The holidays came a little early for me. As I have mentioned before I am a bit of a seed addict. I can’t help myself I see the shiny well photographed seed packet and I must buy them. In fact the downside of fall/winter is the limited planting opportunities.
That’s why I was so excite to find the website Wintersown.org. This is a program that encourages people to sow there seeds outdoors using green houses made from recycled materials. They will send you a variety of seeds for free to encourage gardeners to keep on planting thorough out the winter. The website states that it will send you six packets of seeds but I actually received double that amount. Some of them were what they called paritals and corious which where donated partial packets of seeds. All I did was send a self-addressed envelope to them and a week later I receive a fat envelope of seeds. It’s great because I received a variety of different flowers, vegetables, and plants some of which were completely foreign to me. It appears that some of the seeds where harvested by gardeners from their own plants. I should have some interesting results.
Tomato Mix (awesome)
Robert Johnson (totally new to me, a plant named after the famous bluesman)
Pot Marigold Mix
Huskers Red Penstemon (Another new one for me)
Purple Coneflower (Perfect for my area)
Anise-Hyssop (Very popular in our area should be fun to try to grow)
Spider Flower (A pretty flower that I have never seen before)
I’ll keep you updated on how they turn out.
