every year. every year the january itch becomes unbearable, so i pull out all of the seeds and mark where the planting date is on the calendar (20 weeks out btw).
i pull out all of the seeds i will be growing this year, reserving all the other seeds sorted in totes by type for the seed swap.
my seeds are then sorted by direct sow, seeds started for my garden, and seeds started for the community garden seedling drive.
above are my direct sow seeds for 2018. some flowers/herbs are missing as they're in-transit via floret flower farm.
above are the seeds i will be starting indoors for my 2018 garden, minus a few flowers/herbs from floret flower farm. there are some overlaps in what i'm starting for my personal garden and what i'll be starting for the community garden's second annual seedling drive.
above are the seeds i am starting indoors for the community garden seedling drive. i found last year people like basil. all the basil. so i'm doing like 5 types of basil, including a gorgeous variety via floret flower farm.
tomatoes and peppers are the obvious other favorites for the seedling drive. i picked some awesome ones to grow this year. if you're local, i hope you'll come by the garden and pick up your plant(s). all money (i ask that all seedlings are for donation) made from these seedlings is donated to the community garden.
the seeds in the giant packs are seeds that i saved from plants growing from abandoned plots at the community garden or from my favorite farmer's organic tomatoes. i did a germination test on some of them, all 100% germinated. here's to a bountiful 2018 garden!
