How Many Seeds are Too Many?

I sorted out all my seeds. There are now 3 containers, one is for seed packets, another is for seeds to be planted out, and the last is for the empty packets that will eventually be filled with saved seed. This organising inspired me to plant the following:

*Butternut Pumpkin
*Extra Early Sweet Corn
Super Sweet Bicolour Corn
*Hollow Crown Parsnip
*Romanesco Zucchini
*Spaghetti Squash
*Luffa
*Pickling Cucumber
*Lebanese Cucumber
*Sunflowers

If anyone has been paying close attention to my recent plantings, you will notice that if all the seeds I have planted recently germinate (actually, if only 20% germinate), then I should have a bumper crop this year. That is of course if I can hack my way through the vines at my front door and actually get to the garden.

I also made Impossible pie for lunch. If you have never heard of this, then it could be basically described as a quiche once it is cooked. The bit that makes it amazing (or impossible), is that all the ingredients are mixed together and poured into a pie dish. Due to the some strange and mysterious reaction that occurs, the ingredients actually separate out so you are left with a pastry crust and a quiche on top – amazing stuff! This one was wonderfully homegrown. It had eggs from our chooks and greens from the garden and tasted so wholesome you could have sworn it had came right out of an Amish kitchen.

    I always plant lots too – can’t have too many seedlings and you can always thin them – so I tell myself, lol, which is why our carrots and leeks are “baby” and not normal sized 😉Good luck to your seeds!
