yellow osteospermumIt’s snowing outside as I type this. I didn’t really think that it would snow today. The forecast called for flurries. It’s a big flurry.

The availability hasn’t changed much. We have a few more baskets available and more color showing on what we do have ready. Since it’s after 3 pm on Friday and it’s snowing, I am just going to let the pictures speak for themselves. Mostly.

I do want to show you some new items that were not on our original item list and were late additions. We are trialing these to see how well they sell. New for this spring is our Quart Premium Perennials. We are offering these varieties of Heucheras in the quart size. The cost for these are $3.10.

They are: Cassandra, Hercules, Harvest Limon Chiffon, Pinot Blanco, Stormy Seas and Crimson Curls (not pictured). We hope you like them.

Here are the rest of the pictures. Please note that we are pulling from 2 crops of snapdragons. Also the marigolds should have a lot more color by Tuesday or Wednesday along with everything else. A lot of comments in our availability are prognosticated comments on what I think a lot of these will look like next week. When I am not sure, I input a conservative comment then check them again on Monday.

The Fuchsia have buds popping out all over the place. I will probably be adding a lot of inventory in on Monday but for now I only put in a few. I want to see how many bloom over the weekend.

The squashes are ready now, but the other items in both 1204 and #4 Charley’s Veggies are in inventory for Wednesday. I think almost all of them will be ready by then except for maybe the okra and cantaloupe.
