Earlier this summer I got some marigolds with the intention of planting them in the ground and nurturing them. Hey, I love to garden, but they never got out of their market packs - well, at least not the majority of them. I managed to get 6 in the ground...
Marigolds In The Ground
The rest stayed in their packs on the deck. As the flowers mature, I pick them off and place them in a zip-lock bag. Then freeze them. I plan to use them to dye some yarn later this year. I just have to do a lot more reading about it. Perhaps I should consult Felicia. She's a major dyer.
