So many seeds, so little time!
Wednesday, 05 Oct 11 Rainy 18°C / 64°F
So in my renewed gardening frenzy, I’ve been buying seeds like a madman. I thought I’d lay them all out to try and figure out where to start. Well, it hasn’t helped.
I’m panicking, seeing the days of spring zooming by, and still so much to get out before it’s too late. Not that the weather is helping. Rain, and 20 degree maximums, not ideal for warm weather crops.
The main photo is the whole collection, and then we have the individual sets from 1) Green harvest (arrived about 2 weeks ago), 2) Phoenix Seeds (which arrived yesterday), old seeds we had from 2007, and the last lot we inherited from others, some with expiry dates back to the 1990’s!!
I feel I should do a pot luck throwout of the old ones down in our thistle infested area, and see if they can outgrow the thistles. That’s gotta be better than just throwing them away, doesn’t it?
The rest it’s a race against time and space to plants the ones that should have been planted already, balance time & temperature to get the ones that should have been planted but it’s not warm enough, do the hard slog to prepare garden beds for those that need to be planted direct, and decide which ones are best held off maybe for next season.
Not that I’m complaining. I’m in gardening nirvana at the moment, like a kid in a lolly shop, or the monkey with his hand stuck in the nut jar. Would you believe, I also have two plant deliveries due today or tomorrow, one of which also includes more seeds?!!
Rain, rain, go away…..
