WE GOT FLOWERS! and I just don't know. I am uncertain if I missed these beauties last year because I was thinking the flowers should be red or orange, which are the colors I had expected on an aloe plant. My memory is that they turned brown and dead quickly, nothing like this. On Friday I sent a student on an internet search to find me yellow aloe flowers, and he did, but he did not find any variegated ones. How cool are these!
I had a student working hard to get our seeds posted on folia but have not gotten around to list which one were planted. It is becoming a bit obvious that they are keeping some useful features back from those who don't give any money, so I will likely join one of these days, maybe even tonight. The First Lady on the left is one of our nine hopes for a pre-graduation tomato. We will nurse it inside for another month and then get it into the greenhouse in April. Speaking of tomatoes, we planted a bunch for our spring plant sale and we also planted our peppers this week. Yes, a bit early for around here, but we will pot them up and keep them in the greenhouse till Mother's Day has come and gone. Many folk seem unimpressed that we are shooting for a red tomato by early June. Too much time at grocery stores, not enough time in gardens????
