My 1st Official Seed Snatch!
We went to the Farmer's Market this evening, and as we walked around, I was deadheading the plants that the city has in the planters/raised beds for decoration. A lot of Calendula needed deadheading...a few Zins too. Many of these flowers had ripening and ripe seeds on them, when they've only begun to bloom!
DH was trying to stop me. He said, "Let the city do their job!"
But I couldn't bear it. I told him, "They aren't going to keep blooming if they aren't deadheaded!"
We made it through the circuit of vendors, and I saw a beautiful Calendula that was lemon-yellow with florets that were varied in length. Haven't seen seeds for that type.
One of the heads had ripe seeds. I put them in my pocket.
Hey, I figure it's payment for doing the city's work, right?
