Repotting seedlings and finding lost seeds
Yes, the lost seeds have been found. They hadn't run away together, nor had Pixies been playing games. It was just a simple matter of my starting to do one thing, getting sidetracked and then forgetting to finish the thing I started. Please, someone tell me that they have done the same thing, I don't want to feel I am alone with this affliction.
I found the Cucumber and Moonflower Vine seeds along with the Roman Camomile and Alysum seeds that I had not yet noticed were missing, two jar lids to be used as watering trays under pots and a couple of styrofoam meat trays kept for the same purpose, all sitting on Randy's saw table in the back room. I was heading out to the bloom house with them last weekend when Randy was building my new shelves, he needed me to help and I just never got back to my original plan.
Yesterday I did get some seedlings repotted, some are still too small and some are more than I need. The excess seedlings will be repotted next month and once I determine I have no need for them I will contact a lady at the community garden in the next town to see if they can use them.
Cucumbers, Hyacinth Bean Vines, Red Bean vines, Grampa Ott Morning Glory. I decided that most of the Zinnias I had started would be put directly into a large planter out back when they are big enough.
I bought some Bleeding Heart and Astilbe roots a couple of weeks ago, got those in pots. I have been told that neither one will do well here but that bit of info came from the same Master Gardener who couldn't ID some of the plants in his own yard at the lecture he gave, so I think I will try them and find out for myself...thank you very much.
Also received two boxes of plants I ordered and got them potted. Maximillian Sunflowers, Red Valerian and 4 mini Roses - Green Ice, Lavender Lace, Hearts Afire and Stars and Stripes.....in other words, pale green, lavender, bright red and red/white stripe.
When they and the pot of mini Roses Randy gave me for Valentines are ready they will be planted in the rustic wood doll bed I bought at a thrift store a while back to make a 'bed of roses'.
I have a large galvanized tub that I filled with Crocosmia-Emily McKenzie bulbs, hopefully I will have a mass of red/yellow/orange blooms in a few weeks.
I found that my Spiderwort had two 'plantlets' growing next to it, so I got one transplanted to it's own pot. The other one will be moved today.

You sure have been busy Toni! I love the sound of your Bed of Roses -be sure to take some pictures of them blooming.
Toni, you are definately not alone. I forget what I'm doing all the time getting distracted with something else just from walking into another room. It drives me crazy.
I can feel the warmth and smell the soil if I close my eyes very tight. Good luck with the hearts and astilbe. It's always good to try things, you might be lucky. I forget stuff all the time, and I'd rather not tell you where I've found some stuff... Our Crocosmia won't bloom until autumn, so I hope you'll share yours in the meantime.
You are one busy ladie and yes toni I do the same thing you do.I just have to many irons in the fire at once.
Love the 'bed of roses' idea. And yes Toni, I suffer from the same affliction.. I believe it is called 'CRS'! ;)
Wow Toni! How busy you've been! I love the planter. What a great look!
