|Hundreds and hundreds of potential plants|
Don't suppose you ever thought you'd hear me say that I have too many seeds, but ho-and-behold I do indeed have way too many seeds. Don't believe me? Come, let me show you.
|16 oz container--heck of a lot of seeds|
|Seed pods full of more seeds. YIKES!|
Now you see this container? There used to be ice cream in this one gallon bucket. Yes, it was yummy, but that is hardly the point. This container was only half full with seed pods...seed pods which I collected for the express purpose of preventing them to all drop where they stood. Why? Oh, well, because in my ever-fertile garden, a dropped seed today is a vibrant, fast growing plant tomorrow-- or at least by the following growing season.
At the beginning of my gardening endevours, plants which propagated on their own were a wonderful thing. I even encouraged it! But now, with garden space being at a premium and weeding time growing less and less, the constant over-germination of seeds has to be curtailed. Thus, I collect seeds... hopefully to give away.
So, anybody want some seeds? Oh, what's that you say? That ain't so much seeds? You jest, surely!
Well, did I tell you I had to use a slightly bigger container when I finished un-shelling all the seeds out of the seed pods? Then take a look and then tell me I don't have too many seeds.
|One half gallon container of seeds. OY!|
Oh, yes, and that's just one type of seed... Japanese Irises to be exact. I'll have to show you the rest some time.
So, enough seeds for you yet? I thought so.
