Current Seed Inventory

Since one of my goals this year is to start the majority of what I grow from seed, it’s a good thing I have been given or traded lots of seeds last fall.

Bev, my “Garden Guru” is responsible for having given me tons of seeds over the last few years, especially in the perennial and herb departments.  Through swapping seeds with Mimi at Gardening in the Boroughs of NYC, Kati at Revel Gardener, Elaine at Bucolic Bushwick, and Ralph in Staten Island,  I managed to get a lot of choice vegetable seeds as well. Thanks everyone!

Here’s a list of what I’ve traded, been given, or have leftover to grow this year.  Some are a few years old, so I’m not sure how they’ve held up.  I have more seeds than I have room (or sunlight!) for plants, so if you see something you are interested in trying out or trading for, let me know!

  1. I have an OUTHOUSE Tomato, yes, I said OUTHOUSE, I don’t have to start it from seed, it starts itself and yes, it got it’s name because it was found growing outside an old outhouse. I think I have ONE plant that is coming up this year on it’s own, of course I do keep seeds from it too. If the one I have comes through, I would be happy to send you some of the seeds. Imagine a tomato you don’t have to start in Feb. then pamper till the ground thaws! Plus they are like sunshine in your mouth. Very small tomatoes, about cherry size of smaller, but delicious!
