I need to finish what I started - like digging over
this veggie bed that did not get used this season
The reality is that I have seeds falling out on the floor every time I open up my fridge door to grab some food. Why in the world do I want to order more of them?! It's true that I used the last of the chamomile this year, and there are no more zinnias or bachelor buttons but it's also true that I have leftover sunflower seeds, borage and nasturtiums. Not to mention the seeds I bought last season and never even planted!
Worse still I have packages of gifted seeds that have been languishing for years. I think I've discovered a major issue here. I hoard seeds. I buy them, receive them as gifts and collect seed from my own plants and I don't plant nearly enough of them in the ground. It's time to change that habit. Now I have run out of some vegetable seed and I will have extra space in the veggie garden this year so I'm not cutting out a seed order completely. But I'm vowing right now to put a maximum limit of $20 on this years seed order. And further, that order cannot contain any flower seed. That's a good start I think on my budget and besides, less money on flower seeds means there's more money for new trees right?
Chamomile and bachelor buttons looked great in the garden
this season but I'll try something different next year
