Oh, who am I kidding? Go ahead and judge. You should all send my neighbors sympathy cards for having to share the street with this flower-bed slacker. Interestingly enough, marriage and sexual intimacy are often compared to sowing seeds, reaping harvests, tending gardens, blossoms and blooms. I have eaten my honeycomb and my honey; I have drunk my wine and my milk. I finally gave up last year and just let the weeds grow.

Sex and the single gardener
As I write this, it is almost Easter. The month is passing rapidly, and we will soon be in the middle of April. April is month of great change in the garden, and in nature, and the biggest factor driving this change is sex — the urge to reproduce.
Making new plants from old, or sex in the greenhouse--call it what you will, propagating your own plants is easy, fun and very rewarding. Seeds: Although any plant that flowers can be started from seed--and that includes virtually every plant in the kingdom with the exception of ferns, which do not flower and are propagated from spores--this method is a bit more challenging than methods such as rooting cuttings or runners. Sow the seeds about half-an-inch deep and an inch apart, place the tray in a bright, warm location, and make sure the soil never completely dries out. When seedlings appear, which should be within about three weeks, separate the larger, stronger seedlings and put them into individual 3-inch-diameter pots in a mixture of half potting mix and half peat moss. Cover each pot with a plastic baggie, keep the seedlings in a bright, warm spot, but not direct, hot sun and water as often as necessary to keep the soil slightly damp.
