Today I am feeling giddy thinking about the seeds I purchased on Sunday. I also picked up seed starter soil, cell flats and some vermiculite. I decided I wanted to buy seeds this year to diversify my garden. I still have plenty of seeds that I have saved that I will use this spring, however I could not resist the seed catalog!

Looks like I will need to fill my calendar with seed starting dates. I also plan to start expanding the beds into the back of yard as I would like to have more of a botanical garden in the yard than just a lot of grass. That’s where a lot of those herbs and flowers will go.
What seeds are you lusting after this season?

This has been my mantra for the last year, now that it’s here my world feels exciting and new.
Lots of new beginnings for September 2012: school and business ventures. I may even be cheesy and call it a journey (you know I had to tie in the boat photo somehow!)
What I have learned in the last year is to have more faith that things will work out. While the fear of change will always be there the fact that you are trying something new, taking a risk is one way to grow. Nothing grows in stagnant water, or to please my biologist husband, maybe what does grow is small, dark and slimy. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, me – I prefer big, bright and shiny.
And speaking of bright and shiny I have begun my fall garden, so far I have peas and collards coming up. I still have tomatoes and Hooray! I have a beautiful butternut squash that was still in perfect shape. I was afraid it was going to have little bites since no one was around to keep the critters at bay. Maybe next week I’ll have a butternut squash risotto recipes for you. YUM!
