Picture Perfect : March Madness
One package of seeds with 12 different varieties of tomatoes sounded like a bargain to me so I bought it. Then I realized there are 60 seeds all mixed up together. I only need 2 of each sort maximum. I would like to be sure to sow each sort but don’t need 5 of them. If I only sow some of the seeds, I can’t be sure of choosing the 12 varieties. Aïe, aÏe, aïe, what to do? My friend reassured me she will be glad to have tomato plants so I will sow them all. Last year I noticed that the flowers were different on different varieties so I wondered if I could observe any differences in the seeds. Aha! Yes, some are pointier, some are darker, some are rounder, some just somehow look as if they belong together. This is one example of my March madness. (The house and garden are full of others, not necessarily restricted to March.)
