Winter just will not give way to Spring! We are back to single digit predictions, below freezing temperatures, icy wind, and snow flakes falling from gloomy, gray skies. I dreamed buds were on the trees, but none have even tried to emerge from the branches. There is not a single crocus.
So, what does one do on these lengthy, drawn out, wintery days? One takes inventory of their seeds! I jumped the gun the other day and went bonkers in Lowes picking out packet upon packet of seeds. I was shocked when the register totaled $40! Did I really need all these seeds? Turns out I didn't. I pulled down my box of saved seeds and discovered I am a seed hoarder! I had so many seeds that I am able to return nearly half the seeds I bought at Lowes!
Here's my seed list:
Spinach (two varieties)
Lettuce (several varieties)
Kale (two varieties)
Carrots (3 varieties)
Patty Pan Squash
Peas (3 varieties)
Sweet Peppers (3 varieties)
Several Odd Seeds (Huckleberries, Husk Tomatoes, etc)
The early indoor starters I won't be able to do this year. I don't have a place to start seeds 6-8 weeks before the last frost and I do not have a greenhouse. Those I will purchase in plant form from the local greenhouse.
