Today we had ourselves a nice wild goose chase looking for seeds. I was hoping to get a seed tray to get these guys started, but alas, we couldn’t find one. We started at Home Depot-no seeds, no nothin’. We got these seeds are Target, but nothing else. Alas, they’ll just have to wait.
We’re starting with just some herb seeds. Here I have cilantro, parsley, garlic chives, and sage. They’ll be interspersed with other plants in our theoretical garden, as some herbs–including basil, seeds of which I already have–have fine soil-boosting and insect-fighting properties, so long as they’re near plants they like. I worked on a draft of a garden plan today. I forgot green beans, but other than that, it looks pretty good. We’ll see how (if) it looks on paper. Wednesday is ‘get-yer-plot’ day. So we’ll know then.
In other news, we’re planning on moving. Our apartment is lovely, but the neighborhood is not. If we liked people rapping next door at 4 am, having loud cell phone conversations outside your window at 3 am, or feeling like we’re going to get mugged periodically if we walk in a particular direction down the street, we’d stay. Unfortunately, it’s not the case. So I think we’ll be going. Some of you might remember how much I hate, hate moving. But I like feeling secure more than I hate moving, so that’s the verdict. It’s a shame, but it’s the way it is. And I’m hoping for an upstairs apartment or a side-by-side duplex so the, um, vocalizations from above aren’t something we need to tolerate.
