seeds galore

these are the new seeds I've ordered for this year. there's so many left from last year I hope to get them used up, and lots of seeds can be stored for a long time so they should be just fine. I buy seeds from lots of suppliers, this order is from Gardening Organic, and I have some interesting seeds left from last year from the Heirloom Vegetable Seeds. and if anything appears not to work I can easily go to my local garden centre to replace them there, I always get my seed potatoes and compost from them.
and thanks to Freecycle, a worldwide recycling group, I have a new-to -me wheelbarrow. I don't have a big garden but it really does save your back using it to carry stuff about.

I am new to blogging and almost new to gardening. I am looking foward to watching your organic garden develop, along with other garden blogs i enjoy. I found you on Snappys garden blog. Reading your posts will hopefully help me to build confidence with writing mine.

Important! :-)

Still having trouble leaving comments for others, but your seeds got me all excited... To try! Well, we'll see if this works.
