That Time of Year Again--Winter Sowing
Last week, I bought some plastic containers at the dollar store and picked up some potting soil at a local nursery. Today, I told Jeff that I was hoping to finally sort through my seeds and hopefully plant them. He surprised me by saying he would help if I did it inside at the kitchen table. I covered the table and filled the containers with soil outside (after drilling holes for drainage). It actually turned out not to be as messy as I'd feared. We did a great job containing any mess...what little there was.
I've never been this organized with my seeds before! Over the past couple of years, I've just sprinkled the various species of wildflower seeds I'd collected in the same containers. I figured they'd be mixed together in the meadow anyway. I do feel good being better organized this year.
As good as that looks, I still have a LOT left...and a lot that is not organized--nor labelled.
I can't wait until I have all of these wildflowers and grass growing out on our property...building habitat and attracting more wildlife...and more beauty for us to enjoy.
