Thanks Tatiana

I am the lucky owner of an interesting cachet of seeds given to me by good friend Tatiana who is not only Team Leader at my local library in New Farm, but she is also the driving force behind our newly formed Gardening Group which is held at the library every second Friday of each month.

Tatiana is an avid gardener herself, producing an amazing variety of vegetables and herbs in her own garden, to the benefit of her friends and neighbours as well!

I was pondering how to photograph these seeds etc in an interesting way and decided that even with my photographic talents (?) it was a big ask. But anyway, here is the photo, and a list of the goodies.

Carrot colour mix seeds

Giant leek seeds

Fennel seeds

Broccoli Raab seeds

Potato Dutch Cream, Red and Golden shallots

Elephant garlic

Garlic Italian White

Garlic Glen Large

Garlic Monaro Purple

So I’ll be off to the allotment this weekend and get planting.

    Oh dear, that potato looks very lonely – I shall have to give some more and I’ll bring the rest of my seeds the next meeting

      Don’t worry about the lonely potato Tatiana as my daughter-in-law has included a bag of ‘Nicola’ potatoes from Green Harvest for me. So it will have companions. I will take my seed collection to the next meeting of the gardening group as this is the time to really get planting now the weather is (supposedly) cooling down. I still reckon it was 30 degrees today.
