Maybe I need an intervention. Well, the first step is admitting you have a problem. Ok. I’m Mari and I have bought more seeds than my garden can grow.
Seriously, I can’t grow that many peas, or beans. One hundred or more seeds, and I can maybe support 10 plants of that one variety, tops. But that’s not the biggest problem, because I can just save the seed. I have seeds from years past that, may or may not grow. No, the problem is that I have a catalog and I know I’m going to order more. There are such tantalizing choices, like jeweled toned purple onions, Beetberry, grey shallots, white beets, golden cherry tomatoes, the temptations are far more than what my little yard can bear.
So, anyone want to do a local (I’m talking east of 9th, west of North Cap) seed exchange or seed sharing?
I got a tad too much of the following:
Blue & Yellow Blend Peas (Cooks’s Garden #579)
Arugula (Roquette)- ’cause the stuff is still growing in the yard
& Cherry Belle Radishes
There are some seeds that I could use all the seeds for if I eat them as microsalads, which are divine and tasty. But if anyone wants to try their hand at corn mache, Black Seeded Simpson, Garden Purslane, or Red Emperor beans, I can spare some seed.
What I’d like, at least to keep from returning to the catalogs, are some regular run of the mill peas, snap, shelling or snow, leeks, and pansies.
So do you have any seed to spare or is it too early to ask?
