As the weeks pass by we are all noticing different shortages or items that are either limited/rationed or not on the shelves at all. Not much has changed at our local supermarkets, the same things apply with limits of one or two items in so many categories. But now the limits and hard to get items have extended to the plant nursery. I found this at our local nursery and they said three companies that supply them say they will have no seeds for the rest of the year and the fourth company doesn't even answer the phone anymore. And seedlings were not much better. I placed my name on a waiting list however and this led to some success! Like finding flour I was over the moon excited to get seedlings!
Now we have many seed savers in the group (and too many to mention) but SewingCreations and Jane have both inspired me to save seeds. And when you have gardening friends seeds are a good gift! Like soap and face masks seeds are now worth more than gold!
Many things will grow from a cutting, some things propagate themselves. I once had a Lavender bush that had babies come up all around it year after year. I dug them up and potted them continually! So now we can think of ways to get some food growing in any way we can.
Vicky and I were talking about how to creatively get around the seed issue and she wrote....
The little birds...
If you watch little birds you will see they are busy and happy! Using whatever they can find they create the most gorgeous little nest.
I would be the little bird with some glittery thread in her nest!
We can be like this. Happily working away with the things that are available to us to create a beautiful and happy home.
All the while with a little song in our heart.
