A few months ago, an internet friend I like to refer to as the New Jersey Tomato Girl alerted me to a seed sale at the Hudson Valley Seed Library. I bought the six packets you see up there, and then I told Lydia about it. She bought… well, let’s just say a bunch more. So then we had a cocktail evening and divvied up our bounties. I now have way, way more seeds than space, which is why I’m thinking about submitting an application to join the community garden in my town for next year.

OTHER
National Pickling Cucumber (I have already had delicious pickle success with these!)
Harris Model Parsnip
Scarlet Ohno Revival Turnip
Field Peas
Garlic Chives
Butternut Squash (I saved a few of these the last time I roasted the seeds—no they’re not pumpkin seeds but it’s basically the same)

Seriously, where am I going to put all of these? I mean, I’m thinking about how much space my TWO cucumber plants have taken.

It is pretty glorious to imagine all those tomatoes, though.
