    Foxgloves in the forest and then I spread them around in places where there are none. I always imagined digitalis would be large seeds, how wrong can you be?
    Petunia from plants rescued dying from Homebase, trouble is despite their beauty no flying insects seem to go near them.

    I have been wandering around with various tubs to put seeds in. So far:
    nigella
    magnolia blossom tendril pea
    red swan beans
    naughty mariella marigolds
    black scabious
    cerinthe
    borage
    sunflowers
    squidgy, stinky potato apples for true potato seed
    various tomatoes
    Dobies purple beetroot - masses of this, I should have enough seed to supply a whole country!

    Seeds I have saved so far this year:
    Beans - dwarf acquilon and 2 weird mutations of borlotti.
    Dried beans for eating - CToT, borlotti, gigantes, yard/snake beans.
    Chilli - three padron peppers drying nicely, red chilli seeds from coop that was really spicy
    Tomato - Roma
    Salads - some rocket that flowered before i got a chance to eat them
    Squash - hoping to harvest the seeds for sowing for the uchiki kuri and Anna Swartz hubbard.

    Chopped the seed heads off lettuce and shook them over the GH beds.
    Popped a few more dried bean pods for assorted, unnamed beans.
    Make 2019 the Year of Random Seed sowing

    All we are saying is..........Give seeds a chance.
