It's just as fantastic as the 9 hole one (that can serve a 4 inch plan for lettuce as well) that he made me last week. I'm going to paint them to protect them, and I'm thinking about some sort of top coat as well, but I can't believe he made them both so quickly. I honestly wasn't expecting them for quite some time, and now I feel like a kid in a candy store. I'm just so stinkin' irritated that it's just turned December and spring planting is so far off.
Just imagine the straight wonderful planting rows that will soon be mine. No more sprinkle seed and hope to God some sprout for me. Now I'll know exactly where I planted seed and how much germination I got. Yes, I could eye-ball the spacing, but I always think..eh, I could tuck another seed in there...just in case, and then I never know what I did or the germination percentage I'm averaging.
I want to be so organized. I plan and replan that garden to no end and have even erased holes in the paper from where I've changed it so much, but for some reason, I tend to rebel against my organizational needs when it comes to the actual planting of the vegetables. Now I'm going to swell with pride at my straight rows and even spacings.
I'm super-crazy happy.
Now if I'll just plant the stupid vegetables where my map says I'll plant them, it will be a good year.
The morning comes early. Sweet, evenly spaced gardening dreams.
