my growing late winter seed collection
I've heard that you shouldn't go grocery shopping when you're hungry. Is there a similar saying for seed shopping in late winter? When you're really tired of snow and really looking forward to green, growing, sun and warm. But you already have seeds for at least seven gardens?
Whole Foods now has a new rack of heirloom seeds (Seeds of Change) back by the meat counter. I went in for kebabs and couldn't resist a few packets. Peas (Cascadia Bush Snap) will go in soon. Peppers (Nardello) looked sweet and red. And I forgot to mail order spinach (Bloomsdale).
My friend Elaine looked at my seed collection the other day and said - Are you going to grow ALL of these? I do have a lot of seeds. But then, I think I'll grow MOST (if not all) of them. I moved my collection tonight to a bigger box. They fit better in it.
