Tuesday Ramblings...

Well, last night I decided to drag out my seed stash that is kept up under my kitchen sink. Wow! I have quite a collection! Alot of them from farmgirls around the country, but alot of seeds I have saved from the cottage garden and packets from here and there.
Anyhow..it was time to sort through them.I wound up dumping alot of them all together into a container(the ones that need cold weather to germinate..like poppies and some wildflower varieties)...they will all be scattered into the cottage garden this afternoon.
The rest I will begin planting here and there in February...and I still have lots and lots left.
I have plenty of seeds to have a lovely yard and garden that is for sure.
Today we wound up with a bit of chilly weather.
brrrr.Yeah..for us wimps in sunny Florida..60 degrees is chilly. It's supposed to get down to 32 tonight.
I told my hubby last night that no way would I be able to survive up North.
Well, I'm looking forward to attending
The Thomasville,GA Victorian Christmas.
I will have to get photos for sure, as I was unable to find very many photos of this event online.
So, I'll have to make sure I get some images to share.
My daughter and I will be dressing in Victorian clothing.
All of the new critters are doing well. Each one definitely has its own personality.
I'm still trying to find out some information on the local 4-H clubs.
I hope that you all are having a very nice day today.
Thanks for joining me in "blogland"

I don't have good luck with seeds! I keep trying every year though, one day I'll figure out what I'm doing wrong!

About the only seeds I keep and replant are my giant zinnias. For our garden, we usually just buy new seed from the co-op each year, so I am impressed that you will have a garden from saved seed!
Have fun at the Victorian Christmas! Hope the weather warms up a bit.
