Decisions, Decisions!

008

I have been pouring over my seed books for 2011 for days now…eye balling all the different seeds for the greenhouse crop for the coming year.

There are several that I will ALWAYS plant in there…things that I know will thrive in my gardens no matter what, but each year I try to find a couple new varieties just to keep it challenging.

My list is again ever growing and I am excited to see that many plants that were once only sold as plugs are now coming out in seed. Bacopa is a good example of this. For years I never could find seed for Bacopa, and had to resort to buying a couple plants in the garden center to use in my planters…Last year, I found Bacopa! This made me very happy.

What do you plant in your greenhouse? Do you start from seed? Do you have favorites/staples? Do you have any exciting new varieties to suggest to this gardener today?

The seed order will be going in soon…early January for sure…and I can’t wait to share my final roster of player for the greenhouse this year.

I am also diligently working on a new adventure that I am so excited to share with you all. Stay tuned…the news will be breaking shortly!

I have begun to make myself a schedule to follow as things are beginning to fall into routine for us here in the house of Toots…so I am excited to get around and do some visiting, see what you all have going on, get inspired and wish you all a very merry Christmas and happy Holiday season!

Until next time…hugs and smiles…and three big winks to those three who just can’t stop loving me! (you know who you are!) *) *) *)

THIS COMMENT IS FOR MY DEAR LITTLE SISTER TERRY:
I REALIZE THAT YOU MUST BE FEELING RATHER LONESOME AS OF LATE, WHAT WITH YOUR BIRTHDAY COMING AND GOING -NOT ONE CALL OR CARD ETC...AND WITH THE HOLIDAYS COMING YOU ARE FEELING THE PAIN OF ONE WHO HAS EFFECTIVELY TOLD YOUR FAMILY TO ROT AND DIE.
I KNOW YOU HAVE BEEN HERE LEAVING YOUR COMMENTS FOR ME AND TRYING TO BE VERY NASTY AND HURTFUL ONCE AGAIN...BUT TRUST ME LITTLE SISTER, THE ONLY THING THAT HURTS IS KNOWING THAT YOU REFER TO OUR PARENTS AS BILE...AND THAT YOU HAVE SUCH HATE IN YOUR HEART FOR EVERY ONE OF US THAT YOU WOULD STOOP SO LOW AS TO NOT EVEN PHONE ANYONE WHEN AUNT KAY PASSED AWAY OR WHEN OUR OWN FATHER NEARLY DIED LAST SUMMER. IT HAS BEEN A YEAR SINCE ANYONE OF US HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED YOU IN ANY WAY AT ALL BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT YOU ASKED US TO DO. YET YOU CONTINUE TO HARASS US ALL VIA THE IGNORANT AND CLASSLESS COMMENTS YOU CONTINUE TO LEAVE ON MY BLOG SPACE. THEY WILL NEVER BE PUBLISHED...AND I DO NOT PUBLISH EVERY DAY...NOR WILL I BOTHER TO APPEASE YOU IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM ANYMORE...
MOM, DAD AND I HAVE MOVED ON WITH OUR LIVES WITHOUT YOUR DRAMA...THE ONLY THING THAT ANY OF US ASK IS THAT YOU PLEASE TAKE YOUR MEDICATION...AS YOUR SICKNESS APPEARS TO BE GETTING WORSE INSTEAD OF BETTER!
WE LOVE YOU AND DO NOT WANT YOU TO PUT YOUR CHILDREN OR FAMILY THROUGH ANYMORE!
IF YOU HATE ME SO MUCH WHY DO YOU EVEN BOTHER TO DOWNLOAD MY BLOG AND TRY TO REACH ME? IF YOU NEED HELP ...PLEASE TRY TO USE MY EMAIL. I HAVE NOT BLOCKED YOUR EMAIL OR YOUR PHONE...YOU JUST NEED TO CALL AND ASK FOR HELP. THESE ANONYMOUS COMMENTS ARE NOT SO ANTONYMOUS WHEN MY STAT COUNTER TELLS ME EXACTLY WHO YOU ARE EVERY TIME YOU LOG IN.
IF YOU NEED TO TALK OR NEED HELP OF ANY KIND...JUST CALL ME...I AM ALWAYS HERE FOR YOU...BUT FOR THE LOVE OF YOUR CHILDREN...
TAKE YOUR MEDS!
sincerely,
your loving sister

Tootsie, maybe you should call your sister. Sometimes, people are hurting so bad they don't know what they need or what kind of help they need. Someone who sincerely wants to help them may be all they need for something to click and move forward.

In my experiences, when someone says they don't want you in their life, they mean the exact opposite. I think your sister must be hurting very bad and may need just a hug.....hope all is well with you.

Sorry that you are having to go through this with family. We all have family that we wish would do better. I am feeling it this year with one of my sisters. Hope it gets better Tootsie. Happy holidays.

Oh and I am looking forward to your spring babies. I love looking at the seed catalogs this time of year. Gives us gardeners something bright to think about.

Hi Tootsie.I have been slobbering over the seed catalogs too. I usually look at the new seeds offered first and want to try a few.I cannot wait to see what seeds you are planning this winter to grow. Are you and the kiddos ready for Christmas? I want to wish you and your little family a Wonderful Christmas in case I do not get back with you.May all of your wishes and dreams come true.

Hi Tootsie: I just want to say I love your new blog, and cant wait to see more of your creations. You are so talented. I also love clicking in on Tootsie time. You always have such an interesting blog and I can always count on seeing something new and creative, if not your flowers, some new project that you are working on. I love it that you can take some old piece of junk, and turn it into something beautiful. Anyone else would have thrown it away. It makes one rethink what they call junk. I know you have changed me. Have a very happy holiday with your family and friends. G.B.
