So Many Seeds, So Little Space

It is that time of year again: Seed Catalog Time.  Why do I always forget how long this process takes?  Silly me thought that I could finish at least the I Want list by the end of this weekend, freeing up next weekend to make my final decisions.  Hah!  At this point, I have only gone through about half of my catalogs.

The vegetable seeds are bad enough.  For the most part, though, I know what I want and only pick out a few new varieties.  However, I have barely gotten my herb garden started, have to replace a dead apple tree, and have a ton of landscaping to do.  For the latter, I have to really watch myself.  I have a great fear of ordering a ton of new plants and finding out that none of them go with each other.

The plan is to stick to one or two new varieties for now, but we’ll see how that goes.  Best laid plans and all of that.

And then, of course, are all the nice gleaming tools or new books that sit so tantalizingly amongst the pages.  It is a good thing I have a budget.

How is your seed shopping going?  Are you all done with ordering or have you not even started?

    I throw caution to the wind and buy plants. Partly, I am a spendthrift. But also I don’t have the time or the set up to grow seedlings. For the first half of the year I am out of town most weeks. At least my garden is almost all perennials. The only annuals I have are in containers (although even there I’ve been putting dwarf blueberries) and the vegetable/herb garden.

      I buy some plants, especially if I only need a few of them, not an entire plot. Also, there are some plants, like tomatoes, that just aren’t consistent enough to be worth planting from seed. (Not that I don’t keep trying.)
