Little seeds of Joy

I always have to remind myself not to panic when I see others have sown their vegetable seeds and are even potting them on into larger pots or planning to plant them outside. This post is to remind myself to do things in my own time, based on previous years, as it will all work out in the end. Better late than never, and if something fails, just try again.

Oops – I did it again…

…ordered more vegetable seeds, that is!

I blame my friend D. It’s her birthday at the end of March and we were chatting (texting) as you do, and I mentioned I had an excess of Boltardy beetroot seeds. So she said I could give her a packet for her birthday – cheap present, I thought.

Then I thought, I’ll just have a quick look at the seed catalogue… I need some herbs and stuff! To distract you – for a moment – from what I ordered, here is D’s birthday card, made by my own fair hands and featuring:

  • a handy laminated cartoon beetroot (to use as a label)
  • a packet of seeds (there will be a packet of multi-coloured mixed beets added)
  • a cheesy greeting (also laminated to mark the other end of the row)
  • Sowing and growing instructions – adapted (not by me) to suit our own area
