I've written before, about my seed addiction. How I love growing things on in my greenhouse, and seeing how they turn out (or don't) as plants.
So when I found out via Twitter about #Seedypenpals - A scheme to partner up complete strangers in different parts of the UK, - and get them to introduce themselves and send on an appropriate pack of seeds, I jumped at the chance.
I sent my pack of seeds on to Bethan - who is a beginner gardener and starting to organise a community garden at her London University. - I was not at all organised, so can't tell you what I sent, as I didn't make a list, - but it was salads and veg to get them started.
Then when I got back from Holiday, - I had a lovely pack from my Seedypenpal Jen, -
Pak Choi Canton White, Broccoli Monaco, Cabbage (spring greens) Greensleeves,Rocket Pegasus, and Japanese Onion Hi Keeper.
They've all been sown in trays in my greenhouse and so far, i've already got rocket and Pak choi germinated, so i'm looking forward to plenty of Hungry gap crops next year.
