feeling feral with rocket salad

Tonight I planted seeds by headlamp. The experience was easy enough. I mean, I do have two exterior lights in my back yard (my husband is a recent electrician and I am sure that number will grow soon).

But I felt sort of wild sowing arugula by moonlight.

I planted Botanical Interests Arugula Mediterranean Rocket Salad.

I don’t know if it is the whole equinox theory but I feel a bit rough and uncultivated the last few days. I have been staying up late and unable to focus on the things I am supposed to focus on (like work, cleaning my house, blah). I am rabid for movement. It is the bum ankle thing too I’m sure.

    I just picked up the latest issue of Garden Design from the library free bin and they had a short article on garden blogs. Here are a few of the blogs they cited:
    Dreams and Bones
    Human Flower Project
    Garden Rant
    Seed Head

    I have NEVER planted anything at night. I have stolen flowers from gardens at night, I admit.
    Is the arugula supposed to grow better when planted at night? Aren’t there other things that are supposed to be planted at night?
    Let me know. I have many sleepless nights that could be put to good use. Like tonight. Here I’m reading this blog when I could be sowing seeds.
