I'm anxious to start my winter sowing project and decided to go shopping today for more seeds. Most that I've already purchased are for direct sowing. I thought one of the largest nurseries in Fishers might have seeds, so I stopped in today. They didn't have single packet of seeds in the whole store. Not only that, but most of the time, I was the only customer in the store, there were three people working and no one so much as acknowledged my presence. I don't understand why they would work so hard to create such a beautiful nursery, but then snub the customers. Maybe they don't really want customers in the dead of winter, I don't know. I didn't need help with anything and I was just browsing, but they walked past me several times while rearranging things and never even made eye contact. It was very unwelcoming. Anyway, I saw several things I'd love to have, but I'll either do without or find them elsewhere.
One thing that really caught my fancy while there today was the display of wheat grass. I have lots of wheat here because several years ago I bought a large amount from a co-op. The wheat had rocks in it and I didn't want to use it in my grinder. It really wasn't that expensive, but for some crazy reason I haven't been able to throw it away. Come to think of it, we even moved it here from Alabama with us. I guess subconsciously I've been saving it in case we have a great depression or something.
Anyway, growing this wheat grass would be a perfect use for the wheat. I'm sure my kitty will love it too. The glass containers are filled with the water polymer crystals and the wheat is poured on top. No soil involved at all. I have the wheat, the glass container, now all I need is to get the water crystals. I'm looking forward to doing this fun project.
The best seed buying places I've found so far are Menards and Meijers. Both have really good selections. Hopefully tomorrow I'll have time to post my seed selections.
