Grrrrr - I threw out my seeds...

harmonypMarch 1, 2013

I KNEW this was going to happen. I've been pampering seeds in the fridge since December now. Was just getting to the point where I was bringing them out on occasion to "warm up" a little, in hopes of getting them to start waking up. I did a fridge cleaning last week. Standard - after grocery shopping after work, making it my normal 14 hr day of no breaks. Fridge looks awesome - even washed all the shelves. And that cruddy little round plastic thingy that held those precious little seeds is sitting in landfill somewhere.

You have my sympathies. I've done it more than once myself. Oh,well. Next year is another day....

"Oh,well. Next year is another day...." , or at least, it feels that way with each passing year! As Kermit the Frog said, "Time's sure fun when you're having flies!" Kim

About 5 years ago I bought a little used refrigerator and chilled several large batches of tulip and hyacinth bulbs all winter. Took them out and put them in a box on the north side of the house behind a bush to keep them cool until I was ready to plant. Forgot all about them and when I went back, critters had eaten everything and just left droppings and papery husks in the box.

Ahh... I can always count on you guys to make me feel better. Thanks!!! I'm having so much luck with the cuttings, heck - I'm goin for it. Will try a little manual cross-pollination this year, and get those seeds to open!! Was the intention anyways.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that, harmony! Next year go to the dollar store and buy a container that's a bright color and mark it so it doesn't happen again. I keep mine in a grocery bag but then I don't clean my fridge that often, lol!
