While I was taking my post-work nap, the stuff I ordered from Territorial Seeds showed up.

I’m really not ready to plant tomatoes.

I’ll Do It Every Time

Stop off at the garden center to buy some  fertilizer for the lawn….say to myself  “I’ll just wander over and see if they have any parsley”.  Proceed to realize that 1) Wow.  There’s a lot more than parsley to plant in April . 2) Gee,  those lettuce sprouts I planted from seed are a long way from a salad.  3) It’s cheaper to buy a flat of 8 cell packs than buy 5 individually.

Arrive home not only with aforementioned parsley and lettuce, but, chives, brussels sprouts, shallots and more.

Move flats around for a couple of days, keeping them watered while figuring out when the hell I’m going to find time to prep the veg beds.

Accept fact that it’s going to be a long weekend. 

We’ll keep you posted.
