Seeds for the Garden

Oh how I love my odd little garden filled with heirlooms and things you cannot find at the stores or markets in central Ohio. I cut & paste the list from my receipts and left the prices. That is the first thing I would want to know and to look at the pictures. This year I am going to try to be good about saving seeds.

I like to plant a lot of lettuce. It is one of the best veggies that takes little to no effort when you are busy. I like to toss some herbs in with the greens for extra flavor. My favorites are arugula and dill, Basil is nice and so are chives.
If you stop by while the arugula needs thinning or getting ready for a replant.... Bill plants so much we will stick a bag in your car. I have tossed a trash can full of it out.

I heard that arugula pesto is good, but I also like it on sandwiches.
