I am indeed hoarding and feeling like a rat, squirrel, collecting all sorts of seeds. But then, hehehe.., I better collect, save and hoard seeds as 2012 supposed to be the dooms year. With the world supposedly coming to a halt and thus no food supplies, markets, I need to survive by growing my own food :-). So, here are the seeds that I have collected so far:
Carrot, Pak-Choi, Rutabaga, Okra, Ridgegourd, Bittergourd, Pumpkin, Kohlrabi, Drumstick, Cherry Radish, Jalapeno, Bean, Beet, White Icicle Radish, Snap Peas, Scallion, and Onion and garlic are already planted.
Herbs, Green-leafy Vegetables
Chives, Cilantro, Lettuce, Oregano, Swiss-Chard, Amaranthus, Kale, Parsley, Spinach, Argula, Fenugreek, Mustard, Cumin, Chikpeas, Lemon-Basil
Fruit trees ordered and already that exists (bought in October)
Chicago Fig, Strawberry, Blueberry, Grape, Black Chokeberry, Lingonberry, Dwarf Banana
Mammoth Sunflower, Alyssum, Dahlia, Lupine, 4 o'clock, Zinnia, Small Sunflower, Cosmos, Black-Eyed, Blanketflower, Carnation, Achillea, Star-glory (Cypress Vine), Milkweed, Roselle Hibiscus, Passion flower, Delphinium-plants, Echinacea-plant
I need to order...well...the list is way too big to put it up here but some definite must that I am going to buy soon will be Neem-plant, gooseberry-plant, dwarf lemon or orange plant and perhaps raspberry plant.
I can't wait for March to come when I get to play with all these seeds and hopefully get to grow lots of flowers, herbs and vegetable plants. As I am already growing some indoor, our house is slowly turning into a jungle, or shall I say "occupy-Boonton," with all the tables, kitchen counter-tops, stools and any empty open top occupied with indoor plants and seedling-pots.
