Ring Around the Marigold

Marigold
10 or so years ago my youngest daughter brought home a packet of marigold seeds called “Little Tiger” (or something close to that) she’d won in a drawing at school. The first year we grew them they were, in fact, striped orange and yellow like a tiger.

Each year we saved some seeds and planted them again. But as time went the stripes faded and a new pattern emerged with an orange flower ringed by a yellow band. Perhaps a tiger no more, but still a sunny little flower in a pot.

Sage Osterfeld
I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
