2012 Seed Box

This year we have way too many seeds.

We bought too many last year, but didn’t get to plant many of them, we simply overestimated how much preparation the new allotment plot needed.

This year, we were only intending to buy a few, to fill the gaps, but as always, it’s hard not to be tempted to add just one more item to the shopping basket… click, "oooh that looks good", click… And then we ran the competition with Seed Parade, and that came with a gift selection of lots of seeds too!

Normally I break down all the seeds we’ve bought, and prices for each.

This time I’m just going to copy and paste in the full list of what we have in the seed box. We know we won’t grow all these in 2012, and will save some for 2013. We’re also sharing some with friends and family!
