5 1/2 Inches of Rain and Seeds Packaged!

This is what 5 1/2 inches or rain will do in just a few hours. Our back property. Our newly planted veggies, actually when I looked at them close they were very green. We will be making a drain ditch this weekend. (I say "We" loosely)
The water rushed down this hill so fast it took the soil with it. Husband just filled it in a while ago. Something else to do tomorrow.

If it hadn't of been raining so hard and fast I wouldn't have kept the girls home and surely wouldn't have stayed inside......

..therefore I would not have gotten this much done!
My wonderful helpers did a fantastic job! Thanks girls.
They ran away after lunch and are hiding in one of their rooms playing Monopoly.

We packaged:
Bell Peppers--Large Green, Red and Yellow--not many yellow, I have more drying.
Cayenne Peppers
Hot Rooster Spur Peppers
Banana Peppers--Sweet and Hot
Big Round Flat Gourds
Purple Coneflowers
Black Eyed Susans
Large White Hibiscus with the Red Center
There are 15 t0 25 seeds per pack except the Gourds I think we put 12 in there and the Black Eyed Susans and Purple Coneflower, we just stuffed some in there , too much time to seperate.
I may have Celosia seeds, maybe. I have Habanero Pepper seeds drying. Going to dry the Large Sunflower Tree seeds too. There is no telling what else I will come up with.
Do Not Be Shy....just let me know and I will send them to you free of charge!!

What a mess that much rain can make if it falls in a sort time. 2 years ago, we had 11 inches in an hour. That was devastating! Good luck with the clean up!

Valerie said...

I am so excited to get my seeds. Thank you so much.I bet my friend Vicki would love some too.

Susie said...

5.5" of rain? That is incredible. I'm sorry all your hard work got washed away and you have to redo. That is never fun. What a great job you guys did with the seeds though. I bet you had fun doing that.

Have a great weekend!

Darla, I'm sure glad you got help with this project! It's so nice of you to share all these seeds. So sorry the rain did so much damage. I hope hubby can fix it! Jean

Leedra said...

Hope the damage wasn't any worse than when you took this pictures. I will be thinking about seeds.

Darla: What a shame that all the rain comes at the same time, what a mess. The rains usually determine our Spring planting time.

Cynthia said...

My goodness that is a lot of rain to fall! I think it is so great that your girls helped you out with your seed packaging. I bet it made the job go faster and was a lot of fun too. Thanks for dropping by my blog again. :)

Ahmet Nuray having lots of special collections in exactly 20 private museum and galleries in Switzerland incorparates his studies in the field of pedagogy with his art.
Being both a pedagogue and having a collection of his own studies in the field of pedagogy, Nuray is mentioned in Switzerland media as it follows.
‘His idea of art is not also life but also sharing. His pieces of work aren’t for decorating but for realizing and touching .Thus, the marble will come to life and whisper its secret.
The artist is mostly deals with in many of his pieces of work.One of his sculpture was appropriated to White House by Mrs.Reagan.
Having a workshop in Tarabya ,Nuray will spend a great deal of his time in Turkey.His ambition is to work for the benefit of Turkish children and to be able to give them free sculpture courses.\bronz+heykeller\
