    Tuesday afternoon
    I'm just beginning to see
    Now I'm on my way
    It doesn't matter to me
    Chasing the clouds away

    Something calls to me
    The trees are drawing me near
    I've got to find out why
    Those gentle voices I hear
    Explain it all with a sigh

    I'm looking at myself, reflections of my mind
    It's just the kind of day to leave myself behind
    So gently swaying through the fairy-land of love
    If you'll just come with me you'll see the beauty of
    Tuesday afternoon ~ Moody Blues

    Hello, my name is Jen, and I'm a seedhoarder.
    Right now I'm sorting my seeddrawer to see what is missing and needs to be bought.
    Recently I went to a seedtrading event and came home with maybe too much seeds. While sorting them I look online to get directions for sowing and stuff. Looked up some cucumber seeds and I can't find anything on the name i've written down, Google gives a different spelling for a seedcompany! I fear someone wrote the company name instead of the variety name! I can't stand this! :he:he:he

    You can also use your time sketching your garden and planning where you are going to plant what. When I do that it usually lasts until I start putting seeds or plants in the ground but it can be fun to daydream.

    The dreaming is the BEST part!!!

    Those perfectly straight, perfectly groomed rows LOADED with perfect blooms or veggies....
    .. there's the super sturdy and plenty high trellis
    .. over there is the built in garden sink .. OH! And the rain collection tank!
    .. look at how perfectly the companion plants have protected and improved the crops
    .. and not a SINGLE squash buy or slug has invaded this year......

    We are going to hire a neighbor to come till 2 patches in the garden. We want to clean out the chicken coop, spread it, then let him till it in. Then we will cover with cardboard and wood chip mulch. We have a stack of triple thick pumpkin boxes that we are going to use.

    I want to start cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower to set out. I want to stagger the planting’s to see when is the best time to plant. So far, I haven’t figured that out for fall/winter crops.
