HI
My name is Kathy, I truly love plants and seeds. My husband used to whine about my digging in the yard. I now have him convinced that the more beds I make the less he has to mow. He is loving every minute of it now. We went to a great plant sale last night, bought more plants and are making another bed. I heard him tell the lady as we left her drive," I let her buy whatever she wants, the more beds, the less I mow."
Isn't life great.
Keep on planting

Kathy

Hi, may name is Kathy and I'm a seed/plantaholic. In the midst of planning my wedding, which is now two weeks away, and my next to oldest son's graduation, which is now 1 week away, I am still hanging out on this corner, still trading seeds and cuttings, and still participating in Round Robin swaps. And despite the fact that there will be lots of pictures, I still garden without a hat and usually without gloves.

I'm not only an addict, but do a fair bit of trade as an enabler as well. I'm known on the streets to pack large amounts of extras into my deals. I'm more than willing to create new addicts in my wake. Doing this creates a larger pool to feed my own addiction. It's all very logical, well thought out. I'm always looking for new stuff to try. I have several spots where I just sit and experiment with new seed. I always like to try it myself before suggesting it to new addicts.

My house gets messy, because I'm usually either outside planting something, or because the weather's not playing right and I have to haul the dirt and stuff inside. My kids sometimes wonder if there's gonna be any places left at the table because the plants are taking over.

I started small, just a few, common things. In less than six months I've graduated from seeds to cuttings.

So, that's my story... what'cha holdin? What'cha lookin for?

Kathy

dan_the_mailman

Hi! My name is Dan, sometimes known as Santa Dan or dan-the-mailman. Not only do I have a seed/plant addiction, I am also a Serial Gardener. My addiction began when my parents enabled me at the age of 3, and I have been a user ever since. Not only have I killed my lawn (yes, its time of death was pronounced just this past week), but I have encouraged others to join me in this most foul type of murder. I have enabled family and friends, passing them small bags of seeds, and sometimes placing perennials and annuals within their homes and yards. I am no longer alone in my crusade to enable the world, but have two cats who help me do so. One of them has become self-taught in seed inspection, and they both offer advice on who to enable next.

Please, do not help me. I do not wish to be rehabilitated. If you wish to provide me with assistance, pass me another bag of seed before taking this one to that woman over there.....

(maniacal laughter echoes back to you as I run away, passing out more bags of seed to everyone I see.....)

Kathy,

Are you my long lost sister???? DH keeps threatening me to mow off my gardens if I don't clean up the house some. I figure that I will just keep people out of the house and tell them the bathroom is broken and entertain in the gardens.

And My name is Stacie and I am a plantaholic and seedaholic. My driveway is currently lined on both sides with plants wanting to be in the ground, but we have had so much rain I haven't the time to plant them all.

booboobearbecky(Zone 4)

Hi, My name is Becky and I am a "dirtygirl." My fixation with playing in the dirt began at the age of 4 when my mother taught me how to make mudpies with tin cans. I have been playing in the dirt ever since. Once I figured out that I could grow stuff while playing in the dirt, my addiction expanded to flowers and seeds. The addiction never abated....now it's shrubs, trees, vines, vegetables, and fruits.

A DIRTYGIRL'S CONFESSION
I never truly "harvest" my raspberries, as I simply sit on the ground hidden in the raspberry patch greedily scarfing down each and every ripe unwashed berry. I angrily swat at the birds who to try to snatch my ripe berries, and never move an inch when a bear lopes along for a free snack. "These raspberries are MINE, go find your own!" I shout.

A DIRTYGIRL'S ADDICTION GONE BAD
The breaking point came early this spring when my husband tried to heat up some leftovers in the microwave, and was greeted with a bowl full of dirt, which had just finished "cooking" for my precious garden seeds. The kitchen coutertops and stove top were covered with trays of newly planted seeds, and poor hubby had no place to cook or prepare his meal. He was starving. "Too bad," I said..."how about a bowl of this lovely dirt?" (me deeply inhaling the aroma of freshly warmed dirt and smiling an evil grin).

A DIRTYGIRL'S DREAM COME TRUE
"OUT! Get all of this dirt OUT of the kitchen NOW!" my husband exclaimed, Go buy a greenhouse!! And so I did. I filled it up with seedlings and divisions in less than 2 weeks....and now I have my very own "dirtygirl playhouse" where I can play in the dirt to my heart's content. And I'm sooooooooo happy.

And there you have it...the story of me; a self confessed "dirtygirl."

Becky

LOL! I wonder if that would work for me, Becky!

Stacie, I'm sure I have several "separated before birth" sisters and brothers around here! My almost husband just laughs at me and shakes his head!

By the way... I just posted a thread on the exchange side where I'm hoping to foster the addiction in others. Any experienced addict is welcome to join in the fun and aid me in spreading the addiction!!

Hi! My name is Ann and thanks to people like Medo, I too am a seed addict! LOL
When my husband isn't looking, I like Dan try to kill any available lawn. This year I went over the edge and tried to start 400+ varieties for Winter Sowing. Unfortunately, only about 350 varieties germinated...I guess I need more lasagna beds (laughing madly...)

Hello my name is Regina and I am a seed/plantaholic and darn proud of it! And no-one is going to change that. I inherited my addiction from my mother, who grew and canned many of our veggies.
I started out on the screened-in porch and it soon looked like a nursery of seedlings pots and soil,so my husband agreed to a greenhouse. Whoo-hoo!!! Waited 6 weeks for it to arrive and another 3 to finally see it being put together....yeah!!!Finally the big day came.....the instructions said with two people would only take about 4 hrs, to put together. Yea right!!! They lied....took 2 days just to get the frame up. Helps if the company remembers to include all the pieces. But I love it..and it's all mine! Mine to feed my addiction with.........need to go now....and make up seed packs to foster my addiction with. whoooohahahaaaaaaaa..........

Hello, my name is Beth, and I am a seed/plant addict. I just started my addiction late last summer, and due to the help of many of you enablers, I am way beyond any recovery program's help....and I don't want to recover anyhow!! I have been able to pass the addiction on to several...but I am excited most at the newest prospect...my big brother is a recent medically retired sheriff that lives in Virginia, that I haven't seen in over 12 years. We all know what good therapy planting seeds is...so now I think I will see what plants/seeds that I can find to send him....and see if I can't get him addicted too!! teeheehee. Off to look up Assateague Island's spelling and zones.......snicker.... snicker......snicker.......
