It was a day of arrivals at Troll Bridge Farm. J15 got a letter in the mail this afternoon, informing her that she has been accepted into a two week art program in Minneapolis in June. I'm a bit nervous about letting her go to MN by herself at 16 years old, but she will be somewhat supervised, living in the dorms and taking classes all day. She will also earn college credit and this is a school she has been looking into as she hopes to go into graphic design.
Another arrival today was my greenhouse. I know- it's not Mother's Day quite yet but V got the message that it had arrived and we could pick it up. It is now stored carefully in it's packing boxes in the shop until we figure out where it will go. Hmm, now where to put it.....
The final arrival was a packet of seeds for me. My Edamame seeds arrived today. I wasn't expecting quite so many- but, I guess it is a garden trial...
Nothing fancy here!
I have 6 packets of Gardensoy (12, 24, 32, 41, 42 and 43). Don't you just love the variety names. I'll have to see which grow best here. It could be fun- an experiment!
Now, it's time to go to sleep- I have to work tomorrow. Then, on to plant sale and gardening dreams.....
Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. What a great Mail day! Congrats to your daughter at getting accepted to the school. She will be fine mom. I know I had a reservations about letting our daughter go away to a Track Seminar for 2 weeks. It was only 35 minutes away, but I worried anyway. She was with her 2 coaches and other girls from around the state. So! I know how you must feel. Happy Mother's Day! Hope you have a great day. I will leave for mom's around 11 today. My sister is coming up from Virginia and we're all spending the night...will be fun...debbie

  2. Happy Mom's day--I'll be watching how the green house works for you -with some jealousy but next year...
    I have been looking at the permaculture books -was Mollison's Permaculture: A designer's handbook mentioned? It is a hardcover textbook but I think I might rather have one definative text rather than several softcover peripherals... Have a great weekend!

  3. Yay for Minneapolis! (I had to give a shout out to my homeland, lol!) She will do great, mom! And how cool is that new greenhouse, can't wait to see it. You will so love that Edamame, you can NEVER grow enough, trust me!


Glad you stopped in. I would love to hear from you.
