Candytuft going to seed
As you all should know by now, I love seeds. Sadly I'm starting to see that I have many many seeds and no space to use them all. I wish I could sell the seedlings but I don't even think I have space to grow them all and provide them with the right light. I never have been able to use a whole package of seeds. I only use not even a fourth sometimes.
I love to collect seeds from my plants even if that means they won't flower again. I like picking the pod and opening it up to be surprised to what I see. I have endless amounts of armeria that I don't know what I will do with. It seems every week I find another plant whose seed pods are ready.
Yesterday I saw that some of the Columbine pods were ready. I got a great deal of seeds just from around 4 pods. I have about 10 or more still on the plant waiting for them to be ready to open. If only I wasn't going on vacation starting on the 23rd. On the 24th there is the Festival of Flowers here in San Antonio. I'm depressed because it's the it event to go if you are a gardener. They have a seed exchange and a plant exchange and so much much more. Sadly we will be driving up to Arkansas on the day before. What great timing right? Gah, this year I haven't been able to attend any gardening events, tours, etc because I'm always working at that time. For once I wouldn't be working but I won't even be here. Now what will I do with all these seeds? I have only been able to find a few bags a home but it's ever growing!
