Wintersowing Anticipation

Sunday, 18 Jan 09 Snow -2°C / 29°F

I have spent time over the last week, working on sorting seeds, making the dreadful decision of “do I really need this plant” and cleaning jugs.

Tonight, the just have been cut…seeds are happily sitting on the table, and I cant wait to get started !

My good friend Sue will be arriving in the morning, to help me wintersow my seeds.

I am just so excited, I cant sleep…lol

To lay here and dream of how amazing my garden will look this summer with the new additions. This will be the year when my yard actually looks like I have gardens, I am just more excited then a kid at Christmas !!

It will be so nice to get my hands into the dirt, and to hold those precious seeds in my hands. Wintersowing has been the best therapy for me, and now to have a friend to do it with, just makes it all the better !

    Hi Kym,
    I sowed just one little old container today,i am out of soil!!!!!!Gurrrrrrrr
    Plus, i am patiently waiting for the seed swap of Patties,then i will be so,so,sow busy.
    You are indeed a lucky girl to have a friend who enjoys WSing too,my best friend,loves to garden, but does not talk garden talk,or sow seed,so i find every one on the WSing forum a great group of friends to talk to,it would be nice,however,to sow with some one.
    My hubby just laughes at me for being on the computer so much.
    Have fun today,laugh hard and loud!I wanna hear you.
