So I just wanted to get out how I'm feeling on the 2nd/3rd week of my self-imposed plant/seed/plant container moratorium (unless the plant is trade/bartered for or it is for and emergency, aka loss of a plant, or needed for next season's food/garden use, aka green mulch/groundcover).
So, easily put, it sucks because we all know the high of getting a new plant.
But at the same time it doesn't too because it's one less thing to take care of/plant and there's a certain freedom in this moratorium because a decision is made and so technically I can't be tortured by plants/seeds (though I keep encountering through online sales fliers and catalogs *face plant*) because as much as I want say, a ruby spike selaginella (gah! you were for so cheap at the Botanic Garden sale, why didn't I get you then?!) or many, many other random herbs, or everything from Bakers Creek Heirloom Seeds would be nice to have, I have absolutely no reason to get them now, and my head will just do a "NO!" and I move on. This is sort of Pavlovian isn't it?
Oh discipline, it is tough. But I just need to work with what I've got, and make 'em thrive.
Sometime ago I encountered a very odd dandelion:
Genetic defect? My dandelions are all inbreeding? Or a disease? (a weak point of mine)
If anyone has any info it would be appreciated. I'm starting to wonder if my garden/yard is full of radioactive material!
