Expect the plan to go off the rails…

It’s only the first week of planting seeds and I’m already throwing the schedule out the window.  But I made the choice (mistake?) to look back at the flowers that were blooming in May of previous years. This one sweet pea photo ruined my plan. 

 I wasn’t going to grow more than a handful of vines to supplement spring bouquets this year, but this picture changed my mind instantly. I immediately ordered more seeds and plan to start them the moment they arrive.  

Are sweet peas practical? No.  Do they have the best vase life? Also no. Is it impossible to stay on top of harvesting them and do they always go to seed by early July? Yes. But are they worth it… my heart says YES!
