It’s that time of year
When the seed catalogs arrive one after another
This year, I decided to run some seed trials before placing orders
I still have a fair amount of seeds from when I was farming
But didn’t know if they were viable
The alliums, which are said to only have a year viability, did stellar – no doubt due to being kept meticulously cool & dry in multiple baggies tucked in the refrigerator since 2012
Alas the Concept Batavian goes to the compost
Was asked by a friend if I was testing the seeds I grew
And I hadn’t yet, but began today with the parsley
I’m trying to pay attention to the thoughts in my mind
Since the habit of identifying with the thoughts is SO strong
I’m trying to be mindful of the thinking habits
I could see a procrastination fear habit right in plain sight
Fear of failure.
So don’t even try.
…like if I don’t test it, then I won’t know – that is, I won’t know they won’t germinate
But they might!
Thing is, even if they don’t germinate
And it was a fun experiment
And I can try again with seeds I purchase in 2015 if need be
I wonder if fuanocoumarins could be a natural weed inhibitor…?
