What I didn't do all summer

I have neglected my plants ALL summer and now that summer is over, I am trying to salvage the wreckage. It could be much worse - maybe this was just a test of the strength and resilience of cacti, and to prove to myself that they don't need to be taken care of. True for some, but not for others - I have quite a few that are none the worse, and quite a few that are NO LONGER ALIVE!

Well, such is life, and I have to move on and see how I can juggle work and home and still find time to do the things that I find pleasing and relaxing (like sitting and working with my plants ona Sunday morning).

I'm tempted to get another batch of seeds to sow, as the end of the year draws near, but I wonder if I really should, since I am out of space with what I am working with, and I don;t know where I will put more if I have success with germination and growth. In fact, it was good to have not so much growth this year because of my lack of time, because I don't know where I would put them all!
