A day to focus on the future

I'm hosting a seed swap over at GardenWeb. All the seeds have arrived and they've been sorted into a filing container. It's mind boggling to think of all the life contained in that little box. Those little bits of stuff in paper and plastic envelopes may some day become food for a family, flowers for the garden, or even a 50' tall tree. Hard to believe, isn't it? I need to spend some time today getting the envelopes stuffed and returned to the people who are waiting patiently.


It's 32 degrees and sunny. Tonight's forecast is now at 17 degrees. Friday's forecast is 11 degrees. How about a little global warming, eh?

The seed swap sounds like a fun idea. Maybe I'll have to try that next year when I have some seeds to share.

I started with 5 types of seed this year. I now have over 200 varieties. I had more, but I traded them for things I really wanted. :)

A seed swap is a great idea. I'm doing it on a much smaller scale, but look forward to it even so.

Good luck with all those packets of bits!
