Here it is seed starting time
trays are present
soil mix is present
heat pads are present
racks are present
now guess who is missing.
Seems the cleaning lady who
decided that the shoe box full
of seeds was to be thrown out
when asked she replied she didn't
look in the box she just tossed
it in the garbage bag
Now it's off to the stores and the cataloges
to replace
happy gardening every one

Our housekeeper was used to the dining room table being covered in boxes full of seeds and dried flower heads. The downstairs fridge as well. She knows not to mess with any of it. Hey it's less for her to clean. lol I have a wide variety of extras and would be happy to send them for postage. It will be about a week or two before I can get them out. Just let me know.

A friend of mine does all kinds of hand-crafts: quilting, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, & more. She kept things in a big green lawn & leaf bag to keep them clean. Her husband threw the whole lot out. It represented years of work. My neighbor worked at the dump, so we even went there and looked-to no avail. It sure is sad when this sort of things happens.

Did you lose anything hard to find? Maybe someone here has it.
Sorry about your seeds,
Robin

RE: Oh No she didn't

my craft/seed/hobby room is off limits! I don't care if there are things sliding out from under the door, if anyone touches anything in there, it will be off to the compost pile with them!!

RE: Oh No she didn't

i'd say put it in a tub like thingi and mark it, and let her know nicely that this is for seeds, so don't throw it out!!! :')) but i do understand her point, in our house, we keep them shoe boxes! i do have some hibiscus if your interested.
hollyhocks and some mg's and if your into 4'oclocks i have some :')) email me if ya want some, also other stuff too :'))

My cat did almost the same thing, except it was trays full of seedlings--she knocked the trays on the floor and scratched them up like a litter box. She denied it of course; simply licked her paw and washed her face, but I knew. Tried to withhold her Tender Vittles until she paid me back, now she's scratching the heck out of the couch, but I'm determined to hold out until I get restitution. Yeah, and I'm gonna make her sow and transplant the seeds too.
