We have seeds!

The sunflowers grow up to 6 meters apparently, we shall see. The beans are a dwarf variety that grow purple pods, why not.

The seed potatoes in the egg box are jazzy variety, in my opinion the best potatoes you can have. Second early cropping.

The other three little bags of seed potatoes came with potato growing sacks. Vivaldi are supposed to be delicious, the other two are fairly standard fodder.

Not pictured. Some verbena seeds that I was donated and a pack of tomato seeds that I gave to my mum to start off as she loves growing tomatoes and I am rubbish at them.

To come, brassicas.


Nice. We got some mayan gold seed potatoes. Trendy this year, or so I'm told. And also one early crop and Setanta maincrop, which are delicious.

Also managed to keep a good number of last year's seed potatoes so looking forward to raising some of their kin.

Our other seeds took a long time to get here this year so was glad when they arrived too. Got some serafina white courgettes, which grow very well in this climate, are tasty and are very high yield.
