Pissing in the Rain
#27
Holy muther-f-ing christ! It's like no one around here has ever heard of a fall crop or a fall planting. Had to order seeds online. Went to three chain stores, none of which had anything. Even went to Wal-mart garden center. Found plenty of Christmas supplies but not a single seed. It's still over a month 'til Hallowe'en and one can get all the plastic angel finials and colored lights one could possibly want, but a packet of turnips or radishes? You're shit outta luck. Never mind that many vegetables are better after a frost or two (beets and kale, for example), others grow through winter and snow (leaks, spinach), and still more need to be over-wintered (garlic).

I can just imagine the argument of, "Nobody buys seeds this late in the year." To which I would inform my imaginary seller, "Correct. No one will purchase seeds from you that you aren't selling."

An online search for local garden supplies/seeds just turned up the chains that I already visited and landscaping companies. I don't want trees or shrubs or hedges or a frickin' flower bed, and I don't care how well they enhance the beauty of the property. I'm preparing for the impending food shortages. Okay, I'm half-assing for the impending food shortages as I've been half-assing it for the past ten years, but still, unless it's a fruiting tree, I don't care.

Fun fact: Carrots were originally harvested for their leaves, not the roots.

More supervising.
