It worked so well the first year that we expanded the number of jugs in subsequent years, but I've gotten fussy of late. Lots of the seeds I've had success with (asters, zinnias, sweet Williams, four o'clocks, Shasta daisies, columbine) either bloom for a short time or bloom late. Last year, although I did some winter sewing, I concentrated mostly on the pumpkins my husband likes to grow and on just a couple of other varieties. I told myself I was going to cut back even more this year.
But...it's cold, it's winter, and I need flowers. I need to look ahead to summer and plan a garden, so today I ordered some seeds. Not many, just some pumpkin seeds of a different variety than we usually plant, some zinnias that the gardening catalog promised would bloom early summer into fall and also a butterfly/milkweed collection.
Best of luck on finding ways to keep spring and summer in your hearts!
