I splurged. I don't want to share how much I spent on seeds, but I will tell you it was a lot. It was worth it. I regret nothing.

It all started with Mr. Brown Thumb's post on giving floral seeds instead of flowers for valentine's day. It started with these:

Once I had actual seed packets in my hand, I needed more. Earlier in the week I had been doing a lot of research of places to purchase my seeds, seed swaps, heirloom seeds and everything in between. I couldn't make it to any of the seed swaps (not that I had any seeds to swap since this is only my second season), so I just decided to purchase my seeds this year.

After much research, I decided to go with Botanical Interests. I used some of their seeds last year (Save the Bees mix and Squash mix) and was really happy with the results. I can't tell you how thrilled I was, after a long day at work, opening my mailbox to see this:

This was what's inside:

I am so excited! Seeds for days! I am now trying to get together my growing station, and figure out where that is going to be set up in my tiny apartment. Thanks to all my Twitter garden peeps for helping out with this project! I have been learning a ton so far!

  1. I'm glad I'm a bad influence and you got some seeds. After a while you start to save seeds from the ones you bought and you don't have to spend a lot on seeds in the future. BTW, I added your blog to my blogroll.
