I'm not addicted...I can quit whenever I want
My seed addiction is under control. I swear! I haven't bought any seeds this year!!
Ok, that's actually because when I was in the store, they didn't have anything interesting. And because I just haven't had time to sit down and page through the seed catalogs as much as I'd like.
I have a list, though.
But the garden is going to be so much smaller this year (she says through clenched teeth).
I've said that every year, and ended up expanding most years instead of reducing. Last year, we took the size down a bit by using smaller beds instead of one giant one.
This year, there's no choice but to reduce the garden. This summer we plan to crack down on the home repairs and improvements, and we really can't tackle that and tend a huge garden.
We still have plenty of produce put up from previous years, which helps, but of course we want our garden fresh goodies. And if I don't get to play in the dirt, I just may go insane.
I'm already having plant withdrawal. I plan to get some seedlings started this weekend, but nothing like my past adventures.
Nope, this year will be just a tray or two. **gasp** I feel faint just saying that.
It's just a small break. Just one year. Just a few months...Just one season....
I will never survive. You'll find me in the *former* garden space, lying in the dirt, twitching.
