Got seeds, still no dirt
Oh, the shame! I couldn’t resist, I jumped the gun. Hopefully I did not jinx myself out of home ownership. I had created extensive spreadsheets of plants I want to order, the timing of their planting, various spacing and cultural requirements for all the basic vegetables…
So as soon as I heard “your offer on the house was accepted” I ordered a bunch of heirloom vegetable and flower seeds and seed-potatoes from the Seed Savers Exchange in a flurry of garden-desire euphoria. Wouldn’t you know, there was a miscommunication between buyer’s and listing agents, and instead there was really a counter-offer, and we are still stuck in the quagmire of negotiation.
Time is running out. I think my father-in-law may end up getting my seed potatoes (although they won’t arrive until early April). At least the seeds themselves will keep, I bought silica desiccants and everything.
Has anyone else ever foolishly bought plants that they didn’t have a spot for?
