Plants from afar

It has been a good week for getting things in the mail…

Many thanks to Donna for being kind enough to send some elephant garlic cloves! :) They are now planted under my Enterprise and Evereste apple trees. Looking forward to seeing if they do as well as the other garlics and leeks in the orchard.

I also received several packets of seeds from a Japanese friend – pumpkins, shiso (perilla) and a type of tatsoi (I think). I’ve been interested in trying the kabocha type pumpkins for a number of years since a neighbor had rave reviews of them. The shiso will be a nice addition to our herb and salad garden. fun times with sushi ahead!
