Sorting seeds is almost as fun as sowing them
My name is Allan. I am an addict. I can’t stop scoring seed. It’s as if the joy is in the collecting not the sowing and growing (though I love to do that, too). Every spring, around now, I sort seed, gather the packets into groups, into leafy crops and flowers, assorted fruits and roots.
There will be multiple versions of the same packets, many from the same supplier. I also suffer from seed amnesia, groundhog days of growing. I tell myself it’s about supporting small producers, though I will always save seed, too.
