Burlap, DoDo Birds, and Autumn’s Arrival…

Burlap Coffee Bean Sack with Sunflowers to save.

As Autumn prepares its arrival, my thoughts turn to the garden and to the rows and rows of Zinnia to dead-head, preserving dried flowers for seed to plant next year’s garden.

Burlap Sacks are going the way of the DoDo Bird (phonetically, Dough-Dough Bird). The sacks I’ve obtained are from an obliging coffee shop in Louisville so they smell nicely of fair-traded coffee beans and are very decorative, to boot!

Plastic Mesh bags have replaced Burlap in the intervening years since I last used them as a teenager when they were quite common. The mesh bags are good, however, I had lots of volunteer zinnia and sunflower emerge in the garden this year from where I had simply set the bag down (and seed fell out). That would not happen with Burlap, so Burlap wins in my book.

More later from Groundhog Hill.
