Hoing and Hoeing


Ho: Slang A prostitute

Hoe: A tool chiefly for digging up weeds, and arranging the earth about plants in fields and gardens.

You've all probably heard by now that the Greek Church in response to a potential new law that would give rights to cohabiting couples, declared that all relationships except for those joined in a Greek Orthodox Church were prostitution.

Oh man! Did I just get called a prostitute? Well that made me kind of sad. I took time out from my whoring ways to order some seeds online, since I'm surrounded by the new life of spring and wanted to create shiny new things, despite being as whorrific as I am.

So far I have ordered the following seeds:
  • Lemongrass


  • Kaffir lime


  • Fragrant sweet pea


  • Plumeria (we had a giant tree of this Back Home and I never appeciated it)


  • Organic tomato


  • Organic corn, normal and rainbow


  • Organic sweet pepper


  • Organic cucumber


  • Organic green beans
Being doubly condemned by my own religion and the Greek Orthodox Church, I'm going to create my own little Garden of Eden right here on Earth. So na!

Where do you order your seeds from ? Especially
Lemongrass, lime and fragrant sweet pea ?

I am about to start developing my roof garden (full sun, dry etc) but wanting to do it well and colourfully!

ps. you are not condemned in my book and I am goddess! Ha ha.

Hey DD, thanks for that! I ordered the lemongrass seeds from Thomson Morgan http://seeds.thompson-morgan.com/uk/en/product/958/2, the lime and plumeria from Trade Winds Fruit http://www.tradewindsfruit.com/order.htm and the rest were from ebay. For the sweet pea search under Matucana.

The plumeria and lime seeds arrived today, hence I was feeling inspired!

That's what I like about the church. Just when you think they can't be any more socially retarded, they surprise you.
