Seeds are addictive. Well, they are if you have an addictive personality.
The statement “There are seeds everywhere in the house!” of course could not be literal; otherwise we would have to move out.
The statement “There’s a wall of seeds in here!” however, can be taken literally.
There is a wall, and that’s not all.
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.
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?
