When Hubby and I were last in Lacrosse we stopped at Menards. I’ve been wanting to get garden seed and start my own plants so I did. Then time got away and Palm Sunday came. Our son Buck was home and said..mom, don’t bother planting them indoors. It’s too late. UGH. He said I should have started them at least six weeks ago. UGH.
Money spent for nothing. Then I decided well I am at least going to start the Morning Glories and Moon Flowers.
I’ve always wanted to start my own seedlings. I was so excited and disappointed all at once. I planted them…and then remembered at the last minute last fall I had dug out the potato vines and saved them. I have no idea if they grow like potatoes but after looking at the tuber I decided that it looked like a bud was starting…so I planted it.I have no idea if it’s going to work or not but it’s not costing me anything to try.
I cut back my geraniums that I’ve had in the basement and hopefully they’ll perk up and start growing too.
In the end I did put the tomato seed and pepper seeds in too. What the heck? It they don’t grow…big deal. I’d have to throw the seeds out anyway. At least this way I’ll know if I want to try to start my own seeds next year or if it’s a waste of time and energy. I’ll also know how long it takes to get them going so I can plan better for next year.
For now…I’m just calling it an experiment.
