I have finally got the flax in the ground. It’s a few days later than the middle of May, but spring was late too.
You may have divined that I have no idea what I am doing, but I have been asking around and apparently you can just prepare the dirt, sprinkle the seed, rake it a bit, and water it — who knew?
Here is the all important flax seed and some other stuff I may be able to grow.
For all that I am not supposed to anthropomorphize other living things, and plants don’t really want anything, I figure plants do want to grow and live and will do it where ever they can, so they are on my side.
