Then I definitely won't look them up! Hilarious! Hilarious!

I have a shoebox crammed full of flower seeds. And one of veggies and one of tomatoes...a smaller one for herbs...

Yep, I have an addiction!

I have a crock pot that is full, I registered for a seed swap two years ago so I could get rid of some and I ended up with more!! I think I will donate some seed before they go bad, but not the pretty ones!! Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

A crock pot? Does that do a good job storing them?

I'd probably end up the same way (seed swap). Sometimes I just want to get rid of old seeds so I throw them out in the soil and it's do or die. (I have a lot of growing area). Like this year I have one 3' x 50' row that is my "nursery" row and I planted a lot of old seeds there. Some are coming up, some not. And I only have the order of planting scribbled on a piece of paper. IF I lose that paper, until they are big enough to be identified, I'm sunk. And I would never know what DIDN'T come up! Hilarious!

Oh, that's what I forgot to order, marigolds...where did you order from?

I just placed another huge order to Thompson & Morgan last night too. It's crazy, Jennifer and I order together but we ordered from at least 6 different vendors and pretty large orders with all. Of course this is the first year Jennifer is doing Winter Sowing so she needed some seeds. I usually start most of the things for her.

Oh, and I don't have any garden projects per say, but I have these planters my son made me that I have to fill up. The planters are PVC pipe with holes drilled large enough to tuck a plant in them, all around, and about 4' tall. He put a small piece of PVC down the middle with holes for watering. I usually put blue and white lobelia in them. I'll try and take some pictures of the tubes before I plant them and then later in the season when the lobelia fills in. And I think I have the plans in a pdf file so I can share for anyone handy.

Well, the lobelia are still pretty small so it's going to take awhile for them to fill in. I'll take pictures later.
