I've Got Seeds!

I’ve got seeds!

Take that Mr. Winter! You can huff and puff and blow your snow around. You can be cold and miserable and throw those icy paths before me. Give me your best shot and I’m positive I’ll remain standing because…

I’ve got seeds!

Like a kid with trading cards, I shuffle the seed packets from one hand to another. I lay them out on the table and look them over. I sort them by type and I admire the art on each package. I go to bed dreaming of the garden because...

I’ve got seeds!

When people ask if I’m ready for spring, I can be emphatic in my answer. I am ready for the sowing days because…

I’ve got seeds!

Carol…

Yes, Dr. Hortfreud?

Aren’t you being a little over exuberant about your seeds?

What do you mean?

Well, from what I can see you have about half of the seeds you normally buy each year.

Oh, that’s because I need to order more seeds.

So should you really be shouting “I’ve got seeds” while jumping up and down like a garden fairy who just discovered the first violet bloom of spring?

Well, technically, I guess not. I guess I should really be saying…

I’ve got some seeds!

And I promise myself I’ll order the rest of the seeds I need this weekend.

  1. Hooray for seeds! I just placed my final order of the year, and it made me a little sad. You cheered me up! I've got seeds too! :)

  2. Mine are also spread out over the kitchen table for me to arrange and peruse! All that potential in the bleak midwinter.

  4. Whooo hoooo, love those seeds. There is a stack here too. Fun to shuffle through those packets full of such wonderful scents and colors as you can sense them in your minds eye. Especially when the outside world is white like a clean palette.

  5. The best part of winter...the seeds and their potential.
    Have fun getting stuff going. It is a great way to battle the doldrums, my dad tells me.

  9. Before I started garden blogging I didn't give much thought to seeds...now I'm embarrassed to admit it! The seed epidemic is spreading:-) The packets are sometimes so pretty I don't want to open them!

  10. Dear Carol, I know exactly the feeling you describe - the ordering and arrival of seeds is a compulsive part of gardening. Sometimes it really does not matter if one does nothing with them - it is the promise which is so important.

    My young friends, sadly, grow nothing from seed as today there is so much available either as fully grown plants or as plugs.

  11. Your fellow gardeners share your delight! :) We bought seeds a few weeks ago. Cannot wait to get something in the ground. As soon as there is no snow, I'm planting spinach for starters. :) ~~Rhonda
