Notes to self

  1.  Check the seeds you have before ordering more.
  2. Now that you know where to buy organic seeds don’t buy anything else.
  3. Be sure that the plants you buy from others weren’t treated with systemic pesticides.   I know they’re pretty.  Resist temptation.  Find another source.
  4. Be kind to yourself.
  5. The birds, salamanders, etc. love the saucer you set out for them.  Add water regularly and keep it clean.
  6. Spend more time outside.  Enjoy the sun, the wind, the rain, the smell of the earth.
  7. When the strawberries begin to ripen you need to check and pick them everyday.  They get over ripe fast and the squirrels and birds  find them to be a tasty treat.
