Happy 1 year of being a blogger and seemingly good ideas.

Let’s celebrate together! I have published 53 posts and have 54 followers, most of whom I don’t know. I have added one post every Thursday morning. I’m so enjoying my journey of sharing and hopefully helping people learn new things and enjoy some cool topics. I am grateful for all that have read my blog and have followed it.

It will be awesome to see what the next year brings. Thank you to the friends that inspired me and cheered me on. I might give credit to my more than awesome proofreader and partner, I am blessed with encouragement when I have writer’s blah.

Some weeks I did not know what to post, I got my ideas together and then put them typed them out even when I did not feel so good. Please share with me topics that you might enjoy reading in the future. It would be nice to read what topics of mine you have already that inspired you.

Ok now that this thank you is done, on with the seemingly good ideas. As people that know me well I have a whole storyline of such ideas.

From reading my past blog topics you may know I’m a gardener. Now is the last of the season where all the seeds I have collected need to be separated from the stalks and other plant matter.

I have tiny catnip seeds that are hugged into their dried flower stalks very tightly. Up till now I close my hand loosely around the flower head and spin the stick working out the seed with the spinning motion hitting my hand.. It is a slow process. I was like I have a salad spinner that would do that on a larger scale on one stalk at a time.  I stuffed all the stalks in, put the lid on and pulled the tab that spins this thing like mad.

Good thinking, till I see small black seeds shooting all over the floor.. Sigh.. The spinner has an opening on the side that is not meant to be there. SO I guess it worked but I will likely have small black seeds (smaller than a ballpoint pen head) all over. I’m sure I will still find them up till the time we do a final clean to move..

This is some of the seeds I had swept up, If you look at the green, you will see the gap

Thankful for brooms and dustpans

Have you had any seamily good ideas that kinda worked? Maybe you have some good tips on getting seed out of the pods. Looking forward to your life or gardening tip

Take care till you read again.
