I’m a procrastinator. I’m an ambitious procrastinator. I collect seed packages with the intention of starting, then transplanting the seedlings and growing all kinds of yummy vegetables or pretty flowers. I seldom get them in soil to start and if I do they usually languish in the pots, never making it in the ground to grow. On the occasion I do get them planted they seem to ripen when we are out of town or we just don’t cook what we planted. (What do you do with that much Swiss Chard?) This year I resolve to do better. We bought a cold frame to start seeds in and last weekend we meticulously pushed seeds into recycled 6 pack containers in the hope we’ll harvest cucumbers and watermelons some time this summer. I’m going to try and grow carrots & radishes in containers on the back deck. And sprinkle some of the flower seeds on the bare spots in the yard. Soon. I’m going to do it soon. Yes, I’m an ambitious procrastinator.
