It's An Addiction

Do you think I need more seeds? A lot of these were free, but a lot of them weren't. I don't have nearly enough room to plant all these... Hopefully my community garden plot comes through, and neighbour-lady who wants her backyard gardened, and maybe I can work with Capital City Diner to landscape there, too (I'm thinking lots of perennial herbs for cookin', pending testing of soil quality).

I have a problem. I admit to it fully. But I will not seek help! (Please ignore the formatting--I'm not going back and adding italics for genus/species names at this point. I just spent half an hour removing extraneous spaces and returns so the table will appear at the top of the post... Folks who use browsers that for some reason don't like the formatting may also not see all the columns, but that's alright, the most important information is in the first two: seed and seed company.) The ones that are struck out I no longer have (traded, used, or killed).

  1. HOLE. EEE. COW! I got dizzy from paging down! You definitely need an intervention, so we'll see ya next week Sunday, 10pm Eastern time on A&E! I am laughing so hard right now, but not at you...with you... I suffer this addiction as well, it just hits home so well when you post it all together!! Have fun!

  2. Love your ambition! And your ideas for stretching your apartment garden out into the neighborhood. Your love for growing is a good thing and can be contagious. I'm sure you get lots of people interested in growing their own. The Indoor Garden(er) is an inspiration. We need more people like you in the big cities!

  3. At last I have found a person that has more seeds than me...Makes me feel a whole lot better now :))))))))

  4. Heh. Hehe... If only I had updated this in the past year, with all the new vegetable and herb varieties...!
