Anyone else, just not this year?

I have so so so many seeds that I gathered or bought. For years I wintersowed, and a combo of wintersowed, indoor sowed. It was fun...

This year, I can't... All of a sudden it seems like it's too much work, energy... I don't understand, ss the money saved would be enormous (as opposed to if I buy..whatever, maybe I won't).

Anyone ever just go through a bad year?

RE: Anyone else, just not this year?

After gardening for 55 years, about 2 years ago, I burned out on starting plants from seeds. Occasionally, I start something from seeds, if it's something I can't buy, but if I can buy the plant, I do that instead.

The constant attention needed by the seeds/seedlings, the long wait for a mature plant, and the high rate of failure, just doesn't interest me anymore.

RE: Anyone else, just not this year?

Absolutely! Some year's I'm really into it, and then others not so much. Just go with it. Sometimes I think I won't bother in a given year, and then a month or so later, I'm ready to go. It's supposed to be fun - don't turn it into an obligation.
