Facebook. Not just for pictures of your cats, apparently.
So today, while peeling yet more peaches from the half bushel box I got last weekend, I heard a ruckus on the porch: cats came flying away from the outer door, something WHAPPED onto the concrete floor, and the door banged..and then started flapping in the afternoon breeze because it hadn't latched properly.
Fed Ex delivers, people. Sheesh.
So I hauled myself out through the tricky screen door from the kitchen onto the porch, getting stuck twice in the process--crutches are not convenient for getting through screen doors, in case you were wondering--and hopped my way to relatch the outer door before it blew completely open and let a cat or two out into the wilderness.
In the middle of the floor was a massive box. My first thought was, what the heck is this?
My second thought: oh lord. Those must be my seeds!
Try, 700 or so packages of heirloom seeds. My third thought: What have I done??
My fourth thought: I'm gonna need a bigger drawer to house the seed bank in.
Can you believe the generosity? I am so excited--this is going to be a great contribution for the Community Garden, Seed Swap and the Seed Bank projects I coordinate! Irish Eyes Garden Seeds, thank you very very much!
To share the wealth, I'm offering ten readers the chance to win a dozen packets from my insane collection. Leave a comment telling me your name, email to contact you at, and why you'd like some free seeds to add to your gardening endeavors. Entries will be accepted until 6 PM, this Saturday, August 24, 2013. Good luck, and I can't wait to read about what you'll use the seeds for!
