This year I decided I would not allow myself to impulse buy my seeds.  So, after creating a personal “seed inventory” in Excel, I placed my seed orders.  It feels good to buy responsibly.  I was very strict on myself with the vegetables I ordered (I hardly needed any).  But I did go a little crazy on the flowers (I only had about 3 packets of flower seed).

IMG_5761I consciously tried to order seeds that would do well in our soil and growing conditions, and I hope to start saving seeds at the end of this year’s growing season.

Spring is just around the corner!
