Seeds, Seeds, and more Seeds

November 20th, 2017

I’ve been slowly adding items to my little store, I’m trying to get all the seeds up this week or next. As I’ve been listing, I’ve been looking at the stash of things I’ve collected this summer.

I’m also testing germination on many of the seeds. Since they’re super fresh, the rates are fantastic.

There are seeds here, seeds there, seeds EVERYWHERE! I’m slowly getting them organized, into jars, and then up on the site. Writing descriptions takes the longest. Slowly but surely I’m chipping away at the list of things to do for this project. On Saturday morning alone I managed to add 9 items!

What projects are you working on this week?

    Susy, I’m still into garden cleanup. Only three more beds to cleanup and get ready for Winter. I expect the cleanup will continue until the snow flies. That can be at any time now. Some years it’s not until Christmas time and others it’s around Thanksgiving time. Since we have had a couple mild Winters, we are due to have a heavy snowfall year.

    Have a great seeds sorting day.

    Like Dave, finishing garden clean up, but also making lavender sachets from my friend’s harvests, and some of mine.
    I also made a prototype of lavender and flax seed in a rectangle for an eye pillow for my yoga teacher.
    Having a place to sew when you have a minute is really handy, and I find I get a lot done too.
    Lastly, getting ready for Thanksgiving. It is a time to celebrate our friends and family and our garden!
    Have a good trip to Ohio!
