Seeds: A reality check.

My drawing yesterday was a happy image of how getting packages of seeds is like having a mailbox full of plants in the middle of winter.

This is the reality of my current seed situation:

Yes, this is a real, non-staged shot of my dining room table as I tried to sort through what seeds to direct sow, which to start early inside... this is AFTER I removed a dozen or so packets I decided I wasn't going to have room for. I started counting them up... and gave up when I reached 100. I think I overdid it a bit. Just a bit.

Overdid it? Yes, that looks like a lot. I use an Excel spreadsheet to keep track of all my seeds.

One can never have too many seeds. Yes, I live in a very special reality of my own making :)

Wow. I had (have?) a tendency to order seeds that I don't get around to sowing. The cool thing about a lot seeds is their longevity. Currently I have seedlings of four tropical species I started several months ago, from seeds 1 to 5+ years old. Maybe next year?

Carol,
I actually use an excel sheet too... but somehow it doesn't look like so much on the computer as when your spread the all out on the table!
Tina,
I think our special realities are very similar! I'm a little overwhelmed -- but mostly excited!

I like this specific Plastic chairs website! They have lots of deals on all kinds of things for the house for example issues for the kitchen area, workplace, restroom, and so forth. I've purchased many things, and that I happen to be pleased with everything. A lot of their goods are made perfectly and greatest of, the price is appropriate
