I’d be lying to you if I said that I’ve been hard at work in the garden the past two weeks striving hard to get things cleaned up and get lots planted for fall. That hasn’t been then case. The kids have been fighting off fall allergies and 24 hour bugs, along with myself fighting off allergies. Plus, I’ve been enthralled with the last weeks of the baseball season and the epic collapse of the Texas Rangers. I haven’t put any thought into the garden and it shows. I’m behind on getting everything planted.
To be honest, I almost do care. After the summer, I’m actually ready for a hard freeze and everything to go dormant. To sit on the couch with a cup of coffee looking through seed catalogs and imagining for next year.
I’m ready for a break. I’m tired of pulling weeds. And fighting bugs. And failed crops.
But then I think of why I do it, so I’ll press on.
Last week I briefly stated that I was going to do a giveaway.
A small stash of seeds that I have collected this year:
Sunflower seed (large eating kind)
Zinnia, violet queen
I’d offer more from my homegrown stash, but there isn’t enough to go around.
