|Morning in my tiny pumpkin patch next to the dahlias|
My huband says to just throw them away. They were free. He says I'm not obligated to use them. But I must. The drive to plant is stronger than the urge to purge. And so I look for spaces to plant these seeds (if I can't find them another home). This was the case with those adorable tiny pumpkins you see in the fall. They're called Jack-be-Littles. They're really more a gourd than a pumpkin but who cares. They're cute pumpkins to the kids. And so the seed packet sat on my counter. I couldn't throw it out but I didn't want to use precious garden space for a plant with vines. So I thought vertical. And then I thought of the trellis where the dahlias didn't grow last year. So I took a chance.
|This is what I hope I'll find later in the season!|
