Seed Savers Delivery!

 











I ordered some heirloom seeds for the vegetable garden. It's the first time I'm ordering from them, but I really feel a pull toward saving heirlooms. Included were 2 types of lettuce, 2 types of tomatoes (homemade gravy!), onions, leeks, carrots, beans, peas and lemon balm. Many of the packets contain more seeds than I can use, so I'll be happy to pass them on. What a wonderful variety of fresh produce we should have in a few months' time. I guess I'm feeling pretty ambitious at the moment, as I've only had a tiny bit of experience bringing up veggies. Even if things don't go as planned, it's a lesson in diligence and valuable knowledge that can't be gained any other way. 
I'm all about learning...
