More on seeds
Bee balm (bergamot, monarda didyma) seed head
Oh okay I was feeling pretty good about having made my seed order already. I knew more seed catalogs were coming, and today alone the mailbox had six (6!). I *love* Fedco, but my zone 6-7 is a bit more warm than its Maine headquarters, so it got me thinking about what else I "need" for the garden.
Then I remembered Thanksgiving. We did the 100-Mile Thanksgiving, sans sweet potatoes! And guess what Fedco doesn't carry! Quel horreur.
They also don't carry angelica. It's a monster herb plant that attracts beneficial insects, and would be lovely at the center of the garden. Hmm. Someone else (or two or three) is still going to get my seed money.
