doodle by andre: attention, seed-catalog shoppers!

UM, I GUESS OUR FRIEND Andre Jordan got a peek at the way we really order seeds, huh? Trouble is: I’m still stuck on Step 1, that “Bloody Brilliant Big List” thing.

      I think that’s a strain of the same bug, Susan. :) I have both forms of the disease — but nowhere nearly as bad as when I first started gardening. But they do have a powerful pull on us, don’t they? See you soon, I hope.

  1. Carol in NC says:

    Haha. This made me laugh. We recently sold our 43 acre farm and are living in a CONDO no less. My husband saw me pouring over my seed catalogs with list in hand and just shook his head. What’s wrong with me?!

  2. Michele says:

    My name is Michele, and I’m a NEW seedaholic. This is my first attempt at gardening, and I MAY have puchased an over-abundance of seeds. Go big or go home, right? I liked Lucy’s comment – You are buying dreams….very well-put!

  3. Lisa says:

    Vegetable seeds are a delightfully inexpensive hobby, in my opinion.

    I like to buy them, and share!

    Happily, I do a lot of vegetable gardening classes and donate transplants to our local growers for food banks. Woo-hooo!

    Dear Andre,

    are you stalking me? ;) my house is 742 sq feet, and the garden is 875 sq feet (so far).
    and i skipped 4a, no revising the list!

    Our Master Gardener group grows tomatoes for the annual May plant sale fundraiser. We normally start seedlings mid February. I decided to use up older seeds (3 and 4 years old), and overplanted since I figured only half would come up.

    You might know it, I had nearly 100% germination and now have 125 of them in 4″ pots crammed under 2 banks of growlights in the garage (a space that normally holds 72 pots).

    Most of them will find new homes but in the meantime, I’ll be rotating those trays like crazy since my husband won’t let me put grow lights in the living room.

    In the last couple of days, I took a count of my seeds (present and previous orders, saved, received) and I’m proud to announce that I have more seeds than soil in the garden!

  7. Sarah says:

    For me, unfortunately money is more of an issue than space is. The vegetable garden isn’t that bad, but now I’m starting to focus on the landscaping more. It’s a good thing our ground doesn’t dry out until May, because I may still be trickling out seed orders at that time.
