Planning next year's veggies

We've had a good first summer on our very own allotment, so when Julia suggested her Seed Swap I though it would be good fun to join in. I duly packaged up seeds and sent them off to her (you can see what I sent here), and she sent to me a HUGE selection of seeds, gorgeously packaged and even with their own little seed pouch - how cute is that?


I wish I had such neat writing, and such lovely painting skills, but I don't, so I shall content myself with growing and eating Julia's seeds next season, and looking forward to joining in the swap again in a year's time!

  6. what a great idea - and beautiful packaging. Nice to think when those start to sprout next spring you can look at them and think of their brothers and sisters growing elsewhere in friendly gardens.

  13. Those are great seed packs - how cute! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. The produce bags can get you through the winter at the market until you have your own veggies! Hope they work out for you...
