when you buy a rambling old house that needs tons of work on a sizable lot, there's plenty to do. when you add three young children to that mix, there's plenty that's going to take a long time to do. most of the time, i'm ok with that. a practice in patience, right? well, we've got all kinds of plans for this place, but i just really wanted to get some stinkin seeds into the ground just for fun. manicured landscaping, preplanned gardens, researched species, deer-resistant plants, winter hardiness and all your bedfellows, be darned...we're going to throw some stuff into the dirt, add some water and see what happens. the boys enjoyed plunking their seeds in, covering them up, and beginning the wait. stay tuned...we'll see what pops up.
