From the beginning of this blog, it should have been obvious to you that I am one sparkler short of a genuine firecracker. I’m assuming this since my family and friends reminded me of the fact way too often.
Worst of all, I think Momma was right. I ain’t got a lick ‘a common sense. It was Sunday night, December 29. I was cruising the posts on the only “secret” Facebook group to which I belong when that lack of common sense smacked me upside the head. Smacked me so hard I almost screeched out loud. It was so obvious I should have thought of it myself especially since I’ve been trying to downsize my “stuff.”
‘Twas a compact way to save seeds. A downsizer’s dream!
First, you need to see the seed saving system I arrived at in the last year.
Now, look at the downsizer’s notebook Tonya uses.
Is that not INGENIOUS? The seeds are stored in teeny tiny clear plastic zip lock baggies which can be purchased in the craft section at Wal-Mart (100 for $1.00) or, if you are not a Wal-Mart fan, at Hobby Lobby or JoAnns. The zip lock baggies are then inserted in 3-ring baseball card collector sheets which Wal-Mart also carries but you might have to ask for them. Years ago, they were at the front of the store, near the cash registers, with other collectible stuff.
While not exactly admitting to a shortage of sparklers, Tonya did confess the seed notebook idea was not hers. It came at the urging of a friend of hers. Quite frankly, I don’t care who came up with the idea, I just want to copy it! I want to know how many of you who play with seeds consider this a downsizing dream.
