Seed madness

Next week my kitchen table will be cleared of fall garden chaos. This week, I'm just embracing it.

Do you ever find yourself daydreaming over a stack of seed packets, envisioning what the garden will look like in a few weeks (veggies) or months (wildflowers)? As usual, I've got more seeds than I know what to do with, but I love this time in fall when the possibilities seem endless. Later I can worry about keeping everything watered correctly, covering things if we get a freeze, checking for insects...right now, I can dream a little dream of orange poppies, Tuscan kale, heirloom fennel.

Also did a little seed collecting from the cosmos and other flowers. And made some little seed envelopes from wrapping paper scraps (got the idea here).

your seed envelopes turned out so cute! lovely papers. and yes, i daydream in seeds as well. i went through my seed shoebox last night and catalogued them--seed madness indeed.

Thanks, Emily. When I saw yours, I got inspired to use something other than white check envelopes. This is so much more satisfying! Hmm, cataloging...
