Seed arrived.

Seed arrived.

My friends have arrived to the house thanks to Olga.[Ternie.]I have been keeping a close eye on the post expecting the parcel and just last Friday that was answered.I was delighted to see some herb seed of Basil thyme,parsley,along with sweetcorn of a different flavour to our own.The tomato seed pkts were made up of pear shaped yellow,orange,black and with the yellow,of the usual shape also some brands of tea..I will give the full details and names to my journal another time.The seed pkts have all been left into their areas in the herbs,fruits,and other brands.Im waiting in interest to introduce those seeds to my garden and get them all happy with each other here on Irish soil.

Thanks again Olga,[Ternie]     John.

What a selection. I love the look of the giant purple tomato! Must post up details of my package from Olga. I was overwhelmed by the number of seeds!

Oh to be so organised can see the recycled kitchen is already being put to great use.

My, you are going to be very busy in 2010.  Look very interesting.

Just reading Rachel's journal and she received a package from Olga also. You will have to compare notes now and see who's seeds grow the best Ha! Ha!

I've started to send you names of all this, sorry for delay, I was lazy to translate instructions ;))  I would like to see ornamental corn - I'm sure it will have good conditions to grow there in Oldcastle, much better than here in the north.

Our football team won 2:1 (against Slovenia in HOME match), I'm not satisfied absolutely! Hope our boys will brace themselves up till next Wednesday...
