Hurrah, my book is almost off to the printers but my booking doings are officially over. I now only have to wait until the 10th of March to hold a copy in my hands. The book will be in shops on the 27th of March in The Netherlands and Belgium. I will soon dedicate a whole post on dates and future international releases.
And now on with this post and lots more blogging time!!
I always start to plan and gather seeds I want to sow in my garden in January so that I can jump start them in my greenhouse in February. These will be seeds to plant out in the garden in March/April/May/June.
I try not to buy lots of seeds instead I try to save them, dry them and store them in bags. It's simple to dry seeds. For example the butternut seeds are from one I used last week for dinner. I washed the seeds and dried them for a week on a paper towel. In April I'll put them in one of those (recycled hyacinth) pink pots, let them grow in my greenhouse until May and plant them out in the garden. It's so cool to actually grow the same butternut in my own garden just from a seed. Boy do I love growing plants ...
I've made a seed bag for you and me to join. They come in pink and green and there's room on the back to add information and instructions.
Use a medium weight paper for the bags, for example 120 gram. If you use thicker paper the glue will not hold it once you stuff bigger seeds in the bags.

Next time I'll make some boxes for you to store your peas in. But for now, have fun!
ps: there's a typo on all the images (whatch instead of watch) It has been changed in the PDF files.
