when we no longer have to merely peruse wistfully through the garden/plant catalogues...
we can start planting! (inside, of course)
Strapping Young Lad and I took over our orange kitchen table, and planted the sunflowers for this year's Sunflower House. And I mail-ordered some morning glories and sweet peas to complete the house, so we're waiting on those.
This, all in hopes of avoiding the foibles and follies of last year's less-than-perfect Sunflower House.
Days and days is a very long time, for a young fellow who is anxiously awaiting the first seed to sprout.
PS After composing this post, Hubby informed me that the Sunflower's might not transplant well...oops. I guess we'll just find out... But most of the pleasure in planting them inside first, is for Strapping Young Lad to marvel at the seedlings popping up.
