Seed inventory

I really have to stop now. NO MORE SEEDS. This weekend I need to get the seedlings started and I have no idea where I’ll be putting them all. I have a terrific southern facing bay window but only a tiny table in front of it. Perhaps I’ll have to temporarily pull out the 6 foot folding table. I wonder how that will go over!

In the meantime, here’s an inventory of what I’ve got on hand:

I already have sage, oregano, a few varieties of thyme, garlic and regular chives, and tarragon growing in the front beds. Usually I also buy some sweet basil and Thai basil as well as some rosemary to plant each year. I haven’t a clue how on earth I might make room for all of the above, but clearly, I’ll have lots of seeds to share with friends. Seeing this list fully written out just illustrates how crazy I really am. That’s just between you and me, of course.
