RE: Somebody stop me

I'm another Cyndi or Bonnie!  I've gone beyond my current garden space in
daylilies, but I'm probably going to order a couple more! I still have my
mom's garden to renovate.  I started working on it last summer, but with the
heat, I'd didn't get very far.  Also, I built my new stone walled bed and
added another two beds where they were needed, so I shouldn't be so hard on

On Sunday, I just had to get a plant fix, so I drove to the nearest garden
center where I'd be able to find more than a bench of houseplants like Lowes
would have. It was a 30 mile trip (in heavy, wet snow) to get there, but
worth the effort!  Even this mega nursery was low in selection, but I was
able to pick up a couple of cheery Kalanchoes for $2.50 each and some
terrarium plants.  I even bought some crocus bulbs at 75% off that I need to
poke into the soil today. They may be just squirrel food, but they were
cheap and will be a breeze to plant!

I just got the Select Seeds catalog.   Are they good to order from?  What
about their plants?

Pam- I feel your drought in a physical way.  It actually pains me to think
about it! When we've been really dry, it is heartbreaking to watch the
plants and animals suffer. Watering with the hose doesn't seem to have the
same benefit as a good downpour!

David- I'm glad you and your plants are safe!

Cyndi, you sound like me. LOL!!!  There is always something like that I'm
not going to do...but then there will be this unique plant or that really
useful one that would look soooo good over there and before you know it,
more soil is being prepared and some spot is being amended just for what I
didn't think I'd be doing.  

Good luck sticking to your garden resolutions.  I'd like to help you stay in
line with them, but then I'd have to be able to control myself first.  I
suppose it could be worse.  We could be hooked on something really
dangerous.  LOL!!!

Didn't I spend quite a bit of time over the last few
months declaiming about how I wasn't going to buy any
seeds this year? Didn't I say I was determined to
scale back my vegetable garden? That was me, right?
Sure looks like my name in the archives.  
So the seed catalogs are coming in, there's Burpee,
Territorial, Cook's Garden, Select Seeds. By golly
look at all those little stickies in the pages, how
did those get in there? More catalogs to come too. But
I'm not buying anything this year, that's what I said,
I remember it. And yet... 
My husband is no help. This man has not looked in a
seed catalog in his life, despite having them piled
around the house hip deep for 20 years. But THIS year
he looks at the Burpee catalog, with that cover
picture of the striped tomato, and says "Isn't that
pretty? Let's grow that."
This could be harder than sticking to a diet. 

Just $16.99/mo. or less.
