|Welcome to my morning office|
Planting by the moon cycles dictates this week be spent preparing the Annual beds.
Keeping good order of our seed is important.
Next year at the time of using my saved seeds life will be easy for me.
Saved seed does not have the luxury of seed packages with all the data on them needful to replant in a beneficial way. On the inventory sheet is the information needed for success. NO need to do all the research again. It is all there.
When What Where Why
days to germination
height at thinning
full grown height
Companion planting if applicable.

These are just beginning only 2 weeks in. Bachelor buttons, Shasta daisy, forget-me-nots, sweet peas and lupines. There are also columbines. This is my blue/white bed. Now some nasturtiums vines that had reseeded are also joining them. They are a fire palate so they may get pulled.
|Lupines. Remember to chill seeds of lupines for 7 days before planting|
|The ferns are loving the cooler days. Well under 100 here has been a treat.|
My seeds now sorted into annuals, perennials and biennials.
I study some types on line and then add the printed information to the data page.
|This is the week to plow and cultivate.|
Some parts will be left poorer soil for those flowers that prefer it. One side will be rich soil and so on.
