Queen of seeds

Some of my flowers are already starting to go to seed *sniffle sniffle*. Cosmos were the first to kick off the trend with the one up front, now the patch in the back is starting to join in, fun there was getting a jolt of how sharp those d*mn seeds are when I got four or five stuck in my thumb. So now scissors are my new best friend! *g* And the other flowers are quickly joining in, petunia, pansy (the seed heads are huge…) and some portulanca & snapdragons.

Got to harvest my first four o’clock seeds this afternoon too. Wow, these seeds are huge. Like the size of a matchstick head. May need a few envelopes for those ones, since the few plants by the window now look like a hedge!

Have to go google for some online printable seed packets. Usually I just use #10 envelopes and stuff them in there, but I’ve got some small seeds that won’t stuff a whole one of those, so might as well design my own pretty ones :o)

  1. Wow, girl, you’re definitely the queen of seeds! I’ve never designed seeds packets, but I did the labels for home made jams and jellies. That was fun!

  2. My yard is yellow. Won’t talk about things growing cuz it’s all dead.

    You’re amazing.

  3. Right now I just cut some #10 envelopes in half for the smaller seeds, works quite well. Doodled some flowers on the front with my pretty scented markers and voila, instant seed packs 😀

    Oh yummy on the homemade jams and jellies!
