One small note before we get down to business.  I am a sci-fi geek as well as a SAP. It doesn’t go so far as having ever played Dungeons and Dragons, though. (To be honest, I’m surprised I never did.) Well, we FINALLY just watched Avatar. Ok, well, we watched the first 1/4 of it then I watched the rest of it. (See, he is NOT a sci-fi geek.) And I cried. Twice. And I want to watch it again. All weekend. Ok, it feels a bit better to admit that.

Actual DaisyPatch news begins here: Did you see the “That 70’s Show” episode where Eric has this dream sequence…”Panties..Glorious Panties?”  That’s how I feel with seeds right now. They’re arriving by mail, I’m taking them out of cabinets, drawers, jars and refrigerators. They are everywhere. I am poring over them like, oh I don’t know, my old Star Wars trading cards perhaps? The ones that came with the worst bubble gum ever. I am pretty sure I saw them in our basement one day, by the way. Hmmm…wonder what they’re worth. It looks like some of those cards are worth about 25cents each. I might have enough to buy…I think at least a packet of seeds.

(Man, look at that, FULL CIRCLE. I am ON FIRE! If you are not keeping up, I went from Sci-Fi to Seeds, back to Sci-Fi and then back to Seeds. Technically, 2 circles. Damn.)

I have pulled the ultimate rookie move (until I pull the next ultimate rookie move). I ordered seeds based upon the name and the picture. Yup. I have no idea…Well, except the beets. I ordered the beets because they were identified as good Winter keepers. Other than that…”Ooh, purple carrots.” Click. “Ooh, Sunberry, what’s that?” Click. “Druzba? How do you say that? DROOZbuh. DroozBAAA. DRUZbuuuuh. Darooooozzzbaaaaaa. Yeah. I want that. I want to say ‘Darooooozzzbaaaaaa.‘” Click. (I promise to learn how to insert .wav files before next post with sound! For now, deal with that.)

I also, in keeping with my resolutions, have ordered Daisies. Shasta Daisies, OxEye Daisies and Painted Daisies. We’re called the DaisyPatch for crissakes, we’re gonna have some damn daisies. HooRah.

So, keep coming back as I keep you posted about all these unique (and hopefully edible, crap, what if they’re not?!) vegetable varieties.

Next post…Pics of some freaky bird-chicken-hawk-foghorn-leghorn-falcony-owl thing that Keith has been watching in the backyard and a philosphical discussion (with myself, oh yeah, it can happen) about what actually defines “edible” because, I have started to question that a little bit.

*Now, hm, what to name this post. Star Seeds? BattleSeed Galactica? DeepSpace Seed? SeedGate 9?…
