I realize that everything last year was off whack, but I thought I could count on somethings remaining normal. Nope.
Our seed catalogs usually start showing up around October or November. I understand that anything that had to do with the mail was going to be late. What I was not expecting was for our catalogs to already be out of seeds?
How can this be? We just started getting the catalogs in late December. I assumed that most other garden lovers were also going to have delays. Apparently, there are a bunch of sneaky-snakes out there that didn’t wait for their catalogs; they just went right to their favorite websites and ordered ahead – grr!
What is with garden planners? Holy crap! There are hundreds of them out there on the internet and material world.
- Some are free to sign up for their email.
- Some cost minimal.
- Some go as far as making them a whole book.
I currently have five different ones that I have saved, bought, downloaded, and/or created. One of my first goals this new 2021 year is to get something that actually works – AND HELPS – me. The last 6-10 years have had one terrible omen after another. I refuse to listen to them anymore. This year WILL be a winner in our gardens, and I will figure out how. Come hell or high-water or tornado!
On a side note, I just realized that the movie “I Robot” is supposed to be what the year 2035 looks like. This is now less than 15 years away. Between that and the film “Runaway”, I have decided that there will NEVER be robots tending my gardens. At least not while I am still alive.
