is in Chris title collage fourth picture.I plan to sow the maize seeds end next month or early December so it won’t cross pollinate with my other sweet corn that is growing in the veggie patch now. Another reason with the long gap is that I have just direct sow some corn seed last week that has not yet pop up. I always wanted to grow other than orange colour carrot in the garden and now I have the purple and yellow carrot seeds in my collection. Chris wrote a note that it is better for these carrot seeds to be sown when daylight decreases so I will wait until end of summer to sow the carrot seeds. Chris is so generous. I was surprised with the amount of seeds I received.
This is the first ever dragonfly I have seen since I moved here. I hope more will come and enjoy their stay in our garden.
