Saving Seeds, Planting Herbs and Cute Little Vases

Happy Mother's Day!

Today I worked on my seed saving project.  

I've had seeds in dixie cups, 1/2 pint jars and envelopes, some since last fall. The tropical wisteria seeds had fallen down behind some canisters.  I've been searching for a long time for those seeds!  Glad hubby found them the other day.

I spent a ridiculous amount of time working on the Amaranth seeds.  It's mighty difficult getting the seeds out.  I am definitely not a fan.  I am probably going to have rogue amaranth popping up all over the place by the big compost pile and under the deck! I'll have to find a better way to save amaranth seeds, otherwise I won't bother with that again.

I went to collect some of the spent zinnias and found two flowers for my cute little vase.

After the seed saving project I managed to plant the 5 pots of herbs I got yesterday.  I also planted the flower seeds.

I am tickled pink every time I go dig in the yard.  We have WORMS!  Today's dig had worms in every hole but one!  I'm truly amazed!
