Sort Your Seeds (Day 23 of 30 DTABG)

We have a lot of seeds and sometimes it’s good to go through them all. We did this of course at the beginning of the growing season when we were first getting started, but it is a nice habit to keep going through them. Just yesterday we realized that it’s time to start the radiccio seeds (seed packet says late June) and we wouldn’t have remembered that if we hadn’t gone through everything. Luckily we have a few open spots in the garden now that the garlic, onions and shallots are out.

This is also a good time to ditch the seeds of plants that didn’t work out. Like those St. Valery carrots I just wrote about? They got filed in the round can this time. Its a shame to throw away good seeds, but we are finding more and more that it’s best to just get rid of things we don’t like rather than keep trying them year after year and end up disappointed.
Give it a try, go through your seeds and see if you forgot to plant anything. See if your autumn garden crops need planting now. Tell me what you find.

  1. The pumpkins were sewn June 10. They sprouted 5 days later. Once I finally clear out the onion patch, I intend to sew the cauliflower and broccoli seeds. Cabbage is next; but I needto figure out where.

      Oh Cabbage! We forgot about cabbage! We keep trying it but I think we either aren’t in cabbage growing country or we get the timing wrong because only about half of our crop ends up getting a true cabbage head. Thanks for the reminder Maybelline. I can’t wait to see your mature pumpkins, we haven’t grown true pumpkins for a few years now.
