I got home to find two well stuffed Jiffy bags on the mat on Tuesday, the unmistakable arrival of the seed order. Somehow it always gives me the urge to start planting but a quick look at the weather and the fact we haven't yet bought a bag of potting compost soon puts stop to that idea, as the accompanying "Success with Seeds" booklet says, don't be in too much of a hurry to get things started, wait for the weather.
If you add this little lot to the leftovers from last year, (see 4th Jan), and the 2 bags of seed potatoes in the garage and it could be a busy year.
This years seed bill was a higher one, mostly because we dumped a lot of old seed and decided to try some new varieties, a total of £57. Heather is thinking of cataloguing our produce this year to see how much we make back. The asparagus certainly pays for itself lets see what else does.
So how much did you spend and have you added up how much your crops are worth?
