Well, it happened. I hoped it wouldn't. I tried, really I did. Every year, when the weather finally grows warmer, I forget all of my past attempts and failures in the garden, and make yet more plans. This year has been no exception.
I was dreaming big too. Sunflowers, big, beautiful sunflowers. Wouldn't they be perfect against the new fence we'd be putting in the backyard?
We bought the seeds, planted them carefully, and watched with anticipation and excitement as the sprouts quickly turned into promising seedlings.
But. . . the installing of the fence didn't happen fast enough. The seedlings were outgrowing their container quickly, and with homeschooling, dance competitions, doctor appointments. . . you know, life, my proud sproutlings expired.
Plants fear me. Argh. Oh well. Still, I will not be deterred. I'm skipping the seeds though, and will be moving right to more mature plants. I will succeed!
I still have pumpkins to hope for. Sprouted those from seeds too, but yes, they're waning too. Tomorrow, I will get them to a bigger spot before they go too. No, really, I will.
