Confession #319 -A Different Seed Pledge

Seeds are addictive. Well, they are if you have an addictive personality.
Like me.

The statement “There are seeds everywhere in the house!” of course could not be literal; otherwise we would have to move out.

wall of seeds

The wall.

The statement “There’s a wall of seeds in here!” however, can be taken literally.
There is a wall, and that’s not all.

box of seeds

Just one box.

They are in boxes, by planters, on the crafts/gardening table.
There are probably some in the mail.
There are stacks of seed catalogs and magazines suggesting new and inviting seeds to try.

At times it is all but overwhelming.
Then there are the stores and seed displays… oh my.

more seeds

Will it ever be enough?

So here I offer for your consideration, a different kind of Seed Pledge:

I will not knowingly purchase any more seeds for the upcoming growing season. Signed, Gardening Jones

This is going to make quitting smoking look like child’s play.
Well… isn’t that a bad analogy?

So, are you in? Do you have enough seed packets that you are willing to finally make a commitment? Will you sign the pledge?

And isn’t knowingly open for debate?

    Now, that wall of seeds would make any garden center envious

    ‘Just can’t sign that! Even though we also “have seeds all over the house, I just know there will be something exciting and wonderful that we must try this year! But where we’re going to put is is another story. Can’t wait!

    Ooops, typo……it

    Yep…Either I’m doomed or it will simply be the longest growing season of my life.
    Which isn’t all that bad, in a way.

    Seeds are really addictive, I agree! I came up with a way to organize them in boxes meant for bead storage. Only thing is I don’t get to see the pretty pictures that come along with the plants, but then my seeds stay good for much longer!

    That sounds like a great way to store them Tamara, thanks for sharing the idea!
