A is for ...


Asparagus, Artichoke, Amaranth, Aster, and Apple mint.

There aren't a whole lot of flowers, veggies, and herbs that begin with the letter A, at least not ones I could think of. That was a bit tough (OK, I tried to cheat and looked at my favorite seed websites, but didn't find any more A's to help me out). I'm sure something will come to me after I've posted this, but for now that's my list and I'm sticking to it.


I'm listing plants for this week's Alphabe-Thursday because I am trying very hard to narrow down my seed order today, and I have "seeds on the brain". If I order everything that I have listed, I'll need 3 acres of garden to plant it all (which is obviously not happening, thank goodness...that would require far too much work from me). But, everything that I've chosen sounds so wonderful, I'm having a hard time eliminating things from the list. Anyone have an idea of how to narrow it down to say ... an acres worth of planting? Not that I have that much garden space, either; but I can dream, and share seeds with my friends (which I'll post about later).


OK, this week's post is going to have to be short and sweet, but I'll have more time to think about the letter B! B...boy there are lots of B words...some of which my children consider to be "bad words"...oh, but that's for next week! Now that reminds me of another A word, too; but it really goes with next week's word anyway, so you'll just have to wait.

For more Alphabe-Thursday fun with the letter A, visit Jenny Matlock today!

  6. Oh the curse of the seed ordering. I mean, seriously, how can pick between each variety? I need about 43 acres and even then I would be lamenting I couldn't have them all, in every color! Thanks for playing! A+ for you!

  7. I have 2 raised bed organoc garden plots outside my classroom window for my pre-k kids to plant and tend. I think there are many important lessons learned through gardening and tending flowers. Glad I am participating in this 26 week blogfeast!

  8. I'm trying to learn as much as I can about gardening since I'm moving to a house with tons of bed space and have always wished for the opportunity. This post definitely jibes with what I have on my mind today. Thanks for stopping by! :-)

  10. I wish I could garden, but I'm cursed with a black thumb. Eating, however, I can do with no problem, so I think you should plant asparagus and artichokes and I'll help you get rid of the abundance! Kathy

  11. I have a stack of seed catalogs about a foot deep on my coffee table. I need to start my orders soon that is for sure. Thanks for stopping by, I have certainly found out there are a lot of women with the middle name of Ann or Anne.

  13. Oh, I thought of one of my very favorite things on earth - ARUGULA...I can almost eat it on anything, alone, in salads, soups, stews, on sandwiches...but not on hot fudge sundaes.

  14. There must be a lot of us out there yearning for the warmer weather for gardening. I just got my order in for some strawberry plants. I knew I needed to get them. Now I'm like you...what else do I NEED & not just WANT!

  18. Here I am late to the first Alphabe-Thursday class. Please don't tell Mrs. Matlock.
    I don't have the seed ordering dilemma, mine is making the time to work in my garden now that the recent freeze took a toll. I admire you for planning ahead. Good luck. I've not been very successful with starting from seeds. I always buy the starters from the garden center. Good luck. I look forward to what you'll share for B.
